    2011?? Your team

    What will your countries team look like at the 2011 World Cup?

    I think the Australian team will look something like this:

    Shane Watson
    Brad Haddin
    Ricky Ponting
    Michael Clarke
    Andrew Voges
    Cameron White
    Moises Henriques
    Mitchell Johnson
    Shaun Tait
    Ben Hilfenhaus
    Dan Cullen

    What about Bracken, Jaques etc?

    NZ team

    Papps
    Vincent
    Taylor
    Fulton
    Styris (last WC for him)
    Oram
    McCullum
    Vettori
    Mills
    Patel
    Bond (cloned)

    Looks suspiciously like our current team which is good. Another four years playing together and hopefully they will improve alot.

    Taylor and McCullum will be the only players in that team under 30 in 2011. I'm hoping/praying some younger players will have come through and surpassed some of these guys by then

    I want the younger guys to come through too. Though if the guys I mentioned deserve their spots then thats fine too.

    If the younger guys that look like they could hack it at international level come through maybe a team like this:

    Vincent
    Ryder
    Taylor
    Hay
    Nicol( or Houpapa)
    Oram
    McCullum
    Vettori
    Mills
    Patel

    Australia 2011 (unless a few rising stars come up in the next few years):

    Shane Watson
    Chris Rogers/Adam Voges/Phil Jaques
    Ricky Ponting
    Michael Clarke
    Andrew Symonds
    Michael Hussey
    Brad Haddin
    Brett Lee
    Jason Gillespie
    Nathan Bracken
    Ben Hilfenhaus

    or you could have a spinner substituting Gillespie or one of the quick men but I doubt we'll find a decent one in the next few years. Another option would be to open with Haddin in Gilchrist-esque style but Haddin's quite a good finisher with Hussey as demonstrated in the DLF cup. Finally if Shane Watson doesn't shape up as a quality all rounder then I propose a specialist batsman to replace him at the top of the order.

    I suspect SL would look something like this at 2011

    BSM Warnapura
    Upul Tharanga
    Kumar Sangakkara
    Mahela Jayawardene (Captain)
    Chamara Kapugedera
    TM Dilshan
    MF Maharoof (hope the guy is remarkably improved by then or someone else has come along to replace him as an allrounder)
    Kaushal Lokuaaratchchi
    Lasith Malinga
    ? replacement for Vaas
    Muralitharan

    Unless Australia are planning on a first round exit , they would be better off not playing 4 seamers in the subcontinent...but then again in 2011 that is what they may be left with..

    Chamara Silva?

    Warnapura and Dilshan will do the 5th bowling duties, so Maharoof can play as bowler.

    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

    Utterly pointless trying to look this far ahead, so many things can happen that you cannot allow for or predict.
