There's some silly stuff being written about Dan Redfern over the past week, with regard to him being in the first team now.
No one rates him higher than I do, but the fact remains that this year he has played little cricket with A levels being his main focus.
He has played some schools matches, a few for the Seconds and now for England Under 19s, who have first call on his services for now.
To throw him in against top bowlers with that background would be thoughtless and silly. I don't think John Morris is either of these. If we had no batsmen at all it would be a different matter, but Dan will be in contention next year without doubt. For this year, leave him be to score runs against the Kiwi tourists at Under 19s
