When you see them playing tests, you can instantly understand that they are simply going through the motions. You can immediately feel the lack of any intrinsic motivation.
The two key players for tests are also the two players that play global t20 leagues. So obviously they want to preserve their bodies for the t20 stint that brings bucket load of money for their family. We should accept this reality and pick the test side from the people that actually play first class cricket. We need to pick bowlers and batsman with the best FC record. Once others see that performing in FC actually results in a national team debut, ppl will try that much harder. Right now if you are a pacer you know that no matter what you do the selectors will pick rubel and shafiul in the end. This needs to change. We will propably struggle at the beginning but eventually we will have a decent test squad with this approach.
