  1. This boy never fails. I hope he gets out of here sooner than later, both of them, for their own sake. They should be in academies in India, Australia or the U.K. as history has shown us that is only those who get out will be able to dominate the world stage. Currently we do not have the capacity to get these great players to the next level. That should be the discussion right now. Although one can point to Lavern Spencer, however she did have a lot of her training overseas. Also consider the highly technical nature of cricket. Hope i can get some support on this.
