    Paine for Aus A would be a fair selection tbh given that he's probably not in Aus's best XI anyway

    From what I have read it is definitely happening.

    So who would you have instead?

    Wade or Carey. Bancroft at a pinch but probably not as a long-term option.

    Wade a isn't test class keeper and replacing Paine with Carey is essentially pointless since you'd be replacing one limited batsman but clean keeper with another less-experienced one.
    trundler isn't annoying at all. He's quality. -TJB
    Yea trundler is the new Bijed. Good addition. - Zorax

    This has been widely accepted fact for a while and it was very true back when Wade was first in the Test side but after watching plenty of both him and Paine keeping this year there really doesn't seem much difference. Paine has made big mistakes and Wade has hardly made many at all. I'd still rate Paine as a better keeper but not by as much as the "Wade bad keeper" meme implies.

    Paine has been far more reliable with the bat at test level than Wade though

    Despite Wade being clearly the better bat at FC level Paine averages 7 more from the same amount of tests


    Like a Hick-Hussain situation. Sometimes the less talented player can rise to the occasion better at the top level

    Paine is not the greatest batsman but his selection signalled that the selectors had decided to pick the best gloveman and were not putting as much emphasis on batting ability.

    Perhaps his test average flatters him a bit but an average of 35 is not terrible. With a reasonably strong batting tail behind him I think it is not a problem. If Cummins continues to perform with the bat then maybe he can swap with Paine.

    What needs to improve is the top 6 scoring runs. If Smith comes back somewhere near his normal level then that will be a huge boost.

    Carey is probably going to be a better batsman than Paine, he managed to score a century and average 75 in limited shield appearances this season.

    Yeah I just don't like Paine right now for some reason

    Next week I'll probably be arguing the opposite

    No one ever said anything about dropping Paine. It was only ever about bringing a keeper over for the A side. Carey seems to be Paine's anointed successor after Smith is allowed to captain again so we might as well give him the experience.

    Carey cannot be in the World Cup squad and the A tour squad.

    Paine has been fine. Don't fix what isn't broken. Smith needs to churn out some big tons and Australia will dominate again.

    Carey won’t get a go until Paine gives it away, personally. He’s a marginally worse stumper and no real improvement with the bat but as long as Paine’s there are skipper, the debate is academic.

    How Wade fits in, not sure. I don’t agree he should be picked as a bat in a world where Smith and Warner are in the line-up and he won’t get the gig as ‘keeper. You’d love to reward form but might just be bad luck for him at the moment.
