Carey will be fine and I’m all for giving him a chance, just think it’s interesting that his catching ability has always been questioned and he’s dropped a few this series. I’m a big Josh Inglis fan so may be a little biased.

Aus are up 3-0 which is great but there was a great chance for 4-0. Weather and light made the task much more difficult and yet they still managed to take 9. Just would have been nice to get the win and fully exorcise the demons from the India series!

That’s fair enough, but most of the drops were ones that the large majority of test level keepers are expected to take. I’m not saying he doesn’t deserves a good run at the keeper spot, just that his catching ability has always been questioned and these drops indicate the doubters might have had a point.

Green’s batting this series has been a little bit of a letdown so far but you are right, that second innings was excellent by him and will hopefully mean he can push on and continue batting well the rest of the way. Carey has always been known as a run scoring keeper so to see him put together a great knock gives me a lot of faith in him to continue scoring runs down the order and when Australia are in trouble!

Definitely, he never looked focussed or remotely settled at the crease. Especially with Broad and Anderson probably back in on the swinging pitch, Smith will need to perform!
