    Who will make a big impact in 2006?

    2005 had Flintoff, Pietersen and the like with some others like Akmal and Hussey making their mark late in the year.

    Who will be the stars of 2006?

    For me I'm expecting a big year from the following:

    Hussey
    Akmal
    Pathan
    Akhtar
    Ponting
    Fulton

    to name a few

    This is Simon Jones' year. He had a great 2005, but he's ready for an exceptional 2006.
    Or something.

    Gotta agree with that, if he can keep fit I believe he will be England's finest quicky by some distance.

    This is the year everyone forgets about Graeme Thorpe, because Ian Bell becomes the mainstay of the England middle order.

    Just off the top of my head: Pathan, Akhtar, Hussey, Simon Jones, Butt and McGrath.

    Lee is now one of the world's best bowlers.

    Even though he has produced good returns lately, they still do not reflect the quality of his bowling.

    Afridi, shocking cheat that he is, is also on the rise.

    Shane Bond is real quality - hope he remains fit.

    Andre Nel has shown that he is more than just bluster.

    Shoaib has produced one series where he has aligned talent with attitude.

    Agreed. Afridi could take off big style this year, particularly in Tests. He hasn't really fired in a World Cup as yet either, so he will be looking to cement his place in the ODI lineup.

    My players to watch out for are Bell, Anderson, Plunkett, Shah, Afridi, Mohammad Asif, Pathan, Dhoni, Kaif, Yuvraj, Tillekaratne Dilshan, Bandara...

    and Mushfiqur Rahim and Saqibul Hasan

    I agree with Anderson and Plunkett, I think Anderson is gradually getting back to his best and Plunkett will keep improving leaps and bounds. I think one of them could well take Hoggard's Test spot by the end of 2006. Anderson should become a fixture in the ODI side.

    Im a big fan of Anderson and also hope that Colly does well.

    Too early to tell re Plunkett. He was massively over-hyped in Pakistan by Botham, etc for my liking.

    Havent seen enough (or any) of most of the other sub-continent players.

    Really looking forward to the India-Pak series which will be beemed live here.
