I guess 'not unreasonably,' is open to interpretation.

S Davies was injured. I assume his opening partner was Jim Allenby. Peter Trego was in the team and has opened on various occasions before in white ball cricket - he could have opened. Wasn't Dean Elgar still in the team at that juncture? He, most certainly, would have had a better shot against the likes of Fidel Edwards, first up, than Ryan Davies would.

But, to be honest, any specialist batsman would have been a better call vs Edwards with the new ball than opening up with Ryan D.

Edited to add that I've found the scorecard:


Adam Hose played in this match - he had opened in this competition the previous season - how can he not have been a more sensible choice than Ryan D?
