Young bowlers just starting out will need a couple of years to develop and not just a half a dozen games before being dropped. Some will start off well and have blips and others will start off slowly and get better but they have been identified because they have something different to offer in all conditions around the world.

I don't agree that they must just play county cricket until they are ready because the first thing to go will be their speed. What English fast bowler is going to bowl 500 overs at 90mph throughout the season. They should play some county cricket but not stay there until they are the finished article. If you have two experienced bowlers in Test cricket there is a need to bring a young bowler through to learn from their experience. We had Caddick and Gough and Hoggard was the young bowler. SA had Donald and Pollock with apprentice Ntini and now it looks as if it will be Pollock and Ntini bringing through Steyn. England at the moment have 3 bowlers roughly the same age. No one is being brought through in Tests and I think Moores wants more experienced bowlers in the ODI's.
