    Smith will be the next one. Doran will get the mark though in the future.

    Isn't Johnson considering retirement ? Don't think he will get there

    Can we at least wait until he's completed his first FC fixture before anointing the bloke FFS?!

    He's been talking up Doran as our test number 3 for the past year.

    Inb4 still struggling to average 40 in FC cricket in five years time, a la every Great White Hope of the current era.

    No doubt he won't be able to sustain this. Promising signs albeit against an atrocious Queensland bowling outfit.

    I suppose one positive for him is that he's not just a grinder or an accumulator, he can actually play shots to get his runs. Might end up leading to him getting out sometimes, too, but at least he probably won't get tied down a heap either.

    Warner, followed by Smith.

    Others won't make it IMO to 100 games.

    Warner for sure.
    Just don't think Johnson's body will get him to 100.

    Warner, Johnson's form won't see him get to 100.

    I'm bemused, doesn't anybody think Lyon will get to 100 on his current output? I can't see him getting dropped.

    Warner, Smith and Lyon unless a younger and probably leg spinner comes into the side.

    Reckon Warner won't make it. Don't see him playing to 35.

    Just don't see his style holding up as he ages. Unless the current dearth of talent continues, I think the runs will dry up and he'll be forced out before he cracks 100 Tests.

    Guess we'll see.

    Another few years down the track and having a revisit of this one. Gaz looks on track. Will get there comfortably before anyone else if things continue as you would expect.

    Warner is still a decent chance I think. If he gets back in before the Ashes then he only needs 2-3 years in the side to get there.

    Smith will get well past it you'd think.

    Prompted by my original post getting a 'like', three years on, Dean has played zero Tests, and has a career Shield average of 33.51 (6 hundreds, 8 fifties, 8 ducks).

    Just so it doesn't get lost forever (CricInfo don't make it easy to find on their website), you can find the career records of every player to ever play Shield cricket here.

    Best thing about getting even one first class game is knowing that when you peg it you'll get a bell in Wisden.
