Andrew, not sure if Haddin has got the temperement yet. In recent tests, he seems to only bat in 4th gear and got himself out on too many occassions.

I agree with Michael Holding that the keepers role is to take the catches and make the stumpings (95% of the time), I agree with Alec Stewart that the best keeper is Mark Boucher, both as a package the best is Dhoni, but give Brad Haddin another 12 mths and he will show the cricket world, he is as a good batsmen as Gilchrist

Liked Holdings comments on what he wanted from a keeper. Stewart is useless and seems to hung up on the past and probably some bias.

Hard to agree with Stewart's view that Boucher is the best wicky/bat around in world cricket. As a package (bat + keeping), both Sanga and Dhoni are def. better..and more valuable to their team.
