Josh Inglis Batting Position: Is He An Opener?

Josh Inglis's preferred batting position is opening. He opens for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League. 

However, for Australia, the batter has shuffled his position per the team's need. More often than not, he has opened the batting for the Aussies. But most recently, he has been batting down the order.

For instance, in the first T20 series against India in Mohali, Inglis batted at No.5. He was expected to open the innings as the Aussies didn't have any orthodox opener beside Aaron Finch. But Cameroon Green took the role and powered the Aussies in the powerplay. 

Also, he had opened and batted at No.3 during the Srilanka tour. Despite his inconsistent batting positions, Inglis has been pretty consistent in contributing to the team. 

Irrespective of his batting position, the batter has made runs. He is still the second-most run-getter as an opener for Australia in 2022. And he doesn't even play as an opener anymore.
