    I don't mind Kruger - he isn't Ian Smith with the gloves but he is an upgrade on Reece Young purely on glove work.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    this. A good keeper's range extends out to just in front of first slip. No first slip should be taking catches on their inside shoulder.

    It's happened so many times in the past few months.

    In the West Indies Taylor wouldn't go for them, expecting the keeper to take them as is the norm. Now he's moved closer in and he's still expected to take the ones moving in towards the keeper. It's cost him his confidence as a slip fielder and also puts off the rest of the cordon.

    I'm a Kruger fan - saved us (CD cap on) numerous times with the bat, is compact and always in for a scrap. He can also take some great catches - but with our keeping depth he needs to show something more than 30s and ducks very soon.

    I love how much Steve hates him though. Will be a sad day for CW if Kruger gets dropped.

    true.

    I find excuses for players I like.
    Maybe a move to mid-on is in order.

    Whatever the answer is, they need to ****ing sort it out.

    Imagine if we'd dropped one of those catches in Hobart.

    Nah used to be a gun, but his **** fielding always used to happen when he struggled with the bat. He just scored a ton and it's still there.

    I have no idea what magnum opus means...!

    Understand you wouldn't have seen a lot of Youngy, Hurricane, but he's an infinity better gloveman than Kruger. He's generally been accepted as being the best gloveman on the domestic scene - at least before Hopkins got them ahead of him this season. If he'd known McGlashan was going to retire before the contracts came out, he'd have gone to ND.

    And Hendrix is right, it's happened far too often. Not being funny but genetically being a midget is a big factor.

    Pain in the ass lil toad.

    He dropped plenty of catches when he first started playing internationals as well.

    I havn't seen him in domestic at all. He came into the bcs with a stellar reputation as being an outstanding glovesman and the best in the country but he didn't live up to it in tests. It seemed like he was afraid of making a mistake and often wouldn't dive for it and it would go between him and first slip down to the boundary for four runs. He did take one stunning catch against Zimbos to help win the test that endeared himself to me for a while but that soon wore off.

    Maybe it was just nerves.

    Yeah, purely nerves. Hesson was still talking about him as an option at the start of his reign. John Wright didn't like the earring and the tatts, wasn't prepared to give him a better go and he's now done for.

    Cheers for that.

    Different question -

    Where would you recommend bowling to man with split webbing in his bottom hand Steve - what shots will he not be able to control if any?

    I'm sorry, but I really struggle to believe this. Maybe Reece Young feels that way, but I can't believe that John Wright let something so superficial influence his decision making.

    That's plumb.
