The problem with BD selection is that you don't have to do anything extraordinary to get in. Most of our batsmen got in simply because they impressed the selectors with a good technique at an early age, but were never really deadly in the domestic leagues. Unless you are destroying opposition bowlers' careers in domestic cricket, you will not be able to do well in the international arena, which is a lot tougher.

However, among the current generation batsmen, I thought Nafis, Rajin and Ash are brilliant examples of people who actually did prove themselves before being included in the national team.
