    I can't even predict our side for the WC let alone 2019
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Nope. I'm going on the basis that Neesham is a better batsman outside of slogathon cricket and will eventually show himself to be the better option as a test all rounder. Admittedly Anderson has played better to date on the West Indies tour, especially with the ball.

    Potentially good times for NZ cricket if 7/8 players from our current team will be there until 2019.

    I would have thought they'd aim to play both, especially if Neesham's bowling develops to make him a genuine third seamer as well as a handy #6 bat.

    I don't see how they can, unless one really develops with the ball or they both become genuine batsmen.

    Neesham has great raw tools to become a good bowler - height and pace, but he's erratic and I think ultimately will almost be like Greg Blewett - capable of 140kmh but just not good enough to trouble international players.

    Anderson seems to be more developed as a bowler, but his issue will always be injuries, he's young but has already gone through serious back issues and other joint problems.

    I think Mitchell will flank the both of them as a better option with the bat and won't give away too much with the ball either, but again, that's on the basis that I think Anderson will struggle at test level with the bat in the next few years.

    Tests:

    Dhawan
    Zol
    Pujara
    Kohli
    Rahane
    R.Sharma
    N.Ojha
    Rasool
    Bhuv
    I.Sharma
    Yadav

    Rahul, I.Pandey, P.Ojha, Jadeja might be around I guess

    Really hard to guess the new batsmen that will come in, you could fill an entire XI of batsmen that look like they have tons of potential.

    Isn't Ojha over 30?

    It's interesting that you've both got Sharma in your squads - I thought the sentiment in India was that he owed his career to Dhoni? Me personally, I think he's still highly talented and has a lot of potential, he should focus on "What do I need to do to make us successful overseas" because his bowling action really suits NZ and England and could be tuned to South Africa and Australia.
