Rahane seems to be India's Hom. Insane FC average, but fails at A team level with the once in a blue moon decent score (4th innings 80 odd vs RSA A).
Yes the India A unofficial test was zol's FC debut, and yes he did flop in the u19 World Cup where he was touted much like chand, though he's hit a purple patch of form in recent u19 matches.

You are right about rahane, had been insane in domestic FC cricket (don't think his recent season was as prolific, he was averaging high 60s and now its dropped to low 60s) but struggled at the higher levels.

Just goes to show you how much A team and international cricket is important in conjunction with domestic stats and not domestic stats alone. Most cricket fans don't get a chance to see the domestic stars with their own eyes, especially those of us who live abroad.

All the more reason why a guy like Anamul who has hit a century against WI in a real ODI should be persisted with for an extended run. As opposed to a guy like Kayes who had his run.

Also centuries against Associate sides shouldn't be cited as reason enough for a player being ready or worthy. Again depends on context. Aftab hitting a ton vs Ireland would't prove much, but Soumya hitting one against Afghanistan would.

Just my 2 cents.

yes A team and international cricket is also important, but i think for BD it's a bit different in that in some cases it might be worth giving some players in BD a more extended run in A team cricket than say an aussie or south african in A team cricket etc. given the standard of BD domestic cricket, the adjustment is greater and a bigger learning curve than for other nations so players may need more time to adjust and step up.

india have done it with rahane, you really have to go on a case by case basis as you explained with the aftab/soumya.
