IF they are going to carry on the merry go round (please NO), then surely Burns is the next on the opener production line

StaggersBreaths - you're right, to be honest I don't actually think Mitchell is international class. I just find it quite striking that the selectors keep picking players who haven't really proved themselves as exceptional in first class cricket (while taking your points about Durham openers)

I'm afraid, Andrew, my mind is drawn irresistibly to the last time Worcs. were in the first division. Mitchell was absolutely tripe. Granted, this was a good match against a good side, but until he shows he can overcome the Gidman Gap (by which point I'm afraid he'll be too old) he's not one for the national side to my mind.
Also you're comparing him to two openers who've plied most/all of their trades at Chester-Love-Seam, a player I wouldn't have put in the squad anyway (Malan), and... well.

Fantastic win for Worcestershire.

StaggersBreaths - Mitchell has a better career record than Jennings, Westley, Stoneman, Malan...
