This infrastructure is NOT so much a bad idea, I agree. However, I also believe that cricket is played the wrong way around the globe. The right way to play is create a private league and make the game played through private franchises (e.g. NBA in the USA). For example players like Jason Gillespie is no more making the cut in the Australian team; however, he can make a serious contribution for the Bangladesh team. Following are my 2 cents into the mix:

1) Think long term to establish Private Leagues (Test/ODI/20-20)
2) Also think long term to significantly reduce powers of national cricket boards. Cricket Australia, BCB and ECB should be more an advisory board for the game in respective countries.
3) Have private investors pump in money and that will create the path of infrastructure. Only real money will bring the brightest people playing the game.

Dissapointing that the world is not thinking the right way for cricket. I was hoping folks at banglacricket would at least propagate the vision.
