    Future test 11s

    Would be interesting to see how the test 11 look like if we don't consider those who are 34 and above!

    I will start with the Ind 11:

    - Karthik
    - Gambhir
    - Kohli
    - Sehwag (said wants to bat at #4 in future)
    - Panday
    - UV / All -rounder
    - Dhoni
    - Bhajji / Mishy
    - Zak
    - Ishant
    - Sree
    Fastest gun in town

    There is always a future - the question is how far into the future are we talking?

    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Well, yeah, but it's the whole reason why I find talking about "the future" in Test cricket so incomprehensively pointless. Test cricket is overwhelmingly about the here and now - the best one team has to offer, right now, against the best another team has to offer, right now. Yes, you can look a little way down the line with a reasonable amount of confidence, but try to look too far ahead (and "too far" is not really very far at all) and you're faced with all sorts of obstacles that make it little more worthwhile than sticking pins in a piece of paper blindfold to see whether you create an interesting piece of artwork.

    FTR, I don't find threads like this very interesting - that's about the summation of things.

    When I was thinking abt the title of this thread, I knew someone would ask this as if it weren't so obvious

    Obviously, I am not taking abt a 2020 team unless you want to prognosticate a line up with names not many would have heard of. The line up for Ind that I have given gives an insight in to this too. It's near future when the guys 34 and above are expected to retire. Ofc someone can come up with a meaningless argument that how would you know that someone aged 35 would retire, he can play till he is 38-40 and so on. The original posts throws some hints too that we are talking abt a line up assuming that the guys 34 and above would have retired duh

    In short, players who you think would be around/playing/debuting in the next couple of years or so sans those who are 34 and above. The idea of this thread is for me (and others who are also interested) to better understand what future line ups could look like sans some of the key players based on things that I have said.

    That's got to be among the better tails ever. (India once played Pathan-Kumble-Harbhajan-Zaheer in ~ 2005 iirc but the remaining 3 have upped the ante since then, and Mishra has done well with the bat twice this year).

    Virat Kohli appears to have a more sensible head on his shoulders than Vijay, for mine.
    Won't touch the Yuvraj topic, but if the bar is that low there are enough candidates.

    Really, it's far too hard to tell with New Zealand. Although I would expect Ross Taylor, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Jesse Ryder, Brendon McCullum, Daniel Vettori, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Corey Anderson and Nick Beard to be in and around the test squad in around three years.

    Don't discount the likes of Nohit sharma,Suresh Raina,Cheteshwar Pujara and even Mohammad Kaif either.
    And there are others too in the fray like nayar(all rounder )and Karthik as a batsmen and there are wildcards too like Abhimanyu Mithun,Manoj Tiwary,Tanmay Srivastava,Yusuf Pathan,Swapnil Asnodkar and last but not least Ajinkya Rahane.

    That is only counting the batsmen.

    Though for me the biggest talents IF I had to choose four prospects are-

    Rohit Sharma,Manish Pandey,Cheteshwar Pujara and a tie at fourth for Virat Kohli and Rahane.
