    Your side in 2013?

    IYO, what would your national side look like in 3 years time?

    Australia, FTR...
    1. Hughes
    2. Watson (I'd go Jaques but I dunno where to put him)
    3. Ponting
    4. Katich
    5. Clarke
    6. Ferguson
    7. Steve Smith/Hauritz (move down to 9 if Hauritz)
    8. Haddin (or some other keeper)
    9. Johnson
    10. Siddle
    11. Bollinger/Hilfenhaus/McKay/other seamer

    Things can change though.
    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy 1988-2014. 63* for eternity.

    TM Dilshan RH, OB
    NT Paranavithana LH, OB
    KC Sangakkara (c) LH
    DPMD Jayawardane RH
    T Kandamby LH, LBG
    AD Mathews RH, RFM
    JK Silva (wk) RH
    D Prasad RH, RFM / RF
    HMRKB Herath LH, SLA
    MTT Mirando LH, LFM / LF
    L Malinga RH, RF

    Reserve
    BAW Mendis RH, OB
    KMDN Kulasekara RH, RFM
    CK Kapugedara RH, RMF

    The team not to hange much in net 3 years. Samaraweera may play 2-3 more seasons and then retire. Kandamby and Kapugedara are the contenders there. Dilshan has 4-5 seasons left, so is Sangakkara and Jayawardane. JK Silva will replae Prasanna Jayawardane if he fails to score, and since there's no Murali, keeping will be easier. Fast attack will not change much, Thushara, Malinga and Prasad holds the key. They are the quikest SL have at the moment. Kulasekara may come in o injury or on lively pitches, and Mendis on spinning pitches
    Supporting players: Dinesh Chandimal, Roshen Silva, Kusal Janith, Nuwan Pradeep, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Akila Dhananjaya, Dhananjaya de Silva

    Thats a guess.
    Both you and Howsie posted teams with a lot of really young players. TBH I'm sick of NZ constantly fielding teams full of players with potential who might come good. Perhaps we'll be lucky and one or two of those guys named will jump into test cricket and immediately be at home, but otherwise if they're there it's probably because others have failed and so they've been thrown in the deep end early.

    In three years time any of Elliott, Fulton, Franklin or Tuffey could still be around if they grab their chances, not to mention the slightly younger Flynn & Broom. Some seniority in the team would be a big boost. Tuffey and Arnel especially will be 34 ish and I'd hope at least one of them would be going strong to lead the bowling attack. Otherwise Southee at age 23 will be our most senior fast bowler .

    Still, if all of Vettori, McCullum, Ryder, Taylor and Guptill are still around and performing in three years time then we'll be doing better than we are now.

    I didn't say they'd be any good..

    Also I got Tuffey and Arnel's age wrong, woops. 2013 is closer than I thought, though we're all going to die 2012 anyway.

    Fulton, Broom, Elliott, Flynn are all big ifs just like Brodie and Raval. They may have been cast aside for good by then.

    I have serious doubts over Franklin. He doesn't seem to care about his bowling, when he bowls he's injury prone and his batting is very unproven at test level (short balls make him very uncomfortable).

    I said my team was a guess, because I honestly can't say who will be there in 2013 because there are so many ifs.

    Thats a guess.
    On further thought and realising Johan Myburgh exists I'll make a second guess:

    Martin Guptill
    Josh Brodie
    Johan Myburgh
    Ross Taylor
    Jesse Ryder
    Kane Williamson
    Brendon McCullum
    Daniel Vettori

    Tim Southee
    Daryl Tuffey
    Trent Boult

    Bolded players are the only ones I'm really confident will be there. The others I vary from confident to errr..
