    Not too sure Dizzy will still be there, I'd say Lee has more chance. He's couple of years younger with far fewer miles on the clock.

    I'll have a bash @ England:

    1) Strauss *
    2) Newman
    3) Vaughan
    4) Bell
    5) Joyce
    6) Pietersen
    7) Flintoff
    8) Prior +
    9) Tremlett
    10) S. Jones
    11) Harmison

    Pietersen, of course, will be a world-class off spin bowler by then!
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    what do you think
    Decent team. But you can not be serious about David Hussey. The guy is almost 30, and he got dropped from his state side last summer. He's pretty average, I reckon.

    I'd go more for something like

    1. Langer
    2. Jacques
    3. Ponting
    4. Clarke
    5. Katich
    6. Watson
    7. Haddin
    8. Cullen
    9. Lee
    10. Tait
    11. Bird

    Mate, if you're nearing 30, and you've only really had one good FC season here in Australia, and you got dropped last summer, odds are that you won't play Test cricket.

    "Coming back" implies that he was good in the first place. He was only ever a "one season wonder". And it took him until his late 20's to have that good season. A player such as he should be happy to just have a FC career. And, if you're a fan of his, then just be happy if he plays FC cricket for the rest of his career. It's as far as his talent will take him.

    Zimbabwe- probably the hardest to predict

    B. Taylor or B. Rogers
    N. Ferreira or V. Sibanda
    D. Ebrahim or D. Marillier
    H. Masakadza *
    T. Mawoyo or C. Coventry or S. Williams
    T. Taibu+
    E. Chigumbura
    A. Blignaut
    T. Panyangara
    G. Cremer or P. Utseya
    D. Hondo

    The "ors" are in case of emigration. Obviously the others might emigrate too, so it's pretty difficult to predict a Zimbok side. I have a feeling that by 2008 Tatenda might not want to captain anymore, his workload is so harsh, and I think Hamilton Masakadza would make a very good captain, in fact I reckon by 2008 he'll be averaging upper 30's, he's a fine player. Tino Mawoyo is the current U19 captain and I don't think a test call is too far away for him. Panyangara has enough talent to become the New Streak.

    Obviously if there is a regime change a considerably stronger side could be assembled, employing Sean Ervine (look out for his brother Craig by the way, he could make it by 2008) Travis Friend, The Raymeister, and a whole load of exiled Zimbabweans. We can only hope.

    how can you say that about a player that avereages 53.56 in 50 matches with 13 hundreds
    it apperas as though you have something against him i would say dropping him was stupid as he was starting to get back in form

    Mate, you're not listening. Look at his FC record in AUSTRALIA (the toughest domestic cricket in the world). He got dropped last summer. He has had one season of good cricket out here. In 2008 he will be 31/32. If you think he will play Test cricket for Australia in 2008, then good luck to you. But, on the balance of probabilities, he will not.

    Fit as a bull. Lives for cricket. Hell, I reckon he will make another Ashes tour. Put it this way - he won't voluntarily walk away from his beloved Baggy Green. This is a man who shead tears when the team song was handed over to him to perform. The man who describes Lords as something that "lifts you up and gives you a big bear hug, and slap on the back, like an old grandfather who you havent seen for a while." Loves his cricket!

    To tell you the truth, I can. He eats cricket and will play on as long as possible - I guess whether he'll still be in the side by then is up for conjecture.

    He wasn't really getting back into form, but it was another case of not transferring form from One Dayers, where he was averaging 40+, to Pura Cup - ave of about 22-23. I think there were other blokes *cough* Moss *cough* whose head should have been on the chopping block before that, and in the end (from all reports) could well have cost him a trip to NZ with the ODI side.
