Brian Bennett is the real deal

Post by Kriterion_BD »

OK I admit I haven't watched much of his innings vs Bangladesh or in the current series vs India...but his intent and his ability seem to be more than just a few good fluke strikes. Has only played 13 innings, and already has a top score of 70...but more important averages a very decent 25 and a terrific strike rate of 140+. Clearly he's the biggest talent at the moment of anyone under age 25 in the country.

Naqvi is suited at 5
Bennett is suited at 3
Raza prefer 4th
Campbell, Madande , burl prefer batting at 6th
Wes is not a good opening batter should bat down the
Order
Marumani and Kaia have failed at opening with pathetic averages..
So who should open ?
Nick Welch anyone!!!

That high score of 70 you mentioned, he got opening against you guys. In fact in that game Raza batted at 3, came in after 4 overs then him and Bennett put on 75 runs between them over the course of the next 11 overs. A real match winning partnership.
