    You make it sound like the World Cup is the only thing worth bothering with in One Day cricket.. I find that worrying..

    I hope that's irony, 'cos he looked very average with the bat in the test series; he particularly didn't fancy Freddie's short pitched stuff.

However, Australia is likely to see a major number of players retiring after the World Cup, or soon after it. Warne and McGrath spring to mind, and Langer, Hayden, Martyn, Kasprowicz and Gilchrist will all be into their mid to late 30s by the time the World Cup rolls around.

    Aside from Australia, there aren't many obvious candidates. I think like the last time, people are likely to hang around for the World Cup and retire after it.
    Agreed. the first team that comes to mind is Australia. but I think most Aus players will retire after the world cup.

    So you think Lee and Gillespie won't age?, how funny, they are the 2nd and 3rd youngest in the XI so far

    I don't see why McGrath can't play until 40.

    He's got a lotta miles on the clock already. Only Walsh & Kapil Dev of seamers have bowled more overs than him & Kapil Dev retired @ 35. He does look like he's taken care of himself & has a wonderfully economical action, but there's still wear-and-tear.

    There is, but I know Walsh's action wasn't quite as crispy clean as Mcgrath's.. what about Kapil Dev?

    I'm not saying he will go on to 40, I just think that the way his body has held up, and the amount of success he's had with such economical use of his body, there's no reason that he couldn't do it.

    I never really saw Kapil Dev at his peak, when I saw him he was only a shade above military-medium pace, but still fairly economical.

    Having seen clips of him in his youthful pomp it looks like he'd lost a couple of yards of pace by his late twenties, so he obviously wasn't as robustly constructed as McGrath.

    The Australian selectors took the big step of dropping the players they didn't think would make the next WC after the last one. ( Bevan, Bichel ).

    Lehmann and McGrath are probably the biggest doubts. The former due to form ( age-related? ) and the latter because of the potential for injuries.

    Lehmann's really no chance of making it that far, IMO

    mcgrath will play on at least until the world cup, he is outstanding. I think many of the currently 30+ players will retire after the WC across all teams.

    It will be the end of a goleden age. There aren't that many young 'great' pace bowlers; a few names such as Pathan and well, thats about it, spring to mind. How old is Shane Bond these days?
