Ben on...two Tims for England

The papers have been making a lot out of Tim McIntosh's 268 in Auckland's State Championship match against Canterbury. Stuff called it timely and the Herald noted that selector Richard Hadlee popped by to watch.

It is an exciting prospect to think that we might have another bright young double-centurion in the touring party to England. Bear in mind however that the only other double centuries we have seen in this year's State Championship have been scored by Bell and Sinclair.

Not to mention that McIntosh's previous form this season has been 270 runs at 27. Surely a player cannot be selected on the basis of a single innings?
