Exactly! It took Tendulkar many a innings before he got his first hundred. This is the risk you take with debuting very young players just based on pure talent: There is an element of risk involved. The selectors chose not to take that risk for tests and we saw what happened. It is all about the desire to learn and the ability to Adapt, Nasir Hossain is a great example of this.
