    I definitely don't think Haddin is a better wicket keeper than Ludeman. Not anymore anyway.

    Is Haddin better than Nevill? I mean champion Brad Haddin just axed Nevill from the state team. Or was Nevill dropped from state cricket due to Haddin's superior batting?

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Ofcourse Nevill is a better keeper than Haddin, not understanding your argument here.

    The latter.

    And no, it won't be because he's too busy playing internationals...
    TBF, I think the SA team balance would be improved by having Hughes keep wickets, at least in the short term. With McDonald not bowling, Botha's had to become an all-rounder batting at 6 to still provide 5 bowling options, and with the bat he isn't good enough to be there.

    Thinking more as a potential international keeper-batsman package deal, not exclusively with the gloves.

    Raphael keeps wicket in club cricket; I'd be looking at that before Hughes.

    I think they'll just stick with Ludeman for the season and then make an offseason signing if he tanks it with the bat again (which he will) though.

    Yeah, that wasn't the point of NUFAN's post though; he was specifically talking about keeping I think.

    Along your line of thinking I'd probably list another seven or so players, honestly.

    But Hughes should be a PONI with the gloves, for the ODI team. Haddin isn't going to be around forever and the rest of the country's glovemen are shunts in List A cricket.

    Yeah, can't see anyone challenging Ludeman. He has Berry good support within the SACA setup.

    Haha, I made a few jokes about how the management should consider Watlinging him but I don't think he's in any way keen on it. He did keep a bit in junior cricket but I don't think he's ever been a full-time wicket keeper for any serious cricket side before.

    This is what causes confusion. I'm not suggesting Ludeman as a package is a better option because I admit his batting isn't up to it. I was encouraged last season when he did produce a string of decent scores and when he started opening in the big bash I felt he had a bit to work with, you know develop some more but unfortunately runs seem hard to come by for Ludes. As a keeper whenever I see him, I think he looks very tidy and component. I do like Hartley but he seems to for whatever reason drop a simple catch (not that regularly) but a little too often.
