I don't disagree with you Gopal. Just in the context of BD cricket, I think the 10 year learning curb is not practical. Off course, the advancement of sports medicine and other regimented lifestyle that go with it has improved tremendously, thus extending the life span of an athlete. In a super comepetetive professional world, the aging veterans are competing better with younger athletes because of that. Since they are able to stay fitter for longer, some of them are actually benefitting from the 'experience' factor. In our case, its not applicable, at least not yet. The aging factor is visible on the field for our atheletes. As with everything, we have to compress the learning curb period, if we want to stay afloat among other nations ( cricket ) that already had decades long head start.
