    yeah fair enough mate, agree with what you have said there, although the fact that keeping ability alone is being more and more overlooked by the people in high positions for me is a cause for concern.

    It is even filtering into test cricket now. Otherwise Jones and Dhoni would have never played over Read and Kaarthick.

    i can understand why jones got a chance ahead of read, but i would say that either jones is persisted with (as hes not dreadful, just poor) or read returns, trying prior would be a step in the right direction, but as far as im concerned karthik should never have been dropped from the test side, his ability keeping and batting in terms of test standard is far superior to dhonis, a sad state of affairs really, and too many people ttrying to emulate the success of gilchrist.

    I remember the success of Jayasuriya having a similar effect on all teams. Heck, even a minorly succesful strategy like that of Symcox or Klusener at 3 as pinch hitters made all teams look for one. I can never forget the day Kumble came out as India's pinch hitter. Felt India had hit a new low then. Thank God for Pathan.
