    Yeah, but that's the whole point of it. So you can have a guess and see if it works out.

    Bit of a random NZ team, but:

    Todd Astle
    Jesse Ryder
    Ross Taylor
    Peter Fulton
    Kane Williamson
    Jacob Oram
    Brendon McCullum
    James Franklin
    Daniel Vettori
    Jeetan Patel
    Corey Anderson

    Very youthful - too youthful in fact, but food for thought.

    True, but if you could pick your team using players around today for 4 years time??
    Proud to be a Colt!

    M Hopgood: Followed up his debut century with a half century. Most likely the most impressive begin to a List A career by a Colts batsman in their history. In fantastic form at the moment, and will look to transfer that form into the first class arena. 8/10

    Isn't Anderson 16? as the future of our fast bowling I think the selectors will be very careful with him. I would hope so anyway. Same goes for Williamson. I hope Jesse Ryder comes good though, I believe someone on here said he had more talent than Taylor but had a poor attitude. I don't know much about Todd Astle though, is he a relative of Nathan by any chance?

    I'll take a stab-in-the-dark at England...

    Trescothick
    Benning
    Afzaal
    Pietersen
    ?
    Flintoff
    Read (I'd go for Pothas if he was just a couple of years younger)
    Mascarenhas
    Tom Smith
    ?
    ?
    (I'm not fool enough to think there's the slightest chance of RMJ being picked)

    But it's every bit, and I mean every bit, as likely we'll be fartaessing around for the next 4 years with the Onionses, Amjad Khans and whoever the next Mahmoods are (those probably right now playing for Burnley and Uppingham Seconds). The whole English attitude to one-day cricket needs to change (and not just from the selectors), and until it does we won't get anywhere. We need batsmen who are capable of scoring runs, not just playing shots (and not just to pick those who are good in Test-cricket), and seam-bowlers who can bowl line and length, not be perceived wrongly as "wicket-takers".

    Fair enough. They would probably think your ideas were a bit too radical. After all, since when have run scorers and accurate bowlers ever been needed in ODI's?

    My guess would be that those 3 useless entities would have finally run-out of time by then.

    Actually, TBF Arafat's not certified useless yet, but I can't see him amounting to much really.

    That top three looks depressingly like our flops from this year. Bell and Cook might turn into one day batsmen in the next four years but not Strauss IMO - Benning should get a chance soon and hopefully can turn into the new Tresco we need (especially as the curent one's problems might come back). I have doubts about Freddie - will he be bowling at full pace by 2011 or will he be a batsman who bowls a bit like Collingwood is now? And if that is what he is, is he good enough to be just a batsman at ODI level? This WC suggests not - so I'd have Bopara in there instead. And for the sub-con we'll probably need two spinners so I'd have Rashid (hopefully he'll prove himself by then) as a wrist spinner who bats, if not him then Dalrymple - instead of Plunkett. Mind you England's team is a nightmare to predict - in the last two WCs we've come up with players (Anderson, Nixon) who hardly anybody would have put in their WC XIs four MONTHS before the event, never mind four YEARS!!!
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....
