of course we're going to be WIP, although progress has been slow and frustrating, we are progressing, and by no mean can you expect us to a world class team.
Whatever you say still don't justify our misery and their progress.
And what do you mean by 'World Class' ? Ain't we a Test playing country ? Ain't we playing 26 years of ODI cricket and 12 years of Test Cricket ? If i don't expect our team to be a world class team by now, then when ? We still get labelled as 'Minnow' along with other non test playing nations. Tired of listening 'giant killer', 'work in progress', 'bright future', 'team of talents' terms !!
