i'm not surprised this fear is here, ash was a major talent that went wrong, we also had aftab and kapali who were pretty big talents, but BD cricket was in a different place, different results were expected, the occasional great innings and occasional win was ok back then, nowadays more is expected and even though BD still aren't great at developing talent they are better than they were back then when those guys first came through.
But Shakib, Tamim, Mushfiq, Nasir all debuted after AAA. Yes we have Imrul, Jahirul, Nazimuddin, but those guys were always "hard-working" types who lacked the inheret "talent" of the aforementioned. Also they came in on the back of a single season of domestic play.
