    FUUUUUUUUUUUU.

    Just realised that Pujara was over 20.

    And missed Adrian Barath, too.

    If Williamson wasn't 18 he'd already be in the NZ team by now. Is probably the best domestic batsmen (After Sinclair) that NZ has. Pretty good too considering he plays at Cobham Oval.

    He just turned 19. I think he needs another year or so like everyone said.
    His FC average is 45 already. And his List A is 39.

    But he didn't do great in the NZ A team.

    Also -the following criticism is harsh but in the following game

    Cricket Archive

    he scored 100 runs - but I thought he showed his inexperience. Northern were needing 22 off the last 3 overs and he didn't seem to have the game to get a boundary when we needed one and Northern lost by 5 runs. I think he will learn from the experience and will bring us home next time. Apologies for this harsh comment and realise a century is a century.

    I think we threw Ken Rutherford to the wolves, the West Indies, when he was like 19 and he averaged 2 runs for the tour. So I think we want to let Kane grow.

    Steve Smith, Pujara, Hughes are some of the younger blokes who are likely to have very bright future.

    Tamim Iqbal, he is a veteran of the Bangladesh cricket team and has another 10 or so years in him. He's definitely one to watch out for in years to come.

    Umar Akmal, this guy looks to be a serious talent for Pakistan. He has dominated in dometic cricket and recently in the australia A vs Pakistan A series. And then comes and plays for Pakistan and does well in his debut games.

    A bright future ahead for this guy.

    Younger brothers are traditionally under achievers in cricket. Mark Waugh, Grant Flower etc.

    Early days obviously, but so far I've not been too impressed with Smith's batting. It'll be interesting how many chances he gets especially in the four day matches this year with NSW having a billion batting options.

    I wouldnt mind giving him a run in a couple of T20's this year and if he performs consistantly domestically then perhaps ODI's v Bangladesh (they are touring right). But definately not test matches, should wait untill 2010/2011 summer.

    From all reports hes a massive talent, really hoping he comes through.
    Daniel Vettori is an absolute legend!

    Pujara's name has been mutilated. It is Cheteshwar Pujara not Chestewatar Pujara.

    And missed Adrian Barath, too.
    Was just about to have a moan before I saw that post . Well I guess I'll have a moan anyway, he should have been one of the first on the list. An FC average just under 50 in our 4 day competition is incredible simply because the umpiring is shocking. He has also scored runs prolifically at every level he has played.

    Young Kraigg Braithwaite is an amazing young batsman but he has only just started his FC career at 16 years old. He is yet to perform like Barath has in regional cricket, but I have no doubts he will do and will play for the West Indies.

    Should already be a test international but the West Indies thought playing Bangladesh with only four batsman (one of whom was the hapless, Floyd Reifer) was the way to go.

    Yeah ridiculous really. Picking a 16 yr old isn't ideal but he >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Reifer. And probably he >>>> Dowlin, but Dowlin actually did pretty good.
