    How does Chandimal not get a mention?
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    People you overlooked:

    Nasir Hossain is 21 years old
    Dinesh Chandigun is 23 years old
    Tamim Iqbal is 23 years old
    Mushfiqur Rahim is 24 years old
    Phillip Hughes is 24 years old

    All of these guys are better than Powell.

    Actually thought Nasir was around 24. Pretty exciting prospect IMO. He is a massive gun.

    Pujara.

    Hughes comes second for me IMO. Also like the look of Root.

    EDIT: And Chandimal and Jono.

    Kohli mate, you're confusing the kids. They're not meant to just be able to just find all the colours in one place. They need to point to the sky, or a firetruck or something.

    ♫ Blue! [Hold up a blue flashcard.]
    I see something blue. [Hold your hand above your eyes as if you are searching for something.]
    Blue!
    I see something blue.
    Blue, blue, blue, blue...
    I see something blue.
    Find something blue! [Look around the room for blue items.]

    Yellow! [Hold up a yellow flashcard.]
    I see something yellow. [Hold your hand above your eyes as if you are searching for something.]
    Yellow!
    I see something yellow.
    Yellow, yellow...
    I see something yellow.
    Find something yellow! [Look around the room for yellow items.]

    Red! [Hold up a red flashcard.]
    I see something red. [Hold your hand above your eyes as if you are searching for something.]
    Red!
    I see something red.
    Red, red, red, red...
    I see something red.
    Find something red! [Look around the room for red items.]

    Purple! [Hold up a purple flashcard.]
    I see something purple. [Hold your hand above your eyes as if you are searching for something.]
    Purple!
    I see something purple.
    Purple, purple...
    I see something purple.
    Find something purple! [Look around the room for purple items.]

    Blue. [Point to something blue.]
    Yellow. [Point to something yellow.]
    Red. [Point to something red.]
    Purple. [Point to something purple.]
    I see colors everywhere. ♫
