Umm, not on the evidence of the current crop of international players... excluding a select few.

There is little transferable between modern white ball and test cricket now as they are so far apart in skill sets, mentalities and techniques required

The ICC rankings would suggest otherwise.  There are certainly specialist - Pujara for instance - but they are anomalies.  And certainly the modern game is moving in that direction.  Go back to the  90s and England stuffed the squad with bits and pieces alrounders who supposedly were limited overs specialists.  Move forward 2 decades and the test and odi squads contain many of the game players
