    Rashid Latif....a comedian

    "Paul Nixon is the best wicketkeeper in the world at the moment. His collection is absolutely superb up at the stumps and to the fast bowlers. It's a shame he's been given the opportunity so late because he has been one of the best for a while."

    Rashid Latif believes England have one clear positive from their CB Series nightmare ... well he did make 49 against New Zealand

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahah

    Well what's untrue about that?

    What's let Nixon down is his batting.

    But the bits about why he (apparently) is are not stupid at all.

    If wicketkeepers were picked purely for wicketkeeping, and Nixon got a run and kept going as he has so far, he could be called the best in The World.

    What's stupid is saying it after 7 games.

    And totally ignoring the fact that his batting's been a touch on the hopeless side.

    He's also made horrible mistakes in two of his seven games so far. His first game was a disaster, which could probably be related to nerves, and last night he dropped a catch because he started appealing before he'd caught the ball. Which, needless to say, is a cardinal sin for a keeper.

    He had a bit of a shocker during the initial overs of I think it was the first match against Australia but other than that I don't remember him doin anything special.

    But apparently, keep doing that and you'll soon be destined to be the world's premier glovesman.

    He said one of the best in the world. Not too hard to believe, IMO, and you've got to give the guy some slack after hes probably been watching Akmal for an extended period of time.

    Meh. He's no more than solid. Ish. Never really been considered of the first water over here. It was certainly his batting (mainly in the 20/20 stuff) that got him noticed & he's clearly short at the highest level. Read is superior in both departments for mine, but, as someone else observed, Nixon has the better debating skills.
