    Simon Katich getting a raw deal with the aus selectors?

    In the VB series game between aus and pakistan when aus were in trouble simon katich came to their rescue. but what do u read in the articles....the poor guy is going to be dropped from the team. why can't they drop symonds and give his place to katich? At least katich won't go for a duck!

    Because Symonds is a better one-day player than Katich.

    In tests yes, not in ODIs though. Not yet anyway.

    why not? Symonds is out of form....tell him to go and play FC cricket and get his form back...till then Katich can take his place while he's performing so well.

    It's harder to get out of the Australian team than it is to get in.

    The selectors will play Symonds for months if need be.

    I don't get it. they dropped M Waugh after that triangular series. why can't they drop Symonds? I mean, they have more than enough alternatives.

    By giving Symonds the chance to come back in form he will be better for it, if his poor form does not turn around then he will be replaced and the new player will be given time to settle into the team and prove his worth.

    If you drop players each time they have a bad run then you soon run out of players to replace them with because all players will have a bad run at some stage. Katich is placed ready to step into the team if a injury takes out one of the batsmen or Symonds cant arrest his bad form.

    The selectors should not just drop and select players on form at the moment or the team will be changing every game and thats not good practise. Faith in players ability will bring more rewards.

    Well they dropped M Waugh after that triangular ODI series because he was out of form, and he was a class player.
    and I think Symonds had enough chances already!

    Why would you not let the young talented guy(katich)not be in the team.He is a good batsman plus a good fielder as well.It shows how unfair cricket is in australia.

    Shows how good players are.They made a history by going duck five times in row.Another history has been made by a australian player.No It is not 5 sixes in one over it is five ducks in five matches.

    That would be the case if Katich couldnt make it in coz Symonds was in good form, but it obviously isnt so here.

    Symmonds needs to be back at QLD to power up and give Katich a go, maybe they need Symmonds For the 3rd final if needed, Plus, I hope Katich is included ahead of Symmonds at this point, Symmonds can rest 3 matches or do some QLD Cricket, by then, he should be ready!


    Some players aren't given chances! Clarke for eg, Hayden out of form, make Clarke open with Gilly and make Haydos come out at no 5 or 6 for 1 match, if it goes well, that will be good

    Kaitch

    I don't think that Kaitch should be in the team in front of Symonds Because Symonds brings more to the one dayers in my mind because he can do most things Bat bowl field he might be down on form but Last year he had a great year with bat ball and fielding.Dropping him back to state won't help because he was doing well in it be4 the Vb series. Kaitch wouldn't be the 1st person to get a bad deal with the selectors Maher,M.Hussey, M.Love, M.Elliott,I.Harvey, S.Macgill are some others
