Ronchi is very good. But in Haddin you have a keeper batsman who will most likely average 10 more than Healy or Marsh did, and be just as good with the gloves. Haddin is fit, and can play for 6, maybe 7 years. The selectors can not pass that up.

I will make a big statement. Haddin is the second best keeper/batsman ever, even with not having played a test. Its a dam shame he is coming after Gilly, because he will never live up to that. But had Haddin come after Healy or Marsh, he would go down as a great.

Good point, got me there

Andy Flower is a bit forgotton and under rated. But how about Sangakara, what an impressive record

Haddin will make it for sure. Rochni is 26yo and Haddin does everything better than Rochni. Cricket Australia have invested in Haddin.
