    Good to hear. His chances of playing another Test have probably gone, but you never know these things.

    One of the most poorly-treated players of recent times.

    Would love to see him play for Australia again. Yeah, I'm in the minority, but I love watching him bat.

    Might as well use him next test. I don't really rate the likes of Jacques.

    Don't especially love watching him bat, but have always liked waking-up and finding-out he's scored runs.

    I do!

    Anyway - Jacques is pretty well an opener, Katich a middle-order man. Hodge is ahead of him there.

    I mean, I'd happily put Hussey opening and have specialist middle-order bats in the middle-order, but most seem to favour leaving the opener (Hussey) there.

    These slow and steady type openers are really useful. Just look at the likes of Cook and Richardson.

    He's a middle order player? I always thought he was an opener.....Damn.

    Katich is a middle-order batsman, though. But yes, runs are runs regardless of how quick they come.

    Well he has opened in ODIs I suppose... but that was only ever some bright-spark trying to manufacture it.

    Don't think we ever found-out for certain who was responsible, really - could have been any of the selection committee.

    Only chance of that happening is surely Watson having a gun start to the season.

    Think Watson's a shoo-in almost regardless, ie unless he scores barely a run at the start of the season. Failing that, Symonds would probably get picked.

    At least, that's what seems to be the general consensus amongst the educated Aussies on this board.

    I would have completely forgotten katich had i not seen this thread. how is his form in domestic cricket in australia.....i rated him very highly when he was almost a regular member of the aussie team.
    Though very slim chances of making it back to the team ....but you never know with so many players in their mid thirties
