    I personally think Phil Hughes.

    Umar Akmal's 19.

    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.

    Lets not forget James Taylor who is probably the best youngster in England.

    Seems to be alot of good talent about.

    Interesting thread, to be totally honest I don't think are that many great young batting talents around at the moment, Pujara looks promising, very good temperament, but injuries and the continued selection of Yuvraj in the test side may hold him back. 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?
