Salahuddin quits BCB

http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=171144

Coach Mohammad Salahuddin has tendered his resignation to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) yesterday to take up a new job in Malaysia.

“I got a good offer from Malaysia and that's why I tendered my resignation letter to the CEO (Manzur Ahmed) today (Saturday). I am going to join my new job in March this year,” informed Salahuddin.

Salahuddin had a long association with the national team as a fielding coach before BCB decided not to renewal his contract in November 2009.

He however got the opportunity to work as a coach with the GP-BCB National Cricket Academy.

Julian Fountain is now working as a fielding coach of the national team.

It's okay. We need some foreigner like Maccines in the Academy.

Salauddin is a good motivator but not a good coach. He sucked as fielding coach for national team.

Good luck to him with his new job.

Remind you guys, not so long ago Shakil Kashem, the director of the academy, also resigned being frustrated at BCB lack of necessary support for the academy.

He may not have met our expectation as the fielding coach, but he made a huge difference in our spin bowling department helping all three SLAs currently in the WC squad, as well as helping Tamim to refine his techniques against short balls.

No, he was only a club cricketer, used to be a medium pacer. He retired at an early age because of injuries.

^^Nope. Shalahudin played for Bangladesh and he was an OB bowler. I still remember he was praised for his excellent bowling against India in one of the Asia Cups.

I think this is the Salahuddin we are talking about.

From New Age -

Mohammad Salahuddin, former fielding coach of the national cricket team and currently working with the GP-BCB National Cricket Academy, has resigned his BCB post on Saturday to join the University Kebangsaan of Malaysia.

Salahuddin will work at the university, which is also the national university of Malaysia, as the high performance coach on a two-year contract starting from March, 2011.

Salahuddin, one of the six level-3 coaches of the country, joined the BCB in 2005 and had been working in various capacities since then. He was the fielding coach of the Tigers until July last year.

One of the most sought-after local coaches by the national players, Salahuddin was instrumental in rectifying the bowling action of Abdur Razzak after he was reported by the umpires.

‘This is the reality as I have to support my family. It will also give me a chance to explore a new horizon which I love to do always,’ Salahuddin told New Age after submitting his resignation letter to the chief executive officer of the BCB.

‘I am grateful to all the coaches – Dav Whatmore, Shaun Williams and Jamie Siddons – whom I worked with,’ said Salahuddin.

‘I am also very proud and privileged to work with the best generation of Bangladeshi cricketers. I have had fantastic experience and wonderful memories,’ said Salahuddin.

Asked about any regret Salahuddin said he was wrongly branded as specialised fielding coach.

‘I think it was wrong to give me a tag of fielding coach. I was also looking after the spinners and the batsman during that time,’ said Salahuddin.

Head coach Jamie Siddons feels Bangladesh have lost one of the best local coaches with the departure of Salahuddin. ‘Bangladesh have lost one of the best coaches and perhaps the only spin coach,’ said Siddons after Salahuddin met him at the academy ground to say goodbye.

Spinner Razzak said he will miss Salahuddin badly, who had coached him since his days at the BKSP.

‘I will miss him to say the least. I needed his guidance and I am here because of him,’ said Razzak.

You definitely don't ever want to lose a coach. Even though he wasn't a great fielding coach he was a great motivator and also helped tamim a lot. Its sad that we lost him to malaysia. Couldn't bcb make a better effort to keep him?

Well Salahuddin wasnt really showed much respect.. As much as the players liked him, the board showed him a cold shoulder and finally he left for a university instead of National Team /Academy, which bothers me the most. I hope he is not branded as an 'ICL-er' because of that!!

Good on Malaysia. Hope for the best for MR. S.

For BD, this is the natural progression. Deal with it. He doesn't have a magic wand. No one does.

He is going to coach Malayasia. I am taking it positively. Hopefully he brings reputation for Bangladeshi.

Actually, the fourth one in Malaysia. Monjurul Islam (Monju) last year joined Bulbul in ACC development program there. Before that, Shahidul Islam (Ratan) was hired to coach the Malaysian U/19 team.

We also have Rokon coaching a club in New Zealand.

Don't dismiss people like that... he is a level 3 coach and he has done a lot for our national team players

Remember Shakib said he needed a spin bowling coach, He saw this coming and really wanted to keep Salauddin with his unit.

Salauddin was universally loved by the players, so I am sure they will miss him. He will be badly missed by our spinner... Hopefully, he will come back after he is done at Malaysia.

I agree, he is one of the unsung heroes of the team, and players keep praising his contribution at every opportunity. Let's NOT have a short term memory and forget our heroes so easily.

Good for him. I don't think he would get that much even if he was assigned a role with the national team. I don't know what he does but the players certainly enjoy his company so he would have been a positive influence to have around. But oh well.

Infact, he has served long enough with our cricket. Let someone new come up to take the job.

Don't you worry......we have ASH as the back up! BCB won't ever let ASH vanish from the cricketing scenario of BD, so he's gonna be assigned with that role pretty soon :-D:-D:-D

Alhamdulillah! This is indeed a very good news, great news. Another good Bangladeshi will guide/coach and do good for a foreign team in another country, this is indeed glory for me, today we Bangladeshis are contributing in the progress and prolifiration of cricket in the world. Good prestige!

Salaam and all the best to dear coach Salahuddin!

BCB should have tried to keep him with the boys. He is an asset as a coach and our academy boys could have gained a lot from him.

He was a dedicated servant of Bangladesh cricket. I hope he will come back after his stint with Malayasia cricket.

I bet the BCB bosses don't care about local coaching talent all that much. It's common trend amongst us, people of the subcontinent, to respect the whities more. It's true that we lack professionalism but then again the ones that are good and professional could be over looked because of our biases.

I think he would have stayed even if he did not get that much. But, BCB is notorious for playing favorites and ignoring local coaches. This one is for Loitta the great!

That's a better option. Allow him to grow as a coach. That way we will benefit more.

I didn't dismiss him brother. I know he helped many of our current players, especially the spinners.

If he was our spin bowling coach, I wouldn't say anything against him. He was our fielding coach and I didn't see much improvements in that department. He was there for long time.

He is a good guy and loves Bangladesh cricket thats why he helped the players. I do appreciate that.

Sohel

Not just spinners, the backbone of our cricket, but he spent hours and hours making quite a few of our batsmen better, Tamim the most prominent among them.
