Matthews (SL) looks well organised and has a good temperament, Sharma (Ind) oozes class but his technique and temperament are too loose. In England there a few names being spoken about, e.g. Northeast, Hamilton-Brown, but neither are really setting the county scene alight. Bopara is young enough to be discussed but similarly to Sharma he has technical and temperamental issues, Cook just refuses to improve. Umar Akmal is very talented, but whether he can progress from flat track bully to proper batsman remains to be seen (his brother hasn't done it). Hughes is probably one to watch, though I'm not convinced with his technique he does seem to score an awful lot of runs. Anyone from South Africa?
    Echoing the Canadian poster, Jonathan Vandiar and Rilee Rossouw.

    England have some good young batsmen coming through the ranks. Alex Hales, Sam Northeast, James Vince, Varun Chopra, Rory Hamilton-Brown and Liam Dawson spring to mind. Can see a couple of them playing for England and having real good careers, Hamilton-Brown especially, looks a real talent.
    Chopra has been around for sometime now and RHB, is just a pinch-hitter. A rather good one but I've not seen enough to suggest he is anything more. Talented cricketer though.

    Like Northeast, carried the England U19 team and has put a few scores together for Kent whilst Vince and Hales both look more than decent.

    Already mentioned but James Taylor seems to be the best of current crop. I don't like watching him bat but his doing the business for Leicestershire.

    Kane Williamson of New Zealand. Didn't have a great emerging players tour but was head and shoulders different class when NZ U19 toured England last year.

    Nasir Hossain, of Bangladesh. Didn't play for the Under 19s this season, even though he's eligible for at least another whole year, because he was with the Academy side. Very promising middle-order bat and offspinner.

    Liam Dawson IMO. His innings was way more impressive than Vince's and he is only a year older. Can bowl well as well.

    From South Africa its Dean Elgar, Rilee Rossouw and Jonathan Vandiar.

    Vandiar and Rossouw are probably the most exciting to watch purely because of their willingness to attack non-stop. But you cannot right off a hard worker like Elgar as they are just as important to a batting line-up.

    Elgar manipulates fields with touch play. Scored a double ton at 19 on SA's seaming domestic pitches.

    Rossouw bashes the ball like Graeme Smith and also like the reverse sweep. sCORED 131 OFF 108 balls last season in list A game.

    Vandiar is a silky wrist player like Amla who loves using his feet to the spinners. Debuted at 17 while still at school and scored 172 off 210 balls last season in 4-day cricket.

    and all are left-handers.

    For us I'd nominate:

    Kane Williamson
    Corey Anderson
    George Worker
    Jeet Raval
    Andrew de Boorder (think he's under 21, all I know is he hasn't played many games but seems to do well)

    Out of those that haven't played FC cricket (and yes I am making this subcategory for an ulterior purpose):

    James Neesham ftw. Move over Hughes.

    Have high hopes for both of them, both look to have real quality about them which I have not seen much of from young Hampshire batsman. Having said that Dawson has had a pretty tough season this year, think that he is not sure what sort player he is going to be yet, I personally feel he must continue to work on his bowling as well as his batting. Vince has made a habit of getting to 20 odd and then getting out but I am sure that is an issue that can be overcome with experience.

    Kane Williamson in particular is supposedly unspeakably good.
