Default Pace Pipeline

It is no secret our pace attack is in bad shape. And because we dont have a strong pipeline, there is no competition, and any injury forces selectors to push youngsters like Abul Hasan who are raw and have very little experience in the deep end. And as we all know it often end up too well.

But the thing is there are bowlers in our pipeline who are capable of pushing for a place in the side. Not saying they will be top quality, but at least they can push for a place and stir up some competition. Some of them might be young emerging bowlers. Some who have never broken into the team, and some who played for the NT in the past but are out of contention. These guys need the right coaching and support-maybe through a pace academy. And coaching not before a series, rather on a long term basis like how Indian and Sri Lankan pacers are trained. For some reason the older our pace bowlers get, the more they get out of contention. Its a contrast in other parts of the World. For example: In Sri Lanka, Chanaka Welegedara and Dhammika Prasad have made their break in international cricket in their late 20's. Can you imagine our pacers playing beyond 25? Usually doesnt happen (Except Mashrafee). Talha Jubair for instance is still relatively young-26-27. Can you imagine making him a comeback? Probably never.

So lets use this thread to discuss how emerging, and more experienced Bangladeshi pace bowlers are faring in domestic cricket, A team matches, under 19 matches etc.
