    One name to throw into the hat is David Dawson from Tassie, the best bat out of the all the keepers IMO.

    really?, i have always felt at least this season it was Hartley, because i have seen more consistent scores from him.

    Dawson is not a regular keeper for Tasmania. He would have to be their first choice to be considered.

    By the time 2007 comes around, the young guys will have another season or two under their belts so a better decision can be made. At the moment if Gilly broke down and had to be replaced, Haddin would be chosen. Out of the young guns, Hartley is ahead of the rest. He has scored plenty of runs and has taken some brilliant catches. Crosthwaite has not shown anything with the bat and Ronchi has not played a FC game for WA this season, though that will change with Campbell retiring. Don't discount Manou. he is a good attacking batsman, solid keeper and has shown some leadership abilities while captaining SA.

    Considering he sometimes plays as a specialist batsman with Paine/Clingleffer in the side as well, I'd assume his keeping isnt quite up to the mark....

    Personally, I was very impressed with Haddin's glovework in the ODI's he played recently. I knew he could bat but I didn't know his keeping was that good.

    Furthermore, have any of the keepers around Australia made any runs this season? Off the top of my head I don't think any of them have.

    Whoever replaces Gilchrist is going to be under alot of pressure, thats for sure. Australian fans will be expecting the next guy to pick up where Gilchrist left off...and that will be difficult, because guys like Gilchrist don't come along every day.

    Crosthwaite hasn't shown NOTHING with the bat. He has quite a few handy scores. He needs to bat higher tho he doesn't get decent chances to score.

    Clingleffer probably the best keeper in Australia outside Gilly and i don't know why Paine keeps infront of him. Dawson a decent keeper and his keeping up the 1st Class, but Hartley got the jump over the rest.

    Looking at the FC stats this season, Crosthwaite has worst record so it is easy to say he has shown not much with the bat.

    FYI

    Haddin 189 at 47
    Hartley 314 at 39
    Manou 268 at 38
    Clingeleffer 316 at 35
    Campbell 392 at 33
    Crosthwaite 161 at 20

    There have been a few matches he hasn't batted aswell (sometimes 1 innings, sometimes both), he's simply batting way too low.

    Doing alright in ODD's.

    Hartley is the best keeper in the country and is more than handy with the bat, obviously he would be my choice. I agree with Jason though, Manou shouldn't be discounted either, he has shown plenty.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    yea thats true Manou's batting seems to have been improving this season if he can keep improving in the next couple of years he could well & be a candidate, but i stll do get the feeling that Hartley will get the nod ahead of him.

    Unless Hartley gets a long term injury or starts dropping catches everywhere ar averages single figures with the bat he will be Australia's next long term keeper considering he was chosen as Haddin's replacement on the 'A' tour when at the time he wasn't even Qld's first choice keeper.
