It will be interesting when does pull the plug. I think when he does Haddin will probably get the nod in ODIs while Hartley could very well get the gloves in Test cricket.

or maybe Haddin could get the nod in test as well, the next few seasons with in Hartley/Ronchi's development are going to be important.Originally Posted by Craig
Good God - 85 Tests in less than seven years. Says it all really. At the time of the Bangladesh tour I wanted to see Haddin get a couple of Tests, but Australia would almost certainly have lost the first Test without him.
Absolute bloody legend as far as I'm concerned. 85 consecutive tests and 242 ODI's through his career, wearing the gloves every single game he has played at international level. My favourite player and I hope he continues to play as long as he is passionate about his cricket.

yeah i remember seeing something written by i think Warne saying that Gilchrist without gloves was an awful fielder.

He has never played as a specialist batsman when Haddin has worn the gloves, not sure if he ever got a game as a batsman if Healy was the keeper.
Gilchrist and Haddin could have worked well under the infamous super-sub.
Too bad it got scrapped, it had potential.
Keeping wise, Hartley is very good, IIRC he set a record for my longest time with conceded a bye (which was a fair bit), and I don't think Ronchi is first choice yet.Originally Posted by aussie
he effected one very good run out from mid on against RSA during the 97 tour of RSA by Australia during the ODIs. That was the series where he was played as a specialist bat, since Taylor (the captain) was dropped from the ODI side.Originally Posted by age_master
