I don't think Milon would be a good choice for the longer version of the sport, but he can be effective if used properly in T20Is. His hitting and now fielding abilities can make him perfect for that. Same goes for the others grouped with him.
Marshall Ayub, intelligent and aggressive, has come a long way and is still young enough to get better with proper coaching and international exposure. These guys are young, and writing them off so early doesn't make any sense to me at all. We have done that with typical results.
Look at the DOBs of cricketers from terst playing nations, their ages at debut, and the length of their A Team and FC exposure before that. Look at the quality of their domestic cricket also. Look at the norm before the exceptions, then assess how rational our typical expectations or subsequent trigger happy mentality really is with regards to our young guys.
Projection is easy. Working through issues with required patience seldom is.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
