    Best Bet: Sachin?

    Its a high chance he might even play due to his dreaded tennis elbow condition.

    Sad, but so true.

    Sehwag has dropped into the weak link section. Yuvraj too.

    Weak link: McCullum (don't drop this one!), McMillan and especially Mills
    McCullum? Maybe I'm biased because I've played with the guy back in his Dunedin days, but he is one of our best floating batsman. His glovework is still a little untidy, but he is by no means the worst keeper at the tournament.

    Sorry...didn't know that.

    I have seen him mess up a few chances, and just drop the ball when not in play. Doesn't look as active as Parore or Nevin. That drop of Dravid was a big mistake in the World Cup. You cannot get away by dropping world class players like him. Or missing a stumping of Gilchrist- that's one of Sangakkara's biggest bloopers. Or getting the wicket of Sachin on a no-ball- he'll strike back hard.

    Doesn't look as active as Nevin? Not sure how much international cricket you have seen Nevin play, but he is positively awful behind the stumps. McCullum is obviously not in the class of Parore, but I predict he will tidy it up and be our glovesman for the next ten years.

    How is Lou Vincent's glovework? Sometimes, he does the job of wicketkeeper. He's also one of the better batsmen in the side, although one who rarely gets a big score.

    His golvework is nothing flash. He's much better value in the field.

    Cairns is best bet and McMillan is weak link? I think McMillan's been doing much better than Cairns recently, hasn't he?
