If Shafi can learn how to swing it, with his pace he can be deadly.

Pont + Sultan of Swing = Super Good things

We badly needed a"spin coach" than to another pace bowling specialist along with Ian Pont. I believe, Pont has been doing good to understand our boys skill level and to work on improvement. I doubt what more benefits would give bringing Wasim as bowling coach.

i hope it does not turn into "too many cooks spoil the broth" !

Do you even know that Loitta did not consult with Pont before appointing Wasim as consultant ?? The news itself is not confirmed and yet you made your statement !!!

Even if Wasim gets appointed as consultant, his tenure may not be more than couple of weeks.

We need a thinking coach, e.g., Aqib Javed, if we want to hire a consultant badly. But, this might be an unneeded hire. Pont is doing well. Why unnecessarily change things.

wasim was one of the greatest bowlers but as a coach he is not very good. not so long ago he was bowling advisor of a team named KKR and i have seen bowlers with big name and fame like Shane Bond, Charles Langeveldt, Ishant Sharma, Ajit Agarkar, Angelo Matthews, Ashok Dinda, Javed Unatkat (India's latest bowling sensation) all bowling crap like golir bowler. also somebody named mashrafe was totally overlooked there.

the only reason a great bowler like Wasim still hasnt got any good job is because he is more interested in hosting or commentary rather than hard work of coaching in the field. also he is not really good as coach. thats why he preferes being only a consultant.

i am happy with IAN PONT. as long he is there no need to think of anybody else even if the battery of garner, holding, marshal, croft wants to coach BD free.

Just saw a special interview of Lotus Kamal at his home on ATN News, he confirmed that Wasim Akram has agreed to come as a bowling consultant, although the dates are not fixed yet. He said they are in talks with few renowned coaches for coming as a spin bowling consultant, he also informed that Ganguly might be brought again for the left-handed batsmen if JS doesn't have any prob with that!

Posted via BC Mobile Edition
Just because you don't see him in the national team doesn't mean I Pathan is wasted. He is doing fine in their local matches.

Pont may be a great coach with some experience, but I don't think he has as much as experience on Sub continent pitches/weather as Wasim. So Wasim's input for a week or two would be a good thing (if it happens).

With Flat pitches becoming a norm soon bowling will be the weakest link of the game.

nycpro96

If Wasim can show Shafiul and Rubel how to get some decent reverse and make use of dead pitches, which he himself had to do a lot, that's enough.

If this is true; this will be the best ever decision of BCB, in terms of selecting coaching staff.

There is no conflict between Pont & wasim working together. While wasim is working with the national team players, pont can be engaged with Academy/Age group. But what wasim can give, pont cannot & similarly pont can do what wasim won't like to do.

Jadukor
October 27, 2010, 01:34 AM
If wasim can share his knowledge of reverse swing and yorkers then it would only do good for our bowlers... but i still have my doubts about these consultancy positions because to develope any skills u need to spend time and short term stints rarely leave any desired effect...

Wasim did not destroy Irfan Pathan... BCCI and their insane scheduling of matches did... same thing will happen to Ishant Sharma as well...

beshideshi
October 27, 2010, 01:42 AM
Just to clarify, it wasn't Wasim who destroyed Irfan. It was Irfan who destroyed Irfan, trying to become an all rounder where as a bowler he had a spot engraved in the Indian XI. "Greed is (not)good"
And A consultant can hardly interfere with the coach's job, he will probably be at the training, give a couple of tips to the players and just give them talk about how to bowl in the sub continent region. I think he will do fine, BUT that is, if he is actually hired by BCB, we all saw how 'Saurav Ganguly helped' us during the English tour.

it was also a result of all the media hype surrounding him... this guy never really had the pace to be compared to wasim akram... he was bowling in the 130s which was slower than what wasim used to bowl even when he was aging.... at the international level swing without the right pace isn't effective because slower pace allows the batsman adjust to the swing... U really need pace as a swing bowler just like Waqar or Steyn....which Irfan never had

LBW103
October 27, 2010, 05:18 AM
What I don't get is Pont is ALREADY working with Rubel and Shafiul on swing and reverse swing. Rubel bowled many reverse swing balls in the last ODI. Shafiul got McMillan in the 2nd ODI with a beautiful out swing delivery he has learned from Pont.

Wasim Akram isn't going to give away any secrets is he? Pont will. Also Pont has coached Steyn and Akthar plus teaches the county players in England to reverse swing.

Wasim would just be a PR stunt where the BCB pay out money for what? We also rick annoying this Pont when he is doing so well.

yaseer
October 27, 2010, 06:02 AM
I hope the news is not true. It is just a waste of money. He was also a bowling consultant with KKR, what did he achieve there? He also worked with Irfan Pathan, any improvement? Not saying Wasim is a bad coach or something, but just a few weeks won't make any difference. Waste of money and time.

Tiger Manc
October 27, 2010, 07:23 AM
We need a spin bowling coach then a bowling consultant. This is a ridiculous decision from BCB. Siddons said that we need a spin bowling coach in sept I think. It would be interesting to know what razzak, shuvo and shakib think on whether they need further assistance or not.

Ajfar
October 27, 2010, 07:27 AM
We don't need a bowling consultant. Our pacers won't improve by spending a week or 2 with him. They need constant attention. And that's exactly what Pont is doing/ will be doing.

