    Number 400 ?

    After Mitchell Johnson became the 398th player to wear the baggy green, who do you think will be No.400 ??

    With the volume of tests Australia is playing, they are more than likely to have injuries to their fast men rather than their batsman.

    So I reckon Hilfenhaus should be 399 & Noffke 400 (as a bowling AR) - don't see any other potential candidates (Rogers, D Hussey (who the selectors seem to despise for some reason ??), Heal, Henriques etc.) getting a game in the near future.

    Noffke is still an outside-shot to get a cap TBH. Mind, if Shaun Young and Scott Muller can, he certainly can.

    Hilf will be around there, but it really is too hard to determine, though one thing must be said is that Australia is less likely to pull a suprise selection compared to other nations and their selections in the ODI circuit.

    I can only see Hilf in the near future being selected and if any other injuries do come up, the likes of Watson, Hodge and Katich will snap up the places and for the bowlers, Tait, Cullen and maybe even Dizzy will come back in the frame.

    So summing up, Hilf most likely for 399 and 400 is anyone's guess.

    My 2 cents: Noffke won't wear the whites. Possibly the colours, but not the whites.

    399. Hilfenhaus
    400. Haddin

    Mr Casson and I discussed this well over a year ago and his opinion at the time was Cosgrove and mine was Hartley. How thing's change.

    Yeah, would have to say Noffke is a big chance of getting the 400, although it could be anyone.

    This is a poor representation of Scott Muller. He was a gun bowler, his bowling ability has been let down by the Warne comment and Muller's handling of the situation. But, the fact is he deserved his chance, and he didn't bowl that badly when he had it. Can't believe he gets brought up when guys like Nicholson, Wilson and Cook were not even close to the class of Muller. Shaun Young on the other hand.

    Actually Noffke has been in career best form this season, so you never know if somebody breaks down.

    If somebody breaks down Hilfenhaus and Tait are next in line. I wouldn't be surprised if they got Bracken into the baggy green before Noffke. I think it's more likely that someone like Haddin or Rogers will come in if their superiors get injured.

    Haha, was thinking about making this exact thread today, then I remembered that I cbf making threads.

    I guess a fastbowler would be more likely to break down than a batsman, so Hilfy's probably going to be 399, which makes me think that Stedman could be on to something with Haddin. When you think about it though, the team's fairly set; the last debutant was Cullen in 05/06, and that was against Bangladesh, so it might be a while before the 400th actually gets a run. But when you think about it, most of those waiting in the wings have already debuted; Watson, Tait, Bracken, Hodge, even Gillespie and Katich.

    Of course. I'm just saying that it's unlikely Noffke will get a cap any time soon.

    400 Rogers perhaps? Hayden has indicated earlier that this summer may be his last...

    Hilfenhaus, Haddin & Rogers are the next in line to make their debuts imo (in that order too) so Haddin will be 400 for mine.

    It is staggering how long it has taken Australia to not yet get to 400 and yet England has well over 600 Test capped players. How many of them (English) are either one-cap wonders or should have never been picked in the first place?
