    Anywho, I reckon there deserves to be more mention of the sportsmanship shown by Strauss and Andy Flower in allowing Manou to play, top stuff. I can't believe I missed Watto though.. I went to bed around 1:30ish, thinking there wouldn't be much chance of play. Lame.

    True, but if Haddin is out of the rest of the series, and they are forced into sending a back-up keeper, then Hartley or Wade would be the two choices, Hartley would be pretty neat with the gloves, but his batting isn't really at par with other keeper-batsmen around in world cricket, or even Australia for that matter.

    Wade on the other hand eventhough is pretty inexperienced, but he is a very decent keeper and also has all the makings of becoming a very good batsman with time, and eventhough it might seem like bit of a risk, but I would still pick Wade over Hartley to go to England as the back-up keeper.

    Though you never know with Aussie seletors, they might just end-up send Luke Ronchi over there as the reserve keeper.

    They could call up Hartley, and he's in England playing club cricket, I think. He did have a good season batting last year, too.

    Not getting why talk of back-ups when there's already one playing in the Test?

    I guess if Haddin is out of the next match, people are wondering if they'll bring in some cover in case the same thing happens to Manou.

    I hope Johnson joins in too, although If I was to bet before the match I would have bet on Watson being more successful. If Johnson takes 5 for though (or bowls well) I'll happily concede it was a good call to leave Clark out.

    Yes and no. Even if he takes wickets, was a risky call. That's why I called it 'brave' rather than 'good'. Has gut-feeling written all over it and why, if he takes some scalps, I won't be running back into this thread saying "See!! Told yuuuuz!" at all the nay-sayers. None of you are saying stuff I really disagree with.

    Not enough fool-hardiness in the world, tbh. I admire the entrepreneurial spirit, even in the face of all that is rational/logical. Can sometimes be all the motivation someone needs to buck the trend. Don't believe that all things need be based on cold numbers, even with a lot on the line. Sometimes there's a more intuitive logic which you might not be able to articulate at the time that informs decisions. This is why I was in favour of retaining Johnson.

    Can't agree at all with Social there. Seen a number of keepers who enjoy taking some balls off the bowlers in warm up, get the feet moving etc. Others who just prefer taking balls off the bat.
