On a related note -

"Our head coach came to me and explained that since the pitches in the indoors are at least eight to ten years old, they don't benefit the pacers. He also wanted us to improve the facilities.

"When we went to Brisbane for our preparations ahead of the World Cup, our players trained at the Brisbane Centre of Excellence. The facilities there were excellent and the coach believes that helped the players ahead of the event," said Papon.

"So we have decided to build an indoor complex with world class facilities, akin to that in Brisbane, which will also include swimming pools and everything else which is required," he added.

Important to organize these, provided that we have the right set of eyes overseeing things. You never know we might end up finding some good talent. And i presume the talent base now will be better than when we last held this program.

But a pace hunt is only a tool. I d rather see BCB take a wider approach in developing a program. Chaminda Vaas is available. Bring him on a year long contract, he can do wonders with the younger bowlers. Dont leave everything for Heath Streak to do

Pacer hunt is for a country without a proper cricketing system or infrastructure...
It does not make sense in Bangladesh anymore.
Rubel and Shafiul were discovered using pacer hunt at the time when BCB did not have a proper age development system.
Now BCB has a list of all good young upcoming cricketers. They organise tournaments regularly and hardly a chance for a pacer to remain unearthed.

Pakistan is one established cricketing nation where pacer hunt would make sense since they still rely on talent to show up from streets and because of many reasons they do not have a good system in place.
