    I don't much rate Haddin's keeping, but it's patently a cut above Wade's which is just woeful.

    Wade looks like he actually has good reflexes, but his basic technique suggests someone who took up the gauntlets relatively late. He's wrong footed when the ball deviates after passing the stumps pretty much everytime. Doesn't clang them all, but has to work a lot harder to make what should be straightforward takes.

    Think his batting definitely has potential tho. It was ultimately in a losing cause, but his 60-odd at the WACA was the only reason Oz were even in the third test versus the Yarps after the first innings.

    Hideous end to it tho, but.

    It would be a damning indictment to the baggy green in Maxwell found one sitting backwards on his undeserving head. he is a pedestrian bowler hardly capable of holding up an end and is batting is only suited to cashing in heavily on good starts by using his hard hitting ability. I can't see him ever being able to dig Australia out of trouble with either bat or ball. Khawaja has surely done enough for a place given he has made lot of shield runs in mainly difficult conditions, unlike Hughes who has been on the Adelaide pitch half the time. Haddin is past it, and there are better alternatives. However the Aussie selectors are pigeon holing every cricketer in Australia as either last resort (Khawaja, Quiney, Burns) or having great potential (Smith, Hughes, Maxwell), I hate this.

    And have people heard that Brad Hodge suddenly wants to make a comeback? Shaun Marsh is having his name tossed around as well, I can;t stand this trash.

    I think it's fair to say that BBL form is even better than SS form, what do you think?

    it seems to me that if we're gonna pick a guy who sucks against the short ball, is prone to nicking off and is a dick, we should just pick dussey

    haha, I like Social but that's fantastic. Burns in so many directions.

    On Wade, I'm not a fan of his keeping either but Jack's right that he's been in the mix for tough situations for Vic. As a 'keeper, I reckon he's a stayer but, as Bench said, at 7. Don't agree at all that he should make way for Haddin at this point.
