Default Ian, you took the word right out of my mouth..

You are absolutely right ! Aftabs and Shahadats of Bangladesh need to play in Lancashire, Staffordshire, Durham leagues. Believe me, they are high-standard leagues. Many a West Indian and Pakistani star started here. Many finished here too ! The rise of Pakistani cricket in the seventies, I believe, was entirely due to their young players getting experience in English conditions.

As the club-pro they will get prominence and hence, experience.

Living in England, I am more than willing to help out these lads in any way I can.
