    Australian Team in 8 years

    Is there a shortage of quality young players to fill the shoes of Ponting, Gilchrist, McGrath and Warne? Gilchrist seems covered with Ronchi, Crosthwaite (spelling) and Dawson. White will end up the main spinner with Hauritz filling the "MacGill" role. I'm not sure whether Shaun Tait will last. I'm sure there will be a 15 year old now who will be in the team.

    Inness
    Dighton? How old is Dighton?
    Ferguson
    Clarke
    Watson
    Ervine
    Ronchi
    White
    Cleary
    Bracken
    Tait

    I don't think Ervine will ever play for Australia. And Cleary probably won't either.

    And also you cant really say who will be in the team in 8 years time, in that time we might have 3 Michale CLarkes come in, guys we've never heard of before make the team. For example, I would put in the U-19 Keeper and captain of QLD in the Australian team in 8 years when hes 26. But all you guys dont know him, so Its hard to speculate about such things...

    I think 8 years is too far to look ahead.

    Most of the players in the team then are mid-low 20's now, and still developing.

    I know it's too long but i'm more just looking to who could be future Australian stars and it's interesting to name the team in 8 years wouldn't you agree? Obviously none of us will get it right because lets have a shot

    So really you're asking who of the young guys now will be regular, senior players for Australia in 8 years time. If you are, then Clarke will definetly.

    There's probably a 12-year-old kid somewhere in Sydney who will be 20 in eight years time, and all the media will be screaming for him to be selected every time he scores a run... bit of a pointless exercise, really

    Yeh, but they're only selections based on who's around now.

    Michael Dighton (TAS)
    Marcus North (WA)
    Phil Jaques (NSW)
    Michael Clarke (NSW) (C)
    David Hussey (VIC)
    Adam Crosthwaite (VIC) (WK)
    Adam Voges (WA)
    Shane Watson (QLD)
    Cameron White (VIC) (VC)
    Shaun Tait (SA)
    Adam Griffith (TAS)

    12th: Nathan Hauritz (QLD)

    Dave Hussey might still be around. I think he's 26 now... I have a feeling he'll be one of those that's around forever.

    Don't think that much of Voges, I was impressed with his century but you can't back someone only on North Sydney Oval

    Apart from Voges' century he has done absolutely squat.

    In grade it is a different case, last check he averaged near on 60 for the season, and mid 50's over the past 3 seasons - However untill he puts in some consistant performances for the WA side, there is little chance of him representing Australia. Talent is there, though.

    A name I'd be keeping in mind for the future is Justin Coetzee, tall left arm all rounder, in the Brendan Julian type. Ripped Pakistan up in the WA 2nd XI, is having a good time for Scarborough, who knows what the future holds for him.

    Pfft, call me biased, but most people will know how high I rate Luke Ronchi. Glovework is amazing, just needs to mature as a batter a bit (take out the 2 first ball ducks from his 1D record and he has a decent set of averages). Havn't seen much of this Crossthwaite bloke (in real life that is), but given the Vics travel here in January I'll keep an eye on him - I refuse to comment about a player who I've seen little of.
    eep.

    8 years is too far away - but in 5 years time I think Australia are in trouble. There are only a few promising players coming through.

    In 8 years time it will be towards the end of 2012. I find it hard to see David Hussey at almost 35 still going around the Australian team, if he ever makes the side at all.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    That was the general insinuation, yes.
