Salamu alaikum Farid.
List: Avila, Bhargava, Hairer, Mirzakhani

The only argument against this choice may be that Avila and Mirzakhani may be viewed as working in the same broad field. If so, then they would replace one of them, possible by Lurie. It would come down to balancing regional and topical distribution. The Boston (USA) interest group would push for Lurie, while Berkeley-Brazil alliance would push for Avila, whose case is well established and uncontested. The reason I beleive that Hairer is a strong possibility is that his area has never been given a Fields medal, and he has developed both new methods and a big new Theorem.
