If you think that 1 test series was enough for him to be dropped thats your opinion and there is nothing wrong with that. But when you are stating a stat, it has to be fair and complete.
i don't see anything wrong with stating stats that are for example the last 12 months, last 2 years, last 3 years etc. if you start stating stats from say the last 1.5 years, 2.5 years, 3.75 years etc then it's a bit much (unless it's an entire career, or a comeback). anyway riyad's stats batting in the middle order (4-7) across his entire test career is an average of 16.91. so he pretty much has nothing backing him to get a place in the middle order, nasir has the #7 spot locked so riyad's spot comes down to whether you want 8 batsmen in the team or not.
