Yeah i totally agree, the key thing is their ages though!!..
Powell= 22 (he just got his test first ton)
So bar Edwards many of them have the potential to vastly improve and play for another ten years or more, thats why i'm hopeful that our future is bright, same thing goes with the bowlers like Roach, Gabriel, Holder, Narine etc, their all 24 or below.
