"While the rest of the country plays four-day games in the national championship, the Tigers members are either too busy touring or training in the camp. The only time they get to play the longer version is in the Tests. That tryst with fire is no way to improve your skill.
For any batsman or bowler, there's no substitute to match practice. Staying in the national camp deprives our top players of that vital confidence boosting opportunity to make a mark in the first-class form."
This concept of spending a lot of time in national camps while a domestic season is going on never made sense to me. Sure, the test team can get together for a week or two before a series, but the rest of the time they should be out there playing the domestic/first class leagues. That would give the national players competitive matches, and the league would improve from the infusion of these players.
