A Fast Bowler should be maintained by the team. Captain has to use his Fast Bowler. Till now Bangladesh didnt show that kind of attitude towards any of our Fast Bowler. Masrafee, Shahadat everyone has talent but couldn't maintain well enough by team management.

Success of a Fast Bowler depends on some factors
1. Fielding placing by Captain
2. Quality of fielding of the team (Aus/SA is the example)
3. Performance/Support of the other side bowler. (Mcgrath provided to Lee/Imran provided Akram). After maturity a fast bowler starts to support other new fast bowlers.
4. Fitness (consist of Food Habit, Day to Day lifestyle etc), otherwise Injury will kill a fast bowler (Ex: Shoib Akhter)

Till now Bangladesh failed to maintain Fast Bowler. Thats why Mashrafee's average is not up to the mark in Test though he has got the capability. Shahdat sometimes bowl well but not consistent.
