    Nah, he will be back. Even if Phil Hughes cements his place as an opener, Katich can always bat in the middle order.

    Hughes is no certainty to have an awesome career either. The kid could flop, get injured, take up ballet...
    Can't see it happening. Hughes will probably score runs here and Katich will probably be seen as being too old within a few months.

    35 isn't that old, but it's still pretty old. Can't see him getting recalled, for my money.

    As the population ages, do any of you think 40 of today will become the 45 of tomorrow?

    Because tbh I can see quite a few "aged" batsman playing for a long time.

    I reckon he has a couple of years left in him. I don't think Australia will let go of him all that easily either, they need his experience.

    By the way, how serious is his injury ? If it is going to rule him out for say, six months, then it will be hard for him to make a comeback.

    The length of time required for healing is highly variable. Often it may take as long as six months for complete healing to occur.

    I've learned that writing this dude off is never a good idea.

    Hope he doesn't retire, he wasted so much good form not being able to go on and make big scores like he could in FC. Concur he might do well at 6 if things aren't going well when he gets better, but in all honesty we have so many other gaps to fill that if he can play for a few more years at his current standard then he should be welcomed back with open arms.

    So was Pietersen's and it has taken him well over a year to get fully over his and get his form back.

    Good luck to Katich, anybody who is ruthlessly torn apart like he was in 05 and has the ability to go away and completely reinvent himself as a bat is one tough cookie in my book.
