    It's not a fashion statement. Ownership shows you have reached the pinnacle of Australian cricket. I remember wearing a baggy in juniors and it was comfortable just not as functional as a Chappel hat for the sun.

    I think it's pretty fair to say that our batting is far weaker than our bowling at present (Clarke excluded) so IMO picking a batsman-keeper is the way to go (even if it isn't ideal).

    Wade makes runs - be it under pressure or cashing in after a good start, I'd want Wade there to put runs on the board ahead of one-ton Paine and Haddin. Yes, it means Nathan Lyon gets screwed over behind the stumps, but odds are the quicks will sooner create 25 chances in a game that the batting unit will consistently get to 5/300.

    Wade's a rubbish keeper, but he can improve - and it sounds like he is actively trying to. In time he should develop as a serviceable gloveman, who is more than handy with the bat.

    Is he a long-term 6? Probably not. But if we want an all-rounder in the side we don't exactly have much choice. None of the batsmen who can bowl are legitimate top 6 options - Wade is far closer to that. Maxwell has no temperament, Smith's technique is rubbish, Henriques is just plain mediocre and Mitch Marsh is either underperforming or injured. Not much choice with Watson and Clarke both not bowling.

    If not for Matthew Wade, Australia would have at least drew the series against SA.

    Still think it's no big deal?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Seeing as our spinners are superior to India's we should prepare 5 bunsen burners then watch Swann and Panesar destroy them.

    Shame that one averages 45 and the other over 40 against Australia though.
