Pompous, I agree with you completely. I too am glad to see the BCB actually spending time/effort/money to improve the professionalism of our cricketers..

A recent article on Cricinfo speaks about this in the context of the current series.
India have this almost sewn up because they are clearly the hungrier side. That had much to do with the fact that, under John Wright, they have embraced professionalism. Pakistan remain a ramshackle outfit, rooted in the amateur era, with no qualified fitness trainer and no concept of discipline. On the other side of the world, England have dominated the West Indies for precisely the same reasons.
The link - Triumph and defeat

- Z

ps. The Aussies are the consumate professionals - that's why they are the best.
