    How close was Bird to your team?

    Not that close. As well as the three that I named I think Hazlewood and Siddle (as well as others) would be more likely to make it then him. I rate him but there are better alternatives.

    I reckon our team will be much the same. Taylor and Ryder will be close to the end of their careers.

    Jeet Raval
    Hamish Rutherford
    Kane Williamson (c)
    Ross Taylor
    Jesse Ryder
    Corey Anderson
    BJ Watling (wk)
    Ish Sodhi
    Tim Southee
    Adam Milne
    Trent Boult

    Most optimistic pick there is Ryder. If he isn't in then Young or Latham imo.

    Yeah, I can't see Ryder lasting another 5 years. Who knows though.

    Would love for Milne to be in the team then, dunno why I picked Neesham there.

    Cook
    Robson
    Root
    Ballance
    Bell
    Woakes/Taylor/Bairstow
    Buttler
    Bresnan/Stokes
    Broad
    Kerrigan/Briggs/Patel
    JOverton/Mills/Topley

    Would quite like to see something like that. Have no idea really though.
    Carberry, Pietersen, Prior, Swann, Anderson will all definitely be gone by then.
    No idea who'll replace Swann.
    For all the other positions there are a dozen blokes with pretty similar cases for selection - I mean just as an opener you've got the option of moving Root up, bringing in Chopra, blokes like Reece and Lees. Hell, even Compton will only be a year older than Carberry is now.

    Pujara opening?

    And surely Ishant will **** off by then.

    Has the makings of a good team though. Might be better overseas than many Indian sides fielded.

    Yeah like I said, nfi about the batting order. In fact one of the openers is likely to be some **** from Tamil Nadu, they have heaps of them. BaaBoi Aparajith might make his way into the side as well.

    Ishant will only be ~30 and will have a stellar series against the Windies or Zimbabwe or something, leading to self proclamations that he's finally worked out his bowling for good and is ready to take the burden of being the spearhead for the Indian attack.

    Well no one else will post a SL team but I will anyway

    Dimuth Karunaratne
    Kaushal Silva
    Lahiru Thirimanne
    Dinesh Chandimal (wk)
    Kaushal Perera
    Kithuruwan Vithanage
    Angelo Matthews (c)
    Sachithra Seneneyake
    Seekkuge Prasanna
    Shaminda Eranga
    Suranga Lakmal

    Went for a 2 spinners line-up with Prasanna being the legspinner, I don't see their fast bowling stocks improving so I thought this would be a safer bet, was a toss up between Nuwan Pradeep and Lakmal but I thought Lakmal had a bit more potential because he can make the ball move a bit more. I highly doubt the opening combination will stay the same for 5 years but I really don't follow SL domestic cricket enough to know who else is in the frame, the middle order picked itself really.

    Maybe Sanath Jayasuria will make another comeback in 2018, who knows

    It will still be Dhawan with Pujara at 3 instead of Zol.. Jadeja will also be playing at that time instead of Ishant..Agree with rest of the team..

    If Smith is in the side in 2018 then he'll probably bat 4, being established and all that.
