Leaving one innings against a very poor Westindies side he didn't do much. Every-time I see him bat his front foot goes nowhere and most international bowlers would get him out by bowling a fuller length.

His scores other than that 220 odd

17, 30, 34,11,47,23,0,52,3,14,18,4,83, 15, 29,4,6,93,0,41,19,1 and 9. So why should he have got more chances to play for England?

The Reverse Sweep

If you were as big as Key, you probably wouldn't move your front foot much either! Tres didn't really move his feet either, but he was England's best opener since Graham Gooch.To be fair, Key didn't do himself full justice when he got his turn in the England side, but if he had been given the run that Bell has been for example, he could well have improved on his record. I guess we'll never know.
