    Who replaces Gilchrist

    When Adam hangs up the gloves, presumably in the next couple of years, who is the heir apparent? Haddin seems to be the designated back up at the moment, but will that still be the case when it comes time to select a long term replacement?

    Hartley seems the heir apparent. Haddin however would do a great job, and they have picked older players recently. If they pick look long term though it will be Hartley.

    Haddin deserves it, he has been the second choice keeper for a while now. I would say that Hartley will be the long term option.

    He's retired, so yes. Hartley is the keeper for Queensland now.

    The main questionmark for Hartley is obviously he's batting. He looks like a solid batsman, but he's obviously not in the Gilchrist class, and probably not in the Haddin class either. If Gilchrist was to retire at the end of the World Cup, and Hartley doesn't set the world alight with the bat next Pura Cup season, you'd think Haddin would get the job.

    He's never done anything of note in domestic cricket. Once he's a regular for WA in both forms and is scoring some runs, he'll get looked at, but for now it's between Haddin and Hartley and there's a few others ahead of Ronchi too.

    If they had a choice between a mediocre batsman and a great wicketkeeper, or the other way around, a standard keeper but a good batsman, which one would they choose? I think that we have become so used to Gilchrist, that it would have to be the latter. But what if it means vital wickets are not taken? Man, we really have taken Gilly for granted and his greatness will truley be seen only after he retires.

    Tom Cooper will learn to keep. The new Gilchrist is old hat now. Everyone will want the new GoJo.

    I agree about Gilly, but Australia will definitely take the good batsman. If it was a choice between Hartley averaging 30, and Ronchi averaging 50, they'd go for Ronchi every time. Gilchrist is a rare (in fact, almost unique) breed in that he is both a world class keeper and a world class batsman, and has through most of his career been among the best in the world in both forms. It will probably be a long time before we see that again.
