    Yeah, one of these. Put your money where your mouth is, and we'll dig it in four years to see how wrong we are.

    Wells (big punt this one since I haven't seen him live yet, but hearsay and stats are good)
    Young

    Milne

    Reserves: Raval, Franklin, Austin-Smellie, Broom, Boult, Wheeler.

    McCullum (if Baz gets injured and retires I'll say Brodie)
    Guptill
    Williamson
    Taylor
    Ryder
    Neil Broom
    Young folllowed possibly by Cachopa
    Astle or Beard
    Bracewell
    Southee
    Boult


    Austin-Smellie might be close to the team but he is a hard call. Milne and Bennett should also be in or around the team. Wouldn't be entirely surprised if Broom jnr. made a go of it too. Oh and Corey Anderson at 6 could be an option. May be a bit after this date though.

    Wagner will either be spearheading this attack or never get in it.

    Yeah looks a good prediction. Why Brad Cachopa? You've seen him keep?

    Reckon Corey Anderson will struggle with injury.

    Expect Dilshan, Sanga, MJ and Samaraweera to call it a day by 2015, but Sanga and MJ on 37 have a chance of playing by then, Any way I omit both of them in the list.

    Tharanga Paranavithana (LH)
    Lahiru Thirimanne (LH)
    Dinesh Chandimal (RH, rwk)
    Angelo Mathews* (RH, RFM)
    Thilina Kandamby (LH)
    Kaushal Silva+ (RH)
    Banuka Rajapakshe (LH, RMF)
    Suraj Randiv (RH, OB)
    Sachithra Senanayake (RH, OB)
    Lasith Malinga (RH, RF)
    Thilan Thushara (LH, LFM)

    Both Randiv and Senanayake will be very gritty lower order batsmen. Rajapakse is in Jayasuriya mold. Still 19, and ATM flaying the ENG U-19 bowlers at Galle. He's avery useful right arm medium fast bowlers too. SL in 2015 will depend on varierty and all rounders. Legendary names like Sanga, Mahela, Murali will be missing and SL will be in th rebuilding phase by then.
    Member of the Sanga fan club. (Ugh! it took me so long to become a real fan of his)

    Sehwag and Zaheer won't last for another 4 years. They are already battling fitness issues....

    Zaheer? He'd be 37 by 2015, I can't see him or even Sehwag lasting that long.

    Anyhow....

    Hughes
    Watson
    Khawaja
    Clarke (if his back is still alive)
    Mitch Marsh
    Smith
    Paine
    Siddle
    Starc
    Pattinson
    Hazlewood
    5-0

    Both will be finished by injury by 2015. Finn will have spent most of his time steadily improving in county cricket, and will be a relatively new addition to the squad.

    I definitely expect Sehwag to still be around, unless his eye has deserted him by then..

    No way in the world Zaheer will still be there - he's struggling to be fully fit as it is, I can't see him lasting past 2012.

    Sehwag will be 37 also - and the way he plays will suggest that he'll lose it quickly.
