OK. Lets say we find some 'Medha'. What happens to these medhabi cricketers? Do they get nurtured? Sent to participate elite training programmes? Or they are just a flash in the frying pan. How many of these finds made to the national team? We have enough collction of medha (potential) already. Lets groom them first before wasting our limited resources on some publicity stunts.

Ignoring persistent rain, players came in numbers to be noticed in the talent hunt programme titled 'cricket medhar khoje' at the Madaripur Stadium yesterday.

Over four hundred participants from different parts of the district gathered at the local stadium to prove their ability in front of a selection panel consisting of renowned coach Jalal Ahmed Chowdhury and former national captain Khaled Mahmud and many others.

Before Madaripur, the search has already taken place at Kishoreganj, Sunamganj, Habiganj, Brahmanbaria, Patuakhali, Jhalakathi and Bagerhat. The next rounds will be held at Kushtia on June 1 and Magura on June 2.
The Chittagong round will start on June 5.

Here is the full story (http://www.bangladesherkhela.com/default.asp?strrefer=displayocr&straction=headline&iItemID=19993&iCategoryID=1&iColumnistID=).

The idea is to develop cricketers from places that are usually neglected by BCCB. Sujon, Durjoy, and, Jalal Younus, along with other cricketers like Rokon, Saiful Islam, and Fahim Muntasir, will form an HP unit that will select 30 cricketers from different parts of the country. Later that group will be trimmed to 15 players.

My guess is that those cricketers will be eventually placed to play for different Dhaka clubs.

I don't think the goal here is to find potential players for the national team, it has to do more with bringing up the standard of cricket in underdeveloped parts of Bangladesh.

Have not we found Mashrafe on a talent hunt?

If you are talking about the pacer hunt conducted last year, some of the discovered bowlers have already found their ways into different Dhaka premier clubs, even in divisional sides. Don't you think it is too early to expect any of them in the national team at this point?

Also, don't narrow your vision to the national team, our overall cricket infrastucture still has a long way to go. Many low budget Dhaka clubs depends a lot on this kind of talent hunt to make competitive teams.

Sujon, Durjoy, and Jalal Younus- all three are known for talent spotting, I have my confidence in them that they know what are they up to.
