Kieswetter's blitzkrieg in England's opening match of the tour of Bangladesh has presented them with a conundrum they might like but could have done without. Potentially prodigious talent though he may be, Kieswetter seems merely to confirm the suspicion that England's selectors are still largely dependent on players with dual passports. Stephen Brenkley has more in the Independent.
Do they open the one-day batting with him and use him as wicketkeeper? Whither Prior, whither the 13 opening partnerships already used since the last World Cup? When will the next South African knock on the door?
Kieswetter, allrounder Ajmal Shahzad, batsman Michael Carberry and spinner James Tredwell are on Sam Sheringham's radar on BBC Sport. He believes that opportunity knocks for England's new recruits on the tour of Bangladesh, with the likes of Andrew Strauss and James Anderson opting out.
