Unlike the players of every other Test-playing nation, the majority of Bangladesh's top cricketers are not products of the domestic first-class competition. Instead, they have either earned their place in the side by performing well in the limited-overs Dhaka Premier League, traditionally the most popular and lucrative event, or have been picked up straight from the Under-19s and exposed to the big time. The concept of an A or a B team to ease these youngsters into the top level is virtually non-existent, and that's why so many teenagers and twentysomethings walk into the Bangladesh team without anyone knowing if they are ready.
I found this very interesting. Bangladesh needs to do something about this because this might be the main reason why Bangladesh is failing so badly.
