You cannot just come in and put the “outdated” tag on some players.

Think rationally. Which age group is performing well in matches? Is that experience only? No. I believe this particular batch had the proper training and learning methods which let this particular generation of cricketers keep contributing so late in the career.

The next generation simply lacks the skillsets - their upbringing did not get proper methodology. Their technique insufficient, only shines in one areas. A lot of them came and faded away. Few of them sustained but only for specific formats, not much because of their performance more because we could not develop better replacement for that role.

What I think the Ash-Shakib generation (since 2007 WC) is the best we could get, the most capable generation. We still have time to utilize this crop of players and gain something internationally.

Once they are gone I have really little hope to be able to gain anything after 5 years from now once they start to retire fully.
