In my opinion, the NCL players shouldn't be left at NCL level longer than two full seasons as Sohel bhai says it reinforces bad habits. That being said, the quality of NCL cricket will gradually improve as the players' qualities improve themselves. 75% of the players are still club calibre players. And that number jumps to 90% when the national team boys leave for senior tours.
of course we don't know for sure yet whether either of shuvagata or anamul have it, but both have been dominant in the NCL over the last couple of seasons. shuvagata has only played one match this current NCL and though he didn't get a century he did get a 50 so he hasn't failed completely, we'll see after this season where he is at, he wasn't too bad when he played those ODIs but hasn't got a chance since, of course if he does fail at NCL level then is quite possibly means he doesn't have it but he looked like he did in the ODIs and he's been consistent so far in the NCL. i agree that too much time purely in domestics can have a negative effect on the players.
