I think my preference would be to see Marsh bat at number 3, with the hope that Selman gets a new opening partner who he can bat with for the whole season (and ideally years to come).
I'm still worried, especially given the potentially sad outcome of Brand's visa application, that (yet again) we can't compete for promotion due to a lack of quality out-and-out batsmen at the club. As it stands, it looks like we'll be entering the season with just 5 out-and-out batsmen in the first-team squad. In the 5, I include Carlson who will miss games due to Uni, and Bragg who may not be available for selection anyway.
Would be a real shame to throw the Championship season away so early due to having to play Morgan/Salter at number 3 again, which wouldn't be fair on either of them.
