AFTER Eoin Morgan’s comments that England can’t fit Jonny Bairstow into their batting line-up, surely we have reached the point where Bairstow should replace Jos Buttler as wicketkeeper in One-Day Internationals?
Neither are great wicketkeepers like James Foster or Chris Read but Bairstow is head and shoulders ahead of Buttler as a batsman.
Buttler’s innings’ are often memorable but he is inconsistent. To win tournaments you need your best XI playing and Bairstow clearly deserves to play on current form.
