People used other sports (for example basletball) in the example. So I am using the same here. There are plenty of examples in Basketball, and Football (American Sports) and Baseball where its well known fact that over use with small life span shorten their career. Byt hey, may be cricket is different, may they don't don't need to use their body the way they use in basketball/football/baseball.

Thats where I respectfully disagree that's why it prompted me to write in the first place. It not 'always' there are other factors that makes it more complexed than that.

How can someone say that he has crossed his peak at the age of 23 and still continuing to play? The player 'B' could just be a rotten mango in the basket whom we expect to reach peak (Assumed Standard), but may not be worth it, that's assumption and gambling.
I added the average factor also to clarify their performance. Player A may be game winner but he may not be a performer most of the time in his career, that's why his average is still low 20s. On the other hand player B may not be a match winner yet but that does;t mean he is less of a performer than plater B. That hy his average is slightly above player A. Now does it makes sense?

I guess not. Thats ok.

You are right. thats why to me there is no point to hope for improvement in player A. And as Player B is still unknown factor, I can still hope and see and wait and only tater in his career I can re revalue.

I didn't raised the issue who should be and who shouldn't be in the team. In reality we have both type of player in the team, whether we like it or not. This all came with the issue how much we can expect a player to grow and how much age plays a role.





Any thanks for you comment. Its always goos to see another POV to conter my POV.
