    How old is Gilchirst? 35?

    If he is dropped now he could be qualified for England before he is 40.
    Bring it on

    Yup, 35 years 20 days.

    TBH, I don't know why a lot of young Indian spinners or what not just move to South Africa or England.

    And vice versa..some big guys who can bowl fast from other countries move to India. If I had any sort of talent, thats what I'd do. If you're a young fast bowler in SA or Australia or something, you can make a lot more money playing for Indian team, assuming you make the national team.

    Please. Someone? Bracken, Johnson? Wanna come over?

    We're desperate, I'm sure the prime minister can give honorary citizenship and make you eligible right away.

    Arguable, Flower was easily a better batsman than Gilchrist, even if his keeping was not as good.

    Good to see him bat well today.

    I`m of the opinion that as long as he is the best gloveman in the country, he should have the job. He doesn`t need to average 50 to stay in the team IMO.

    He sets himself such high standards and has set these standards for wicker keepers all around the world so it shouldn't be of major concern he is only averaging around 35, sure that's poor by his standards but still perfectly acceptable.

    Like they said on SKY, he really can go from looking poor to awesome in the space of a few minutes. More so than most other batsman.
