When you say that, you are considering both BD and WI having an equally in efficient system of development in place. That's not true, so that guy in WI has a much better chance of turning into a great player even having lesser potential than the guy in your example.

Look at the guys in their adhoc squad that we have beaten in their backyard, during players' strike... See, some of them have improved so much to find a place in their national team in various formats. While our players are still the same in quality and we are still looking towards new players... Our system doesn't improve a player, it's inefficient. If someone like Shakib improved, it's not the credit of the system.
