Poor Faisal Hossain seems to have become the most popular example of a successful domestic player not making the cut at international cricket. But to be fair, the man played one Test match and a couple of one-dayers. Same with Moniruzzaman. Gooch scored a pair in his first Test. I'm sure a lot of other successful international batsmen have done the same. To be fair on Faisal, we expected too much. We thought he would walk into the Bangladesh side and start cracking centuries. Aftab made a relatively slow start at international cricket as well but I feel that he is going to come of age within the next year or two. We shouldn't continuously beat up on players who got thrust into international cricket and then kicked out because they didn't make an immediate impact. No all players do that!
