    I did 3 'proper' wicket-keepers (well, 2 and Gilchrist). Not home and away - in total.

    Alan Knott : 413 byes, 45759 runs - 0.91%
    Bob Taylor : 287 byes, 25847 runs - 1.11%
    Churchy : 339 byes, 24241 runs - 1.40%

    Considering that Adam Gilchrist has Brett to contend with, that's pretty commendable for long-term career stats, I reckon.

    I say give Patel a go.

    I actually think he has the potential to become one of the best keeper-batsmen in the world.

    A lot of people say he doesn't have an agressive streak to his batting -- but I saw him opening the batting for India at the 2002 Junior World Cup in New Zealand and he was smashing them.
    He was quite agressive on last years A tour to South Africa so perhaps he needs some time to develop the confidence to play his shots at senior level.

    As for the second keeper, watch out for Dinesh Karthik -- I think he'll be one of the stars at the forthcoming youth world cup and I expect
    he'll force his way into the senior squad soon.

    Re: Mongia, Mongia's not in the squad not because of his age.
    THe word is that he doesn't exactly see eye to eye with players
    like Ganguly, Dravid and Tendulkar who've questioned his team commitment.

    U19s: India v West Indies - Patel made 47 off 34 opening (7x4, 1x6)

    And a lot more fast (if occasionally short-lived scoring, no other sixes, though) - still it disproves "he cant even score runs quickly while batting and cant even hit a 6".

    Looks to me like the resounding poll result has shut him up!
    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!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

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

    For commitment see his 150odd when asked to open against Australia if I remember correctly...

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    I thought Ratra was better than Gilchrist

    Technically very sound. I cant find too many faults and he has truckloads of potential.

    Only fault he tends to stand up a little early, but Rod Marsh and Ian Healy made plenty of fumbles early on in their career.

    When Kumble bowled Gilchrist on 43, Patel had missed a stumping on 14, the Indian players when their hudle formed all patted him on the back. That will help his confidence greatly.

    His batting is soliod and he can hang in there.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    parthiv sucks. he misses atleast 2 stumping chances in a match. he just missed gilchrist's stumping chance. had that happened, aus would have been out for less than 160.

    parthiv isnt a good batsman either.

    also neil, about that 6 against the wi u-19, he would have hit it into the shortest boundary of the ground. also he would have scored quickly only due to poor windian fielding.
