    He has the potential but he has just started off in odis. Remember when Amla started off around same age as Bairstow, at one point, he was averaging 58 at SR 95. Ofcourse, Bairstow is much more dynamic while Amla was one-gear. Let Johnny play atleast 100 odis.

    He does an easy job of opening the inning in ODI where it is mostly boom boom on flat pitches. Doesn't have to bat depending on match situation like Root and Buttler does.

    His performance against spin is quite susceptible IMO. He averaged 22 in the UAE series and 40 on really flat Indian wickets as well.

    Back to the nonsense you posted about Root being more gifted. Lol, dude is one-dimensional as it gets. Absolutely no comparison with Bairstow averaging 50 at 100+.
    The game was not over after Bairstow's 30 odd runs. A couple of wickets from the spinners could have opened the floodgates.

    Root is the best batsman in the world when it comes to playing on any surface in any conditions. Bairstow needs more time and performances before he can be called better.

    OP should stick to the mechanics of fast bowling. Buttler is more talented and wipes the floor with both.

    Butler does not have a compact technique like Bairstow while the latter can tear apart the opposition just as easily.

    Perhaps. but in that Leeds test, bairstow was struggling against pakistani bowlers while Buttler was easily the most fluent batsman. Also at Trent Bridge when Kuldeep was bowling superbly, Buttler looked the only batsman capable of handling him while Bairstow struggled.

    As I said in another thread few weeks back, Root will prove his class in the Indian ODI series.

    Big players perform in big series. He is a master batsman unlike Bairstow, who is wonderful himself. However, Root is a player who will come good in any conditions against any bowling attack when he is at his best.

    The best ODI batsman in the world after Kohli.

    Remember, given how tight a game Edgbaston was, that Root’s 80 in the first Test was even more vital than Bairstow’s 90 in this one.

    Bairstow is a very good batsman, but Root averages 50+ in both major formats, so let’s not get too carried away.

    Root scored 94, Bairstow scored 98 in that game.

    Really dislike this thread. Both are good batsmen, it's pointless to bump this everytime either scores a good innings. It's not like both batsmen are rivals or competitiors in any way. Both have their own unique roles which are complementary.

    Despite Root being a very good player, I have never really rated Root to be an elite player. He's on the level of Inzamam/Dravid/Jayawardene. Nothing more. Right now Bairstow is the rock of this England team and should be batting at 4. Root should remain at number 3.

    England main performers in the first tests were Sam Curran, Ben Stokes and Joe Root.

    England main performers in second test till now have been James Anderson and Chris Woakes.

    It seems Jos is more closer to Johnny than Johnny is to Joe.

    Curran, Buttler, Root and Cook have comfortably outperformed him with the bat this series. I don't think bairstow is good enough to play as a batter alone.

    Yes, if he is the one who has to keep wickets at any cost, then demote him to 7 and now after having played two series, Buttler can bat at 5.

    Personally, Buttler should take gloves and continue at 7 while Johnny should play at 5 as a specialist bat.

    If Bairstow did overtake Root, he has now spun off the track and crashed.

    Averages 37 after 58 tests for a reason. He’s nowhere near Root.

    Disagree, Buttler should be a specialist five because he is a better batsman than Bairstow.

    Wider array of shots, mentally stronger, more emotionally mature, superior cricket brain. Just better.

    Bairstow to open, Buttler at #5, Foakes behind the sticks at #7.
