    I think most of the players will be available for 2015 - Hafeez, Kami, Malik, Farhat, Taufeeq and even Younis. Its just a case of picking the right ones. The only ones whom I can think will retire include Misbah, Afridi and probably Ajmal.

    Nasir, Shehzad, Shafiq, Umar, Amin/Sohail, Hafeez, WK, Gul, Riaz, Junaid, Hasan

    Even better if Umar Akmal takes the gloves permenantly in coloured clothing, this way there may be a case of an extra batsman or Hammad Azam in the side.

    I would like one solid fast bowling allrounder. Let it be Hammad Azam, Ehsan Adil, Anwar Ali, or someone else.

    Thats why we need to start grooming them. Even young U-19 allrounder Mohammed Nawaz(spin allrounder)

    Hope for the best, prepare for the worst :)

    No freaking way' The way Smith operates at the crease with a massive gap it just looks like he's going to be clean bowled all the time, But a great like him found a way to persist with it and managed to score runs. There are only a few players in the world for whom it works for and Babar ain't even played International cricket yet to be even thought of too be as good as Smith. :fp

    We've wasted 2 years on useless cricketers like Kmaran, Misbah, Malik, etc. Really don't see a solid lineup being put together by the tournament.

    2011 was a very good chance to build team for WC as we mostly played minnows after 2011 WC but they persisted with Younis,Misbah,Cheema etc.

    I remember Younis was mots in odi series against Zimbabwe... :fp

    They dropped Misbah before the WT20 and totally changed the squad. Why not just appoint someone else the captain now and make a new proper OdI Squad, Better now then never

    2015 will bring back memories of '92. We did not have a strong squad back then as well. The only worry is that we don't have an Imran now.

    As the WC is in Aus i think we might need Taufeeq there as well although its odis but he can do well with a solid technique. Nasir Jamshed, Taufiq Umar, Azhar Ali, Farhat all as openers in the squad for me

    ODI's: Adam Gilchrist (Wicketkeeper), Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting, Steve Waugh (Captain), Michael Clarke, Michael Hussey, Michael Bevan, Shane Warne, Brett Lee, Craig McDermott and Glenn McGrath.

    The tests one for me was really difficult because they've had such a fantastic test side over the years. Here's my pick though:

    Justin Langer, Matthew Hayden, Don Bradman, Ricky Ponting, Steve Waugh, Allan Border (Captain), Adam Gilchrist (Wicketkeeper), Shane Warne, Bill O Reilly, Dennis Lillee and Glenn McGrath.

    Symonds was a destructive player who used to bat at 6 he was a real beast... imagine Symonds walking in at 6 and Gilchrist at 7 gud luck to opposition u can replace him with Clarke though
