Agree and mind boggling too, however it is not the defeats (which is expected considering our position reltive to the opponents).It is the quality of our cricket and the manner it is approached.
I think it does no harm to discuss the possibilities open to us to improve our game.
Test status cannot be taken granted and our development certainly will not be on autopilot. There were suggestions earlier on about having foreign players in our leagues even though certain people are hostile to suggestions of them becoming more involved in our cricket. Why not explore the missing ingredients. Issues to be addressed.
