I'm very excited about the young quicks...yes they will be often injured. But we seem to have a golden era of quicks again. Consider the following:
Steyn, Siddle, Gul, and Anderson are the elder statesmen and all 29 years old or younger.
Zaheer and Martin are on their last legs, but solid pacers who have a couple seasons left.
Then there is Broad, Roach, Bresnan, who are young and have lots of potential.
There there are the rookies who have loads of upside: Yadav, Aaron, Cummins, Pattinson, Bracewell, Brownlie.
The stocks look as good as they have in a long time. I hope they can all stay healthy and develop to their potentials.
