Reflexes, ability to move quicker and see faster, diminishes with age and bagful of experience at that stage matter little. Just ask Habibul Bashar, who BTW did very very well when he was not 'experienced'!

Good read though Gopal bhai..
I respectfully disagree with the higlighted statement beamer bhai. It's all about how you lead your lifestyle. Nutrition, regular strength exercise, not atrophying certain muscles, no smoking or drinking alcohol can lead to an individual who can be as healthy as a young man. Of course, the embedded videos are anomalies but that's because most people dont take pains to follow the regiment that will keep them fit even in old age. In cricket how about Shane Warne's brilliant reflex caught and bowled catch @ the last IPL or the turns he produced even at that ripe age? Andrew Weil wrote a great deal about staying healthy and strong even at old age and it all boils down to the continual strengthening of neurons or snapses...

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.
