because of international schedule we don't have that time...in the off season sometimes we do have 4-6 month layoffs, but then we have NCL.

rather it is more important that BCB takes the initiative to enroll 2-3 players in the national leagues of the top test nations. so if we have 3 guys in the counties 2nd XIs, 3 guys in india, 3 guys in SL and Pak, 3 guys in RSA, 3 guys in OZ, 3 guys in NZ and WI...then we can have 20+ guys getting top notch training, even if its for a month or so.

In don't think england has ever spent 6 months in australia. It's true that last year (2006/07)the England A team spent some of the winter in WA, but this was essentially to provide back up for the ashes sqaud.

This year an England development side spend some time in India pre-xmas and England A (aka "England Lions") will return in Feb to take part in the duleep trophy.

A BD development side spent most of October/November 2007 in Australia. But the quality of the opposition they played was not particularly good.

May be we should spend more time to improve our domestic league. First we need to transform this league into a profession league (not controlled by BCB). BCB should sell the teams to individuals or groups and concentrate on developing and arranging age group teams and tournaments. These tournaments should be high profile with appropriate media attention. For example, little-league (for under 11), junior cubs (for under 15) and senior cubs (for under 17) league. Besides, there should be a longer version tournament for the under 19 teams. There also should be college/university league supported by the university, alumni and students.

Nothing is gonna help the boys.
Its all in the head.

...And you dont need to travel to Australia to fix it.
You could do that right at home.

If Ashraful cant get his acts together even after 100+ odi's, what would a 6 months stint do ?

Its all in the head.

No substitution for just pure hard work on drills ie. throw downs till your backs, arms, legs, hurt...do it consistantly against the bowling machine. For every bad shot 5 laps around the field or 50 more catches. Our players have the raw talent, skills are missing. Hard to improve unless you play quality opposition but problem is if you show horrible performances at the int level nobody would want you to play for county, state, etc.
