I know Jimmy Neesham could slot into 4 or 5 if needed (tests only) but that leaves Kane's slot should he not be available. And I'm not saying bring in a tried former BC opener (or other failed scenario) to convert to three, I want to give some young talent in this country a look at batting in the highest level. In this case I have used the current 3, 4, or 5 from domestic One Day List A squads as most play all three forms of the game. I have also noted all three of their averages (First Class, List A and T20) and have averaged those averages for a final scoring, as they will probably be required to cover all three facets of the game. There may be other names I haven't considered so feel free to enlighten me and I'll edit them in.
Yes I am talking young talent so some oldies and ex Blackcaps don't feature. I'm looking at say 5 - 7 years from now or an injury for them to slot in.
Here is my analysis. They are in order of averaged averages, highest first.
|Name||Team||First Class Average||List A 50 over Average||T20 Average||Average across all forms.|
