The Future Australian ODI Team?

Micheal Clarke captained Australia to a 211 run mauling in a practice match against the University of the West Indies Vice Chancellor's XI.

There was no Hayden and Gilchrist at the top. Instead it was the IPL stars - Shaun Marsh and Shane Watson.

Brothers Micheal Hussey and David Hussey were part of the middle order. There was no Ricky Ponting.

Allrounders Cameron White and James Hopes, followed by wicket keeper Luke Ronchi made up the late order.

The pace attack was made up of Bracken, Johnson, and Clark.

With Symonds playing instead of either White or Hopes, and Lee instead of Clark, this could very well be the Aussie ODI side that we get accustomed to seeing over the next few years.

Yes I do believe that Ricky Ponting will be replaced as ODI captain sooner rather than later and that Hayden will hang up his boots sooner rather than later.

Ronchi / Haddin is a 50-50 though.

Australia's future then?

    Future surely looks good for Australia. However, they are not the only team to have a good future. Teams like SA, India have a very good chance to replace them at the top.
