    Elliot should replace Langer

    The victorian opener is in good form and i reckon should replace Langer. What do you reckon.

    I reckon NO :P

    He had his chance , played reasonably but well below his potential , the team is already old so they cant afford to replace one 32 year old with another.

    Agree with David 100%


    If there was to be a replacement for Langer im pretty sure it would be Mike Hussey...

    Yes Elliott is in good form but I don't think they'd drop Langer after two bad Tests, particularly since Elliott has shown that even if his FC form is supreme, he still manages to find a way to bugger it all up when called up for Australia. And if there's anything that Langer has shown over the years, it's that his FC and/or early season form means nothing; he'll come good again. He's obviously hitting the ball well but just getting out once he hits 20 or 30. When he pulls his head in a bit (like I'm sure he will), he'll bag a ton and people will forget about his Tests against Zim.

    I was doing a univeristy subject with Martin Love's ex-girlfriend and she said "that the Australian team do not like Matthew Elliot's attitude"

    Apparently Matthew Elliot is really sh**y when he gets out and won't talk to anyone for the rest of the day and is not liked by most of the players, especially Steve Waugh, the current Australian captain. So I think Matthew Elliot's chances of making the Australian team are pretty slim.

    Anyway...how can Australia even think of dropping one of the members of its best ever opening partnerships just because he's had two bad test matches?

    I'm with Andre, I really want what ever you are smoking!

    No, Langer has been in terrific form these past few seasons. To question Langers place after just two tests is a little harsh.

    Matthew Elliot has been in good form, but I feel that he had his chance and he would now be behind people like Simon Katich, Mike Hussey etc. in the selectors minds.

    He was shy? Can't think of a word (of the expletive variety (which I don't condone :P)) that fits those stars you've wrote in.

    As everyone(?) knows, Langer's Test form always goes in fits-and-starts. And I mean big ones. One series or summer averaging 100, next barely 30. How many times has it happened.
    As for calling this combination Australia's best-ever; what a joke IMO. The above who is about the most inconsistent player ever, and one massive flat-track bully.
    Comparisons with Barnes and Morris and Morris and Hassett are a touch on the premature side. Not to mention Woodfull and Ponsford (so good Richardson and Fingleton were both kept out of the side).
    Often the recent batsmen receive the bias and IMO it should be very much the other way around.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Score one for the home team!

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
