I think Hussey,Pietersen or Asif
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).

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.

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.Originally Posted by FaaipDeOiad
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.Originally Posted by Jono
