Australian wicketkeepers

Gone are the days when Australia used to have a wicketkeeper with a first name straight from The Bible and two-thirds of the last name straight from the crucifix.

Now their first choice behind the stumps has a surname that sounds like HAD IN (and initials BJ, no less); the reserve 'keeper has a surname that sounds like PAIN; and the second reserve has one that sounds like RAUNCHY.

No wonder they aren't the team they used to be.
