Yep. Our middle order is stacked. Burl isn't going to get any chances at 4 or 5 any time soon.

To get into the team right now in basically any format you need to bat at 1 or 7. So really he's relying on his bowling advancing and becoming more consistent, and he needs to make the most of the limited batting opportunities he gets. He's effectively in direct competition with Raza. In some if not all formats, we probably won't be selecting both of them. Especially as Wes' bowling is improving too.
Wes is a better bowler and batter than Burl. Burly should focus on batting up the order than leg spin. The former makes more sense than him focusing on an even more difficult craft at age 28.
Bowler?
Wes is just a generic Dibbly dob offie like 5 others in the team. Burls a leggie and a point of difference
Burl will always be more valuable to zim as a bowler. Even if stats reflect it or not.
Wes didnt become the highest u19 wc wicket taker by being bad tho

Donald Tiripano is proving himself un-droppable. He might have missed his calling as batsmen. He may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he's let his batting do the talking

Right now Wes is a much better bowler. Until Burl sorts himself, that's that on that.

Williams is getting a bit of form back at least.

Williams despite his one man batting should have saw the team home really.
Despite this well batted Sir and should be losing man of match for his 3 wickets and 86 runs

Yet another 21 year old who went to Churchill. I don’t know what they did to that year group but they are extremely good.

You have to look at the opposition he bowled to though. I think he averaged 100+ against the Test nations and took almost all of his wickets against teams like PNG, Scotland, Canada, etc.
