    I voted for Michael Clark. He might have some potential.

    More importantly, who is Jeromine Taylor?

    In 2003 I would have voted Smith. It would probably still be the right choice since he was better than Clarke when they were both young :o)

    I would have probably gone with Yasir Hameed, Anderson or Smith back then. I've never really thought highly of Lokuarachichi so I'm surprised to see him on the list.

    Didn't watch cricket at all back then. Probably knew about 10 players names in all.

    How young does one have to be to get a shot at this atm? Would vote for Pujara if <25 is the requirement, or Pattinson if we go younger.

    I'd be lucky to name any of them at that age. Although I took an interest in cricket at a young age I only really started to pay real attention by 13/14.

    Joe Root is 14, I think

    Bhanuka Rajapaksa might have a decent career at least in limited over cricket, if not tests.
