    I think Prior is the man for test matches although I do prefer to see James Foster given another shot be England.

    Kieswetter is a good ODI / T20 option for England, but unless his keeping improves he will not be an England Test match Wicketkeeper.

    Thing is, he is already a good keeper. The "experts" who say this have only seen him on England duty and many only since the T20 World Cup. I have watched Kieswetter many times at Taunton in 4 and 1 day cricket and every time his keeping has been good, little if no mistakes. He's the best batsman-keeper England have and I'm not being biased.

    I dont agree there.

    Ive seen him keep as well and he would not do the job at the moment for England. He makes many errors, his glove position is his weakness. I do think he will eventually be England test keeper but at this moment in time he is not.

    At the moment Somerset have been playing him and another keeper, Jos Buttler with the keeping duties being shared. Buttler is marginally the better keeper but CRaig is the better batsmen by far. So if and when Craig becomes part of Englands future we have a good replacement.

    Butler is who David Lloyd is raving about when he talks about wicket keepers.

    And it gives him an excuse to make that "I hate you Butler joke" when he plays.

    I'd also like to see Foster being given another chance but it's hard to see that happening as keeping ability isn't the priority for the selectors. Kieswetter was always going to get a chance with these ODIs. I can't see them making too many changes on who they used in the Caribbean despite the longer format. I'm not sure what Bell is doing there though.

    I don't rate Bell at all ... outside of Collingwood who would you go with?

    I don't think Bopara is good enough. I still Rob Key is the man the selectors should go with but he has not scored the runs like has in previous seasons.
