What Warner has done in this World Cup is basically what Khawaja was doing pre-World Cup. Khawaja could have easily made a hundred at a s/r of 95 like Warner did last night. Warner's best position may be opening however I think Khawaja opening and Warner at 3 (or even floating between 3-6) is better for the side than Warner opening and Khawaja at 3/floating.I think Usman is being set up to fail.
He is a 1-3 Batsman or bust. No floating down the order, no not coming in at 3 because of left/right. Pick him at 3 and play him at 3 or leave him out.
He should have come in at 3 last night and consolidated with Warner. Smith then comes in at 4 and then Maxwell then can use his firepower to greater effect.
Can't see them changing it now though.
