It's because Brad Young is the only promising young-ish spinner around at
the moment. He definitely has potential - as an all-rounder, too - but I
think the selectors would be better off grooming him for Test cricket,
instead of possibly ruining his technique in ODIs when he's not an
established player yet. If he keeps improving then he's definitely a Test
candidate at some stage.
