    Wade can't catch the damn thing.
    Paine breaks his fingers too regularly, and is utterly incapable of scoring an FC ton.

    Seems like he's a perfect fit for our test side then.

    So anyway, you're absolutely kidding yourself Salamuddin. Haddin is and always has been class. Would have to be one of the most underrated test cricketers in the world at the moment. Which suits me because tasters gonna taste.

    Was very fortunate today. Still doesn't look in control of his shot selection if you ask me.

    The guy has the ability to pull us out of **** situations pretty regularly. Reckon I can remember 5 or 6 times when we've been 7/100something and he's guided us close to 300.

    Yeah, but at the same time he's also had periods where, when one of those innings was needed, he's slapped the ball straight to short cover for 5.

    He's imperfect, but ATM he's still better than the alternatives. The discussion is now mostly about who comes in for him when he hangs up the gloves, tbh. Agree with Tangles and Benchmark that Nevill should be the guy.

    Yeh maybe, I just seem to remember a number of occasions where he's really dragged us out of the ****. I mean his first innings here has completely saved us and changed the whole tone of the game. Without his contribution (and MJs) we would have been rolled for 150ish.

    Really rate Haddin as a batsman. Has brainfarts sometimes but frequently delivers in tough situations.
    And his lofted drives are pure sex
