riyad has the talent but he's lacking in performance, mainly as a middle order batsman. i'll give him credit for doing well in the #8 spot in tests, and being a handy part time bowler but he's done nothing more than be what i just said. if he wants to survive in the test team it's imperative that he performs in the middle order, so far he hasn't.

in ODIs if he's to continue to bat down at #7/#8 then he's going to have to improve his strike rate and ability to attack from ball one, otherwise, like in the test match format, he will need to perform in the middle order to survive.
