Whats everyones opinion on Morgan? Its very early days but at the moment I think hes a bit of a poor mans Neil Fairbrother. It will be interesting to see how he does against better bowlers later in the summer. Providing of course that he doesn't keep coming in at 400/4!
He certainly has a lot of talent, whether he can translate that talent for shot-making into the Test game and bring in the patience and determination needed to be a Test match star is the big question. From what I've seen I'm sure he'll get the chances, and batting at six should be an advantage with the quality we have at the top of the order.

I don't ever see him becoming a top class batsman in Test match cricket, but as a number six I expect him to carve out a decent career.
