A Lot of people calling for

A Lot of people calling for Finch to be in the Test side.
It would be purely on the basis of his limited overs form and Australia missing Warner and Smith.
Otherwise his first class record is not that great compared to others on the Australian domestic circuit.
He bats most in the middle order. Last season for Victoria it was positions between 4 and 6 mostly.
His technique especially lack of foot movement more exposed in first class cricket than limited overs stuff hence yet to play tests.

Guys like George Bailey much the same. Has better first class record than Finch but struggled in Tests.
So it may come off once or twice against unprepared opposition but really not long-term solution! But the longer the format the more your weaknesses get exposed and good teams will exploit it (given even conditions)
