yea yea yea heard this argument and replied too many times to bother doing it yet again. Because we all know it goes something like this:

Step 1: Can't drop Riyad bc we have no one to replace him.
Step 2: Can't give chances to youngsters bc they haven't proven themselves.
Step 3: they haven't proven themselves bc they can't get game time.
Step 4: They can't get game time bc we have guys like Riyad holding their spots.
Step 5: But we can't drop Riyad bc we have no one to replace him.
Step 6: Lather, rinse, repeat
An impregnable logic. An unstoppable logic cycle. It's like a monster that eats its own sh*t.

In other words, literally any youngster is a better gamble than a 30+ year old bolod who's only contribution to BD tests has been 1 century a decade ago. But hey let's not only keep him in the squad, let's also make him bowl in tests because he once bowled a couple of good overs in a bush league T20 BPL.
