    The Next Big Stars

    Who will be the McGrath's, Warne's, Tendulkar's and Lara's of tomorrow? Which young (or older) stars of today will be impressing in years to come?

    Who will standout?

    My own picks for the Kiwi team will be:

    Southee
    Taylor
    Ryder
    Hay
    Anderson

    I personally believe Taylor can become one of the top 5 Test batsman in the world, while I have hopes that Southee can dominate. Ryder could go either way, into drunken obscurity or he could be a world leader. The two others though yet to poke their noses in the international scene have a lot of talent in their pockets and could definitely go on to become stars.

    What about the likes of Steyn, Sharma, Broad, Malinga do any of these young guys have the potential and the mental ability to do well on the world stage?

    (Rich to look this page up in 5 years time to comment on who was right and wrong FTW)

    Yep, Jesse "Forget about the last one, get yourself another" Ryder and Rosco for the Kiwis. Southee possibly.

    Out of the top of my head:
    Ishant Sharma
    Dale Steyn
    Stuart Broad
    Alistair Cook
    Michael Clarke
    Mitchell Johnson

    Both the Sharmas, absolutely. They get my first vote in the bowling and batting departments from India.

    Gambhir debuted on the international scene 4+ years ago and so probably doesnt meet the intent of this thread (in any case, I doubt he'll be a bigger star than what he is right now). Uthappa, I think he is probably among the top 2-3 choices among several equals (like Sreesanth for eg) and not a star as such.

    If we overlook the debuted 4+ years ago aspect, I think (or rather hope) that Irfan Pathan will have a lasting impact as a true all rounder.
