Default Good Time For Some A-Team Action

What happened to A Team tours? Or inviting A and development teams from other countries. If i am not mistaken the last A Team tour was to India in July/August last year and we also invited a West Indian development team. It just doesnt seem enough. A Team cricket is vital as it keeps the player pipeline strong. Good chance to test emerging players, players on the fringe, underperforming players, youngsters etc.

Now we have had some good finds in BPL- Shabbir, Shamsur, Milon etc. Its always best to give these guys a go with A Team before selecting them for the NT. This way they rectify any shortcomings they might have, work harder, try to prove themselves even more. Knowing our selectors they ll probably just push them into the NT. They underperform and they get dropped.

Note India is always arranging matches like India Vs Rest Of India. India Vs India A V India B. Even if we cant tour abroad or invite teams, at least such matches will work.

So hope BCB organizes more A Team, Development XI tours to give the emerging players a run. And now that BCB is saving some $ by not hiring a high profile coach, they could use that to hire a good Under 19 coach and a permanent A Team coach. If they dont want to look abroad, at least good for some good local coaches. Aminul, Salahuddin would be excellent choices.
