    I watched him in a couple of games and he was pretty terrible with the gloves.

    He has improved in all areas especially his batting. His glovework is up to standard, besides who would you select ahead of him?

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    thats my point, i dont think Haddin is all that great, but quite simply the guys behind him arent up to scratch to play one day international cricket....

    No stereotyping there then?

    I guess Liam and you will be attending the series with those incentives?

    There is no way Haddin is a better keeper/batsman than Campbell. Christ! Manou would be a better selection than Haddin. Once again this is a case of the selectors reluctance to look outside N.S.W.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Manou lol, hes got nothing, im not confident enough with campbells keeping, seccombe doesnt score fast enough, clingleffer is just rank and that leaves Haddin as a best of the rest.

    maybe this Chirs Hartley bloke will be good in a few years....

    Chris Hartley is ready now.

    Fair enough Secombe doesn't score fast enough, but at least he scores.

    This forum clearly lacks a Dutchman.

    Well, no more.

    I'm actually going to the Amsterdam Tri Series matches. Probably not on my bicycle, though, and definitely not with a joint. People'd think I'm a tourist.

    Doesnt really need to score terribly fast anyway, someone else can fill the openers role.
    I dunno, perhaps Im being a bit harsh on Haddin, but I definately agree with Mr Wright in saying Campbell is miles infront of Haddin 'keeping wise, and batting wise. Although, I think hes actually undergone surgery so he's probably out. I just dont think Haddin is much good with the gloves, thats all. If they were picking him as a batsman, I wouldnt care much one way or the other.

    You said he would be ready in a few years, hell he's ready now. Only thing is Secombe will stay on for a few years yet, or maybe he will be unselfish and step aside. However, while Secombe still has a realistic (while ever so slight) chance of making the Australian side, he will stay on.

    But Hartley is definitely Australia's next long term option as national keeper.
