Now there are some exceptions like Bill Gates (Sobers type). They are the college dropouts. I wonder how many we have in our (BD players) ranks.
I feel I'm a bit more qualified to talk about "diploma mills", after all I was part of one. A school is only as good as it's students are. Fill the IPL with Dhaka Premier League players, and the cricket you will see won't be any better than Dhaka Premier League cricket.
