I don't know why we played him a few games and dropped him? Yes he didn't score but he is not the first to fail in his first few games. So what are we expecting? To suddenly become an improved player in the SL first class circuit?

We are still doing the tried, tested and failed process which goes as follows. Bring in a young chap and drop him because he doesn't score a 100 in his first few games. Recall an older failed player who will hold the spot for a while before he fails again. Bring in a second new players and ditto above. This is crazy and hasn't worked.

How about giving a young player an extended run in the hope he has a chance to improve at international level and hopefully he will deliver in a few years...say when he is 25. That still gives him 10 years to be a star.

In and out, a game here and there, up and down the order - how can this be the way to nurture talent unless the objective is to destroy.
