A few future prospects for Australia, all Victorians of course, but I just can't help myself.

Michael Klinger, an opening batsman he is presently making runs by the bucket load. Only 25 years old and if his form continues, Cricket Australia might be forced to find a spot for him in their lineup.

Gerard Denton, a fast bowler who is having a good year with the ball. Although he is 30 years of age, I think he would be a very good short term prospect in the one day team. Denton had to stand out of cricket during his earlier years due to ongoing injuries that plagued him, but appears to have overcome these now and resurected his career. This bloke is a very good bowler who enjoyed great success against the World XI and has the potential to worry most batting attacks and can keep the runs down when necessary.

Adam Crossthwaite, a very talented keeper /batsman who broke into the Victorian team at a young age and I think this will be Australias keeper in about 4-5 years thereabouts. This kid would have to be the fittest wicketkeeper I have ever seen and has an eye like an eagle. Very quick on his feet, he is one of the only keepers who I have ever seen who often stands up to the wicket for the fast bowlers. Pencil this kid in as an Aussie incumbent for the future.

Turn it up mate. Everyone knows that the Aussie team is really just another name for NSW. (IMG:http://abcofcricket.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Let's not forget that Phil Jaques will be opening for Australia as soon as Langer or Hayden drop off the perch. Bracken and Clark both have a foot in the door of the national team, not to mention the next national keeper Brad Haddin.

And I hear this young up and coming batsman called Michael Clarke could get a call up in the national team some time in the future, once he's sorted out his technique ... (IMG:http://abcofcricket.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

You never mentioned ONE Bushranger ya bugger. (IMG:http://abcofcricket.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/omfg.gif)

FYI, neither Bracken or Clark are being looked on as long term prospects. Tait is the man penciled in.

Phil Jaques....I definitely agree, but ONLY if he moves to Vic. (IMG:http://abcofcricket.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Haddin will likely be the next keeper, but with Crossthwaite, you better pencil him in for the future, he's still just a kid at 21, so although my estimate may be a little premature, I'd still punt on him making it.

Clarkey is definitely on his way back, he just got the mandatory Sheffield Shield shakeup that most of our incumbents have experienced in the past.
