    Just as likely to be some unknown Pakistani or Aussie we've never even heard of yet.

    7 years is a ridiculously long time. Taylor will probably be good, yes, but best in The World? In 7 years? That's a guess no-one can make with any remote pretence of accuracy.

    He reminds me of Ally Cook and I think both have the potential to be leading players in 7 years time. Saying that, Richard's point is perfectly valid IMO

    In what way does he remind you of Cook?

    Not having a go at you - just wondering, as I can't see many similarities at all other than them being young and batsmen.

    I think he's already NZ's best batsman, and will go on to become their all time greatest.

    I could imagine him being in the top 5 in the world.

    To be NZ Greatest batsmen is not out of the question but you have the likes of Martin Crowe to compete with?

    Bowman clearly meant right now not of all-time.

    And such a suggestion - in ODIs - is quite reasonable IMO.

    He's great to watch, but personally, I think his tendency to swing across the line when he's faced a few dots will get him in trouble, especially if it carries over to test cricket. (which going on his FC record it probably does.)

    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Undoubtedly the best of New Zealand's next generation of batsmen, and arguably the most exciting batting prospect to have emerged anywhere in the last year. Looks a bit suspect when he plays the hook but otherwise has few weaknesses besides a tendency to try and push the run rate too early in his innings.

    The FUTURE is that which has not happened yet.

    So NO, Ross Taylor is NOT the FUTURE.

    But he will take part in the FUTURE!
