    Aussie contracts

    They will be named shortly after the world cup,wonder who will score a contract this season,expect a few surprises a few left field picks.
    Warne,martyn,langer and mcgrath gone,wonder if brad hogg will call it quits after the world cup.
    Heard simon katich and dan cullen,as well as kasperowicz and gillespie will lose their contracts.

    Can't see why any of those four you mentioned in the last sentence would retain their contracts, Dan Cullen is maybe the only one but that depends on what Hogg and MacGill are doing next season.

    Fair bets on Hogg leaving after the World Cup. MacGill is the kind of player who won't stop now he's got his chance. Even though he's how old??

    Yeah, MacGill said he wants to stick around for another 2-3 years if possible.

    Hogg could quite possibly keep going until the next World Cup if he wanted to, with his fine form and the lack of any up and coming spinners who will be ready for the next season. MacGill is 36 but now that he's got an opportunity he'll cling to it, he's waited so long.

    Yeh I s'pose. I've always felt he'd go, though. Which would be a shame I'm an avid fan.

    I think he'll go to, just pointing out that he could quite conceivably carry on for another few years.

    Rogers and Hilfenhaus are certainties. Hard to know who, out of our FC middle order ranks is going to replace Katich and Martyn though (especially seeing as though chaps like Cosgrove really struggled last season).

    yes i am an avid fan aswell its great to see a chinaman bowler and a good one at that with such wonderul control Bradd Hogg Exhibits for an over the wrist spinner in limited overs cricket.

    He will retire although he has 4 years left in him

    Well, one would assume Voges, given his test-squad selection and ODI appearances. I have a feeling Katich might be retained.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I have a feeling that Brad Hogg will be given another contract as he's bowling brilliantly at the moment, and is a chance to play some Test Cricket, especially if we opt for two spinners on a turning wicket in the sub-continent.

    Similar way to how you got Harwood in there, except Cosgrove is a future talent and Harwood has played his one and only game for Australia, unless we rest our stars in the 20/20 World Championship rubbish in September.

    Cosgrove is a great player and I don't think he's far away from making the ODI team at all.

    Brad Hogg will not play another test for Australia. He averages 40 in FC cricket, and isn't even picked for his state side.