Rabz
October 27, 2010, 01:26 PM
I see no point to it.
Too many cooks spoil the broth.

What sort of magic formula he is gonna give the boys in 2-3 weeks that they would become world beaters ??

He's gonna walk as a mega star in the dressing room, tell the boys 'ye karo o karo' ...stay in a five star hotel, beat up his own drum a bit and then he's gonna jet off.

Remember the names Mohsin Kamal ?
They were recommended by Wasim Akram.
So, I dont know what good this guy is going to bring in the team other than few news article.

BANFAN
October 28, 2010, 03:21 AM
I'm sure Wasim has a lot to give and 2/3 weeks is enough to get it from him.
He will give some high performance skills to make the best use of Lines/lengths in different pitch conditions, swing, Reverses etc. Pont definitely knows how to do that, but the most effective use of these skills can only be taught by Wasim. Or it may take ages for the bowlers to learn through their own experiences.

Some people here just amaze me - what is all this talk of 'insulting' Pont by having Wasim as a consultant?

In any learning environment, the concept of having a 'guest' expert is perfectly normal. A somwhat off-topic example but back when I was doing my engineering degree, we would often have industry experts coming in as guest lecturers for a week or two even though we had highly qualified professors as regular lecturers!

While I do not completely agree with BCB's short-term adrenalin rush to excel at the world cup - when we clearly need quality coaches at the academy & age group levels - I believe even a two week stint with someone like Wasim, with all his skills & experience, can be of great help to our quicks. I would be absolutely surprised if I find someone as professional as Ian Pont would have an issue with it.

October 28, 2010, 11:57 AM
Specifics Wasim could teach in addition to what Pont professes to focus on:
Wrist position and attenuation during point of release
Best means to identify what type of wear-n-tear will give the most reverse swing; he has said that he and Waqar would spend hours at practice trying out different balls to figure this out
Ball management skills - e.g. how to bounce the ball in off the pitch to scuff it up, how to preserve seam in legal manners
How to combat a batsman's trigger movements or tactics to combat swing (e.g. playing out of the crease or shuffling across to get closer to away swing).

While Ian focuses on core skills, and repeatability of action and other bio-mechanical aspects, I think Wasim adding these advanced level seminars does no harm if managed right.

October 28, 2010, 12:14 PM

This is incorrect. There have been many, I repeat many, medium pacers who were dominant. Botham, Hadlee, Kapil Dev, Alec Bedser, Maurice Tate, etc comes to mind. No, I have not forgotten the 70-mph destroyer, McGrath.

Then there is the group of bowlers who were real speedstars in younger days, but became more effective at older age by using accuracy, variations, swing, etc although their bowling speed was lower. Lillie, Roberts, Holding, Marshal, Imran, and many others fall in this group. Jeff Thompson was much faster than Dennis Lillie, but he was not as effective a wicket taker. He was more feared, probably because of the injury risks. Many protective gears have not been invented yet.

mac
October 28, 2010, 01:02 PM
He is a lefty and born genius. Don't know how much effective he can be in teaching our right handed pacers. Technique of gripping the ball with right hand may not be exactly the same as the left one.

If he was serious about development of cricket, he would have by now set a clear vision for the country's cricket and acted on it, by energizing the grass root cricket, i.e. school cricket, divisional, cricket, age level, HP including appointment of Full time coaches for age groups. He would have quashed the 'COO' move and make BCB more professional

As for national team, we need a spin bowling coach and an extra specialist batting coach. If loita were only interested in Development instead of cheap popularity!!!!! Jotoshob idiots!

We need to get rid of Loita and CO...it will be the first step towards development. !!

October 28, 2010, 08:52 PM
I think it is possible to have two coaches working side by side if the messages they give are the same. Wasim would have to fit into Pont's messages otherwise it is not consistent.

2nd thing is Pont is teaching the things Wasim use to bowl anyway. In his background he worked with developing players for the English Cricket Board. You have to know your subject to do that!

As a little lift for the squad just before the WC it might be useful for Wasim to come and do a lecture in what he used to do. If it makes some good things then that is good. Not to have him mess with our bowlers though.

Finally point is that Pont is employed to work with our national team. If the academy and age groups want him they should make a big deal for him to do that and develop the future of Bangladesh. He is appointed only for a few months and had to help the WC bowlers get better.

Kamal pledges for progress




</FIELDSET>
Sports Reporter
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and new Asian Cricket Council (ACC) president AHM Mustafa Kamal said that progress is possible for the country's sport within the next two years.
He was addressing a press conference yesterday after his return from Singapore where he was made the ACC chief in the association's annual general meeting on June 30.
Kamal said that the development was possible with the help of ACC and the International Cricket Council. Bangladesh supported the panel to elect Sharad Pawar as ICC president in the meeting last Friday.
The ACC president explained his two-year plan to develop the region's cricket. "ACC will arrange different tournaments with the participation countries like China, Nepal and Afghanistan," said Kamal.
He also informed that former India captain Saurav Ganguly and South African great Jonty Rhodes have shown interest to work as advisors with the national team for two to three weeks.
BCB vice-presidents Ahmed Sajjadul Alam and Asaduzzaman Khasru and media committee chairman Jalal Yunus were also present on the occasion.
