    Imo in this exercise, people should be choosing their best wkeeper on the basis of their keeping skill, rather than keeping + batting.

    Same reason: Australia been far too good for far too long and every name picked is more than good enough to be there. It just irks people that there are more Aussies than non-Aussies...which is just stupid to me. Best is best is best. If they were Pakistani and had the same story/record I'd name them.
