    Not exactly a long term bet and I CBF digging it up right now, but in the 09 Ashes prediction thread, I predicted that Brett Lee will play his last Test for Australia. Obviously he didn't play in that series, but disregarding that, looks like I could yet be right about it. Will see how it goes.

    Amit Mishra will finish his career with an average below 30.

    Its because I'm awesome, reckon Jeets will get some wickets when Vettori is out. Will probably end up 50 or so short though.

    My bets ATM (largely concerning young players)...
    Phil Hughes and Umar Akaml will average > 50.
    Kane Williamson and Adrian Barath will average > 40.
    Jonathon Vandiar and Rilee Rossouw will come gun crickets in the future.

    Wayne Parnell, Mohammad Aamer and Ishant Sharma will average < 25.
    Tim Southee and Piyush Chawla will average < 30.
    At least one of Scott Walter, Alister McDermott, James Pattinson and Josh Hazlewood will have a distinguished career.

    I realise that by the time their international careers finish the forum will be a different place, but meh.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Rob Quiney to play 50+ ODIs, Michael Klinger to get a Baggy Green.

    Anyone?

    I am pretty confident that Quiney will not play 50+ ODIs, I just can't see it happening and even if he gets a game for Aus I don't think he'll be a permanent enough fixture for a year or two to get to the half century.

    Klinger.. hmm, not certain on this one really because he has a chance to be the next number 3 after Ponting IMO.

    Quiney may play for us, but it won't be for 50+ ODIs. Doubt Klinger will play for Australia - Ponting & Katich will probably last until their late 30's ATS, as might Hussey.

    Think the bolded one is your most unlikely bet - IMO it's extremely hard to pick who of the current crop of young bowlers will stay injury-free, develop and learn enough to become that good. All of those bowlers plus the ones you mentioned below that have a long way to go to be that good.

    Could stick my neck out and say Aamer will end up averaging as much with the bat as he will with the ball.
