HP program got the first generation of young talents after we got the test status. Those players were some what professional from the very early age and got good training from the very beginning. These players very easily got into national team in place of the players who started playing in pre-test era. Though the current (age group, NCA) players are also getting good training and BCB is organising tours for them similar to HP program did but it will not be easy for them to replace current national players (both groups have proper training from very early age). I still do not understand the difference except of having a foreign coach.
