    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I'd call it 90%. Always an outside chance of injury, but I doubt his wife's illness will still be keeping him from the team in 12 months time, and I also doubt he will retire.

    yep you might as well, but most likely neither would get picked anyway, but still good options to have.

    MacGill should be picked after the debacle last Sunday. People say his batting and fielding is a concern in ODIs, but I ask you this - how often does the number 11 bat for Australia when he is really needed to win a game? I can think of once this summer and that was two games ago...

    yea after sunday's game now i would agree. But the thing againts him now is that their is still a possibility that Warne could come out of retirement.

    You're dreaming if you think Warne will return. He has already ruled it out.

    ha, nah mate even though he has ruled it out, the overall possibilty of him making a last minute return cant be ruled out totally just as yet..

    Where did he rule it out? I've seen him say several times precisely the opposite... that is, "I'm not ruling it out".

    I think what he wants is a selection guarantee for the World Cup. It would be silly for Warne to come out of retirement for the 2007 VB Series, play a few games and then miss the WC in favour of Hogg.

    Given Warne's love for the big occasion and the media spectacle, I wouldn't be especially surprised if he did come out of retirement. I wouldn't bet on it happening either, but I certainly wouldn't say there's 0 chance.

    I do recall him ruling it out recently, not sure where I read it but I surely did.

    Still, that doesn't mean he won't come back. In the heat of the moment when Australia needs him for the World Cup, he might just get tempted. Or not.

    Dan Cullen is definatly a future prospect i could not see someone like Nathan Hauritz or that guy that replaced Hoggy for WA playing for Australia replacing guys like Warnie and MacGill.

    Warne, I think, ruled out a comeback before the WC. He didn't rule out a comeback for the WC.

    All the same, it is highly unlikely that he will return for the WC.

    Knowing Warne, you really think so? I'd say there's at least a chance.
