You're the one who said my stats showed something (I didn't even put any up at that point) they didn't.Look we're going to have to agree to disagree.
Maxwell's attitude to his wicket and the way he plays is not, in my opinion, compatible with long term success in Test cricket. I'd still take a player with good technique who can improve, over a cowboy who has no other tools but to hit big.
As far as the averages go, the data is too incomplete to conclude anything. Maxwells scores are 4 years old, his dismissals when playing 6 (he opened for some of that tour) do not suggest he was trying to dig in or steady the ship. Khwaja's scores are terrible. But I believe the underlying player is a better long term prospect to improve and be more consistent.
Go dig out more stats if you like, but i think I've been fairly clear on what my opinions are and why i have them.
Their stats are similar over there, ones stats against spin are worse, one failed there recently, one hasn't played there in four years
I'd prefer giving a guy a spot, who plays that spot, to give him the chance, than forcing a change, becuase someone who f’ed up over there recently "might get better"
As I said, it's just a dislike of Maxwell. You don't rate him and don't want him playing for Aus.
