Wasn’t my reply respectful? I am disagreeing with a post it shouldn’t matter who makes it ?

wasn't talking about your last reply, too many replies from more than just you are unnecessarily aggressive in tone

I'd rather have my keeper than this one, but again it's personal preference.
Just an observstion.
Your guy has a 25 ave and has 134 dismissals from 98 games.Div 1. 1.4 a game.
Clouston has 55 ave 205 from 99. Div 1 2.a game.
Berrington ( who isnt great but has two in game talents) 29 ave and 191 from 121. 1.5 a game.
Not much between your and Berrington ( who I dont rate) but I hope that his talents can keep him at the crease a bit longer.

I do look at these things from time to time. Obviously you could drill down imto thise numbers more, the make up of the attack, pitch types etc.

I need to balance as much of this but basically your fella having spect batting wont cut it esp now we are seeing legendary summary bowlers coming at them in unfriendly batting conditions.
That's true, there's no doubt Clouston is a far better batsman than my guy, however it's slightly skewed by the fact he's also an opener.

Berrington is also a better batsman, but not a better keeper, again that depends how you play them and what you're looking for. My guy has World Class Keeping and safe hands, so should seriously outperform as a keeper.

I completely take your point though, given you're looking for a serious batsman as well a wicket keeper then Berrington is probably the better player for you. For me, it's a different view, and that's why I'd rather have him.

However, I completely respect your choices, was just giving a backup option if you need it :)
much appreciated
Scotland Manager.

Thanks Ronnie,

The word on the street is that the Scottish Cricket Association are currently sourcing an artist to work on a bronze statue of myself to stand at Bannockburn but I think one of our captain lifting the cup may be more intimidating to visiting teams than the manager sitting with an iPad!

Thanks for your support.
