I suppose it's only right to persevere for the rest of the summer, but we should probably start thinking about the next cab off the rank. Presumably we take a reserve bat on the winter tours - question is do we go back to someone like Bopara or look ahead to some of the other names breaking through like Hildreth or Hales.
Hildreth deserves to be next in line. Bopara has had so many chances to make an impression, both in Tests and for the Lions, and he hasn't been able to. He hasn't exactly lit it up in Essex this year either. Hildreth deserves the next shot at it.
