This team is ageing and it’s concerning there’s not too much young talent coming through with the bat and spin. Who out of the current set up and in domestic cricket is going to be there you reckon?

9 of the top 10 current shield scorers are/will be 30+ by the time it comes around.

Just off the top of my head…

Gone/probably gone: Warner, Lyon, Starc, Khawaja, Smith, Cummins, Hazlewood

Possible ins: Hardie, Inglis, McSweeney, Green, Morris, Oliver Davies, Harry Dixon?

Surely you don't mean Chis Green?

Jhye and Young Puck will there hopefully fingers crossed when they are both fit Inglis the keeper and don't discount young Perry as the swing bowler for English conditions
Hopefully both of the first two. Would be great for us
 
Cummins is only 30. He'll still be there.


Bancroft
Renshaw/Hunt
Pucovski/Davies/Wyllie
Labuschagne
Head
Green
Inglis
Cummins
J. Richardson
Morris/Johnson
Murphy

tbh the hardest one to replace is Smith. Puc is so important for us.

Bolded are the hardest to pick. I suspect quick #3 will be a left armer of some sort. I doubt Johnson will be going around in four years.

I'd have Richardson/Morris as alternates.

Bancroft I highly doubt will be going around in four years, they don't want to pick him now.

Inglis is not a fait accompli as keeper either.
 
Pucovski shouldn't even have his name being thrown around right now. Has just come back to shield cricket and is struggling to string runs together. Let the guy just play for a bit.
 
Only one of the quicks still there would be Cummins. On tour may get joined by Morris, Spencer Johnson, J. Richardson, Xavier Bartlett, Last 3 well suited by English condition. Lyon will be good for one more. No issue with bowling. Batting though, no Ussie, Smith. 3 years is a long time so too hard to say who'll be in there replacing them as so much can change. Could be someone we haven't even seen at FC level yet. Not as "easy" as it is with the bowlers with no-one knocking down the door.

England won't have Anderson and Wood, and possibly Root. Their issue could well be bowling.

And just like that he's out of international selection for good.

McSweeney
Green
Head
Marsh
Carey
Cummins
Lyon
Bartlett
Buckingham

Inglis
Morris
Davies
Murphy
Labuschagne

I've left the opener spots open because no one, absolutely no one deserves to be named at this point. Renshaw is young enough but who knows? Bancroft will be 34, so who knows?

Bangers still young enough also Maddison keep a watch on ...if he finishes off the shield well and has a good shield season next year..he is batting well atm

3 years down the track though. Could be there or could be retired. If he is still going then, then I'd have him in, form pending.
 
I hope Jordan Buckingham keeps developing like he has the past two seasons, he could be an absolute handful in English conditions.
