With Australia's team getting older, and whilst they are performing admiraly and nor could you fault them for it, after the Ashes and there isn't a few retirements (at this stage it is buckley's and none), do you think that the Australian selectors might to have make a tough call and face load of critism from the media, here, your average punter at work, at the bar, or on the street (ie Steve Waugh from the ODI team), look to end the careers of some of the older player's and bring in some younger players so they don't at one point all have a mass exodus of players and be found wanting (like what happened to the West Indies and Australia when Lillee, Marsh and Greg Chappell all quit at once) against other teams?
Now before I'm burned at the stake, I'm not suggesting McGrath, Warne, Ponting or Gilchrist (although you never know if he becomes Flintoff''s prag [more or less a b***h] again this summer) be given the axe nor I'm saying it should happen in one big foul swoop, but a gradial thing. Like what they did to the Waugh's etc. Australia's cuurent crop of player's can't last forever and it would be a good time to eventually to test out their depth and look to rebuild.
I'm thinking it could end up happening to Martyn or one of the openers first.
Bear in mind I'm not calling that it should happen, but I'm trying to think outside the box and see other people's opinion/s.
