man, he really has some thinking to do about his batting, what is he doing
once again wafting outside off stump, a get out shot, time and again during
the ashes he committed this sin, when is he going to learn? all teams just
go round the wicket and get him out easily. Nel is shit too, even he got him
out.

I think it's CA that's to blame he's needs a good rest and they wont give
him one, I hope they play another WK for the ODI's coming, Haddin would be
the first in line for One dayers.  He (Gilly) can go home forget about
cricket for the rest of the summer and play with his kids, come back fresh
and see if that helps.

And if Haddin (or whoever replaces Gilly) scores heaps of runs and is
tidy behind the stumps...? What then?

Simple keep Gilly in the Test and keep Haddin for ODI's.

I reckon we have seen the best of Gilchrist with the bat. I think it
would be wrong to sack him before the end of the home series, but
really, if he doesn't bob up, it's time to give him a spell, perhaps
permanently.

It's a damn shame because at or near the top of his game, there's
nobody I'd rather watch. All good things come to an end though and I
think the dual role of keeping and batting (and doing the ODIs as well)
has finally taken its toll.

fully agree, i think he should give the odi game away, just do tests, he's
my favorite player, i have loved his batting. Still , he's had a good year
average wise, not bad at all for a normal no 7. His NZ tour was great, the
ton v Pak was sensational. Still, thats a long time ago now i suppose. he's
playing dumb cricket, he hasnt tightened up his game at all since the ashes.

Fair enough. Certainly rejuvenated Warne (along with a year off).
I dont know much about other WK options for Aus.  Would be interested
to hear the Aussie fans thoughts on Gilly's replacements for both ODI
and Tests.  If he goes in ODIs, who opens the innings in his place?

Snow will fall in Brisbane during a Test match before that
hypothetical would occur.

Haddin may score runs though.

I'd say Haddin for ODI and Crosthwaite for Tests, young keepere from
Victoria

It was a real nothing shot, I think he was trying to guide it through slips
but he just hit it straight to gully.

Well I was at the ground today and IMHO Nel was deceptively good even
before he got the 4 wickets.

He should retire from odious cricket which is up to him not CA.

Crosthwaite isn't ready, Hartley is a better option in the immediate
future.

For mine, Gilchrist is still a fair way short of running out of
credits. His keeping has seemed ok, and until a keeper emerges who is
significantly superior, I think Clang is safe. Particularly since
Australia is going to need to *** some fast bowlers very soon. You
don't want to tip the experience balance too suddenly.

Great problem to have.  Play Gilchrist as pure bat in ODIs then.

Agreed I didn't mean it for now was looking down the track, I wouldn't like
to see Gilly out of the test side for a couple of years yet.
