    I voted Abe De Villiers. I think he'll turn out to be a brilliant WK/batsman.

    I'd hardly call Hussey up and coming. He's been churning out runs in English country cricket for years and years, and nobody ever called him up.

    I've voted for Shariar Nafees, not because he is the best "upcoming" player, but for the side that he plays in, I think he could have a major role to play in their future and be one of the rocks of the Bangladeshi batting order.

    Hussey's not really an 'up & comer' he's been around for decades.

    I think Bravo has the most potential of those listed (discounting Hussey).

    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 *********!

    I wouldn't call Dhoni, Asif, Hussey or Pietersen "upcoming". They are regulars for their sides in both forms of the game and won't be dropped any time soon. Well, except Dhoni perhaps, but he's been around for a while too.

    From the others, I think Johnson stands out among the bowlers, and Bell among the batsmen, if he still counts as up and coming. Among the all-rounders, it's tough to pick between Bravo and Watson right now, as both have been very impressive recently. Watson has probably been getting more results in ODI cricket, while Bravo's done more in tests.

    I dont agree completely, faiip.
    These guys dont have much experience under the belt and if they were to have 10 outings where they bollox up, all their averages would nosedive/skyrocket to woeful levels. They are integral today,i admit,because all of them have come with a strong start. But they are still newbies and can all be gone by the end of the world cup if they all suddenly start emulating Sami or Dwayne Smith.

    And Watson vs Bravo is hardly a contest currently.
    Bravo plays in a weaker team and has done quite well in tests-Watto-err.what tests ?
    In ODIs, both their bowling is very similar. Both are newbies and the only thing Watto has is 'i bat better in ODIs'. Bravo's counter is 'i am equal in ODI bowling, have a good test record in both batting and bowling (as allrounder)while you dont!mwahaha'.
    And Bravo wins.

    Asif has played 6 tests. That's up and coming in anyone's language, no matter how good he is and how solid his position is in the Pak team.

    Its only one more test than an Ashes series.

    If you consider him up and coming, he's certainly the best of that list, but I don't consider him that simply because he's already established. I view the question as "which of these players who is not yet established at international level is the most promising", I guess. Just a matter of interpretation.
