Default What to do....

2006/07 Oct-Nov AWAY: ICC Champions Trophy
2006/07 Oct HOME v India
2006/07 Dec-Jan AWAY v New Zealand
According to the ICC fixture, after the AUS series, we do not have any international commitment until the ICC Trophy. We are not playing any test cricket until December. The home series against lace India is not happening (am I right?). With such a long break from test cricket, our players might get out of touch! What do you think we should do? Here is what I think:

1. We should arrange for A-team series with more than one test playing nations simultaneously. Make two A-teams dividing the national players equally in both teams.
1a. Play these A-teams with other country’s A-teams in 4-day matches and One Dayers.
1b. Play these A-teams with the BCB Academy team and U-19s in 4-day matches and One Dayers. We could arrange for round robin league tournaments involving these teams and make it clear to the players that next team selection will be based on how they perform in these matches.

2. May be we should start our next domestic season earlier than scheduled (I know it will have slim chance due to the rainy season).

Please post your idea(s).
