    World Cup 2011 XI Prediction thread

    So.. who do you think will be the stars in 4 years time?!

    I will post mine once I have chosen the bowlers as they seemingly need more thought than the batters.

    It wasn't really country specific Barney. More a prediction of a WORLD XI.

    I agree with your England XI though mind, especially with Broad's inclusion.

    Yeah, I knew what you meant with the thread. Just wanted to add my two cents about England, thought the other future stars would be pointed out soon enough.

    I feel this could become an interesting discussion as the Bangladesh team all look to have so much potential, along with people like Boyd Rankin of Ireland and the other obvious bigger names such as Clarke and Pietersen.

    Cook IMO is going to be a big star in the future.

    More so in Tests than ODIs I feel. He is a quality act though obviously with an excellent head on his shoulders.

    England have really good youngsters coming through IMO, especially with people with Broad, Bopara, Bell and Cook.

    Will be looking for guys like Patel and Taylor to dominate from New Zealand.

    Taylor more than Patel IMO. I haven't been overly impressed by Patel.

    Mohammed Ashraful could be another big name in the coming years. He has a good big game temperament as well as an obvious talent.

    Definately, but Patel has been reasonably steady without impressing all the time. He certainly does a job for the team and is quite good at it. Nowhere near the levels of Vettori though.

    Your use of "does a job" is interesting...

    I hope he doesn't become the Kiwi Ashley Giles!

    Maybe there might be new teams for all, as the opening ceremony of the 2009 Champions Trophy might be hit by an earthquake, rendering all the players there perminantly disabled and incapable of playing cricket ever again...

    Which is a long-winded way of saying that 4 years is such a long time threads like this are nothing more than an excuse to make random guesses.
