Someone has to slot in to our fragile top order
With Bancroft, both the Marshes and Stoinis (+ Phillipe) likely available for most the year I would expect some more improvement. Am very bullish on Jake Carder too. For a batsman of Cartwright's ability and technique surely can't be struggling as much as he has either for much longer.

I remember West Indian Rajendra Chandrika struggling in the tests he played. I thought he played awfully in the series in Australia, but it turns out he averaged 32 in that series.

He most certainly was not impressive though, with a career average of 14.

His average from five tests is 14 so you may have mixed up stats somewhere

Hopeless player. Got in on one first class hundred and an average of 25 at the time

Having watched a number of Afghanistan matches in this World Cup to see players like Mujeeb and Rashid... Gulbadin Naib has to be right up there.

Terrible player with the bat and ball. Most of his wickets have come from players trying to slog his trash out of the park.

Used to wonder how he could be so poor in tests yet such a beast (& pretty consistently) in ODI's & T20I's. Technique was never pretty but it's not like a white ball doesn't swing in the early overs of ODI's in NZ.

But yeah that was one of the most horrendous form lines for a batsman throughout a world cup I can ever recall. While unlikely could well still have a final to play in too!

Might not be able to bat, but thank goodness he can field!

Absolutely if we're talking recently, dude had the same issues 2 years ago and I thought he must of rectified them, that ball that got him tonight did nothing, he just missed it, horrible player, lock him in for no3 in the Ashes, might open the bowling too.
