Default Younger Players and Exposures

Note: Senior players and their contribution will be discussed separately. This is only for the up and coming young players.

We keep hearing that we are not giving them enough exposures. And due to that we will suffer tremendously once the senior bunches leave.

But I disagree that younger players are not getting opportunities. In fact, I doubt if we should even call some of them young anymore. Majority are in their mid 20s and north of that.

We lump all these players into the "younger category" and that is very misleading. So I am separating them below based on age and # of matches played.

In order of matches played: Test / ODI / T20

Group 1


Sabbir
11/53/41
Age 26
Debuted in 2014

Soumya
10/32/35
Age 25
Debuted in 2014

Mominul
19/26/6
Age 26
Debuted in 2013

Anamul
4/36/13
Age 25
Debuted in 2012

Group 2


Litton
10/12/12
Age 23
Debuted in 2015

Miraz

Age 20
14/10/9
Debuted in 2016

Mossaddek
Age 22
2/20/8
Debuted in 2016

----------

for comparison with younger players from other teams

LK Rahul (India)
Age 26
24/12/19

Kusal Mendis (SL)
Age 23
29/44/14

Babar Azam (Pak)
Age 23
13/46/20

----------

So clearly our Group A had enough exposures and has been in the international scene for almost 4-5 years. Group B does not provide a lot of hope either. So instead of Sabbirs/Soumyas/Anamuls maybe we should give more chances to Litton or can draft in even younger players like Shanto.
