You are right that his 97 didn't change much, he was better than the alternatives before this game and still is, he and warner are the only really successful opening combo since rogers retired he averages 40+ in test cricket and can actually turn starts into big test scores.

If bancroft and harris are whats next in line burns is safe for the whole summer and probably beyond.
I am sure if Harris or even Bancroft opened for Australia in the 1st test they could have done as good or not better then Burns but short term Burns stays there now.

In their combined 35 knocks so far for Australia, neither has gone past 82 so there’s zero evidence to back up that claim.
