    Who will play their last test during the Australian Ashes series?

    I remember this thread being made for the previous series. Now to discuss who will retire or be moved on during/after this series.

    For me the likely ones are;

    Chris Rogers- I imagine the selectors will want to move him on at the end of the series to be replaced long-term with Hughes. Hopefully they will have the decency to let him know beforehand so he can retire on his own accord. That being said, he seems like the kind of guy who would be happy to leave on top after (hopefully) an Ashes victory rather than get dropped on form after some relatively insignificant series.

    Brad Haddin- Same as Rogers. Still better that Wade and Paine though so will hopefully stick around.

    George Bailey- I assume he'll hold his place until the end of the series, but if he fails to get some big scores I can see him getting permanently dumped for Hughes, Khawaja, North or whoever else is tearing up the domestic scene.

    Ryan Harris- Same as Rogers/Haddin, but less likely. Somebody will eventually have to make way for Patto/Starc/Cummins though.

    Jonathan Trott- Fingers crossed he can make a full recovery and play international cricket again. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Chris Tremlett- Not sure if there are any good quicks coming though in CC. But I could imagine him being overtaken and never heard of at test level again.

    Rhino will definitely stay on, his body allowing. Haddin has stated his intention to play till the World Cup and then go from there, so I can't see him throwing in the towel just yet.

    Rogers is an interesting one given that he was selected purely to score runs in England and if you were going to pick any out of the current team to retire, it would be him, but given how long it took him to get a proper shot at this level, I can't see him letting go that easily. Think the squad for whatever our next tour is will be very similar to what it is now.

    Think Stokes's time will come again, but it won't be batting at six.

    Tremmers is a fair shout. In fact, if he misses out for the WACA XI he might already have had his swansong.

    One not mentioned so far is Carberry. Unless he really churns out some daddies from now on in I can see the selectors going for a younger man for the early English tests. Guy rising into his mid-thirties hasn't been picked on potential.

    Monty perhaps? Might get a go at Sydney but unlikely to be picked for the home Tests - even if Swann were dropped/crocked they could well go with Tredwell as a like-for-like. Don't know if we're touring in Asia at all next winter though.

    Carberry yeah, hard to see what he brings that Compton didn't. Guy had earned a chance though IMO.

    Haddin has made scores of 94, 53 and 118 in the three innings he's played. And keeping well. I think he can stay on form. Just behind MJ for man of the series after 2 tests.

    Rogers hasn't been brilliant but he made a 72 in the 2nd test and he's doing the job of blunting the new ball, which is making life easier for the middle order (although he only made 16 in the 2nd test, he faced 80 balls).

    I seriously don't want to see Khawaja, Hughes or North anywhere near this team anytime soon.

    I really liked the look of Carberry, hope he continues to play.

    Shane Watson hopefully. He is mediocre at best and an absolute pea heart to boot.

    Ryan Harris is the second best bowler in the world. No way will this be his last series, body allowing.

    Harris to play on till his body gives out which hopefully is long enough to groom one of the young ones.

    Doug the mug. Gets 1 more Test in Melb or Syd, doesn't quite set the house on fire, and is overtaken by the young guns for the following tour to SA.

    Also possibly KP, in "shock" retirement/defection to IPL/T20 next year.
