    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.
    HAHAHA.

    BTW, if Australia had really been interested in winning the Amsterdam Tri Series, they'd have included Seccombe. He's been playing in the Dutch domestic league this season. He knows conditions and the grounds like no other.

    I've edited your post to what it should be. Because there are some of us here that don't think Haddin is the best of anything...

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I have to agree that Haddin has got a fairly easy ride into the squad. IMO, he's bloody lucky that Nathan Pilon has left NSW because I reckon he should have had his spot in the NSW side last year. Ryan Campbell is having groin surgery, so he is out of the frame. That, realistically, leaves Haddin, Seccombe and Manou for the gig, and I suppose that Haddin's allegedly superior batting gives him the place.

    That's probably the case. When was the last time Haddin reached double figures?

    how is it possible that anyone behind Haddin is better, he has made centuries at List A level, basically no one he is competing with has!
    as far as i know, most people agree with me saying hes the best of a bad bunch, so i wont be using IMO

    Secombe had his best season by far with the bat this year. Hartley got a century on debut. Manou got several 50s and opened a few times for South Australia. They both have done tons more than Haddin.

    ok take Seccombe out of it, we know he wont be picked in an Aus 1d side, Hartley has barley played and is his states 2nd choice keeper, Manou im not convinced on, he had anumber of poor seasons and played a couple of decent innings, Haddin has scored centuries and peformed to a reasonable standard in the chances hes had...

    Agreed.
    I have often wondered who Gilchrist's successor would be - I hope it is not Haddin.

    hopefully we wont need one yet, hartley again is the obvious choice, but im giving my full backing to tasmania's second 11 keeper David Dawson, he will take the cricketing world by storm if given a chance
