shakib and rahim were very young when they debuted to and look at them 2 of BD's best, nasir and rubel were both under 20 as well when they got the call-up. so even though some talents come in young and turn out not so good, the ones that have become our best players have also come in very young. most have come in younger than anamul is and they've turned out quite well and are still improving. even naeem, he's 25 now and made his debut in 2008 so he was 20 when he debuted.

BD is in a very unique situation, you can't really compare BD to other cricket nations when it comes to selection and development of the team because in other countries they're structure is very well developed and the talent is generally about the same generation to generation give or take a great player or two.

in BD the structure isn't very good, the cricket hasn't been taken very seriously and the talent generation to generation is still improving. tbh the BD selectors have one of the toughest jobs in world cricket and it's still tough because their selection policy is constantly changing and this is mainly due to domestic quality and coach quality.

but i think finally the domestic quality and talent in BD cricket is getting to a level where the selectors can start looking at performance and consistency a lot more rather than pure talent which is what they've had to go for over the last decade.
