A bit off-topic but I think the socio-enomomic background and cricket being the only-game-we-are-good-at have a lot to do with our cricketers losing their way early in their careers. They work really hard to get into team and make their place somewhat permanent. And by that time they earn some handsome money by BD standard and start chasing money forgetting their childhood dream to become national cricket heroes. As they gain easy fame due to cricket being the only sport we are good at, they attract sponsors easily and get busy with making commercials, becoming brand embassedors etc. Their focus shifts from becoming better cricketers to be rich men. They start opening restaurants and other business ventures which takes lot of time and focus away. The hunger for getting better everyday dies at that point. And the performance starts to decline. This has been the case for quite a few promising cricketers in recent years.
