You are not going to develop discipline and focus bowling only in nets, you need to play real matches for that.

By playing more matches your body will be better conditioned, and will have less chance of injury when you come to the national team.

2) Prepare hard bouncy pitches that will have something for everyone - pacers, spinners, batters. 4 out of 6 divisional stadiums should have bouncy pitches (we still need couple of low-slow pitches so that our players learn to handle those kind too). Couple of them should have green tops too to encourage seam bowlers.

WI produced fast bowling greats when they had hard bouncy pitches. Now that their bouncy pitches are gone, so has their supply of quality pacers.

3) Last but not least, give good breaks in between domestic league matches (look how spread out Sheffield Shield matches are). Pacers take long time to recuperate. By stacking up matches, you are going to burn them up early in the season. I believe this is the reason our pacers show inconsistent form in domestic leagues and get frequently injured.

Also, by not stacking up matches, you will give curators needed time to maintain pitch quality.
Thanks War Wolf for the thread.
And thanks Eshen for the solutions which are fantastic.
But BCB analysts, directors and managers are some dumbest incompetents on earth.
Jamies Siddons, when he came to Bangladesh as a coach, made a bouncy pitch of granite stones for batting practice.
BCB knows how badly we need a bouncy pitch for our pacers' development but still we do not have one because of the political appointments of these incompetent BCB directors, planners and strategists.
That is why they break their promise and waste millions for the politicians and their honeymoon in WI.
