    I have only seen a little of Wade, and that little is already enough for him to be one of the more disliked cricketers in International cricket for me. Just such an @ss.

    So a Test average of 43 with two centuries in his first 9 Tests makes Wade ****? Bear in mind both of his tons came when Australia were deep in the **** and he was under pressure.

    Even if he was playing only as a batsman his Test career so far would still be very good.

    Dhoni has played 8 times as many Tests and when has he EVER scored a ton under pressure after coming in at 5 down for not many?

    Fair enough Wade's been patchy with the gloves but he's still very young (he's got a decade of cricket left in him) so give him time and his keeping will improve markedly.

    Gilly wasn't perfect with the gloves either early in his career but became a very good gloveman.

    I think Dhoni is **** with the gloves too and shouldn't be keeping in test cricket.

    Wade's worth keeping (pun; sorry) and we can afford to wait to see if he can improve his glove work to a passable standard. I mean he aint Wayne Phillips bad and you'd think he stands a good chance of surpassing Brad Haddin who isn't much chop with the gloves and his nearest competitor.

    Wade is one of the worst glovemen I've seen, but Australia's problems at the moment are about scoring runs, not taking wickets.

    Dominant from SA again. They're just so damn good in their favoured conditions.

    Those slip catches are hilarious. With those angled bats it looks like catching practice.

    Since when do you learn to keep at test level?

    I hate Haddin, he is a cock. But he's a better glove man than Wade. I'm a Victorian too!

    He throws gloves at the ball and gives away penalty runs, for one.

    Wade would have thrown his keeping gloves at the ball and missed mind you, another win for Haddin.

    Lol at this last pair. So frustrating especially since both are terrible batsmen.
