This has been true for many cases.
Now Imagine the possibilities when we include sporting pitches and NCL further improves....
I agree that NCL stats haven't been total flukes. Naeem and Gazi are recent examples of that.
Watching Nazim bat though, I just don't see him succeeding. I'd really love to be proven wrong though.
I agree with you on raising the quality of the pitches in the NCL in order to have a better competition.
