    Brad Haddin

    C'mon now how many of ya'll also believe that there was someone else who could do a better job than what haddin has done since backing up adam gilchrist.

    he would nealry be the worst batsmen in our squads list i believe his average is under 20 and highest score of like 38. Now honestly were is campbell!

    I think Jimmy Maher should be there instead.

    His battng is obviously good enough, and Ive seen him keep, and its not that bad. His keeping is far better than Dravids. Ide say it would be just below Geraint Jones' kepping.

    I think he would be a perfect replacement for Gilchrist in ODIs.

    Campbell is injured and having surgery or something. You are definately correct about Haddin, he is crap! Maher, Secombe, Manou, Clingellefer are all better options than Haddin.

    Trouble is you bag the Aussie selectors and then haddin will score a ton and 5 stumpings of a fast bowler.

    Maher would have probably been the best option I guess, Haddin's average is higher than the other 3 in first-class cricket so.........I presume they were looking for someone who bats in the Gilchrist-style, but would have probably preferred the same total, not just a similar strike rate for 10 or so runs!

    Gilchrist is a once in a lifetime player, for someone to bat and keep like he does is special so the replacements are bound to be much inferior but yes i agree Haddin doesn't look very good. Is he naturally an opener or has he been forced to bat there?

    I think he's opened in one-day cricket at least a few times for NSW, but Maher would probably be the better choice by quite a long way.

    IMO James Maher is not an ODI standard player.
    Nonetheless it seems incredibly odd when proven ODI openers such as Martyn and Lehmann bat at four and five while someone whose occasionally opened for his state faces the new-ball in an ODI.
    Whether or not Gilchrist is a once-in-a-lifetime player (an ODI average of 35 is not exceptional by any standards, just very good when coupled with his strike-rate) it doesn't change the fact that no-one who's recently replaced him has looked like an ODI-standard batsman, let alone an exceptional one.

    Lehmann has opened 4 times in ODI's, Martyn 7 times.

    Please tell on what basis that makes them proven?

    If they were that proven at it, how come they so rarely do it?

    Because between 1998 and 2002 Mark Waugh and Gilchrist were the first-choice opening pair and they only did it on occasions of rest.
    And from 2002 onwards rarely have any combinations outside Gilchrist and Hayden been seen.

    have a look at there records when they have opened though !!

    And on Haddin he is a wasted talent he was a much better batsman 2 or 3 years ago when he looked like he could have developed into a real class player.

    He was an awsome striker of the ball mostly with lofted drives but his pull's were great as well.

    He seems to have gone backwards ever since he toned his game down and stoped opeing in OD game's for NSW.
