It would seem to me that if an organization wanted to seek out an untapped area from which to develop talent, that organization would set up academies on the Indian subcontinent, given its massive population and the popularity of cricket. I had a Nepalese student who was a good cricket player. He had never previously held a baseball bat, but the first time we took him for a softball game, he was making solid contact and crushing massive frozen ropes and moon shots.

The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
