ঢাকা: বাংলাদেশ জাতীয় ক্রিকেট দলের কোচ হতে সবুজ সংকেত দিয়েছেন ব্রিটিশ ক্রিকেটার রিচার্ড পাইবাস। এখন শুধুই চূড়ান্ত হ্যাঁ বলার অপেক্ষা।

শুক্রবার বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)’র কর্মকর্তাদের সঙ্গে বৈঠকের পর পাইবাস বাংলানিউজকে বলেন, ‘সবকিছু ইতিবাচক মনে হচ্ছে। মূলত সভাপতি ও বোর্ড কর্মকর্তাদের সঙ্গে কথা বলতেই এসেছি। সরাসরি আলোচনা করলে সবকিছুই পরিস্কার হয়। আর সাক্ষাৎকারই আমার সফরের মূল্ উদ্দেশে নয়; আনুষঙ্গীক বিষয়গুলো পরখ করাও জরুরী। দেশে ফিরে পরিবারের সঙ্গে আলোচনার পর চূড়ান্ত সিদ্ধান্ত নেবো।’

বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটারদের প্রশংসা করে পাইবাস বলেন, ‘প্রতিভাবান ক্রিকেটারের অভাব নেই। এসব ক্রিকেটারদের নিয়ে কাজ করা দারুণ ব্যাপার। বর্তমান সময়ে ভালো খেলছে বাংলাদেশ। এছাড়া বিশ্বমানের স্টেডিয়ামের পাশাপাশি অন্যান্য সুযোগ সুবিধাও আছে এখানে।’

প্রথমবার এলেও বাংলাদেশ সম্পর্কে আগেই অনেক কিছু জেনেছেন পাইবাস। বলেন, ‘এডি বারলো আমার বন্ধু ছিলো। ও এখন বেঁচে নেই। এডির মুখে সবসময়ই বাংলাদেশের প্রশংসা শুনেছি। আর সপ্তাহখানেক আগে এডির স্ত্রী কেলির সঙ্গে কথা হয়েছে। তিনিও বাংলাদেশের মানুষ ও পরিবেশ সম্পর্কে ভূয়সী প্রশংসা করেছেন।’

বিসিবি’র সভাপতি মোস্তফা কামাল বাংলানিউজকে জানান, পাইবাস হ্যাঁ বললে তিন বছরের জন্য চুক্তি করা হবে।

পাকিস্তানের সাবেক এই কোচ বিসিবির সংক্ষিপ্ত তালিকায় ছিলেন। বৃহস্পতিবার রাত সাড়ে ৮টায় ঢাকা আসেন সাক্ষাৎকারে অংশ নিতে।

বিসিবির সংক্ষিপ্ত তালিকায় থাকা অন্য দুইজন ছিলেন মিক নিউয়েল এবং নিউজিল্যান্ডের সাবেক ব্যাটসম্যান মার্ক গ্রেটব্যাচ।

কোচের সংক্ষিপ্ত তালিকা করার সময় অত্যন্ত গোপনীয়তা রক্ষা করা হলেও পাইবাসের ঢাকায় আসার খবর প্রকাশ পেয়ে যায় বিসিবির কর্মকর্তাদের মাধ্যমেই।

Kamal prefers Pybus as coach

http://cricket.bdnews24.com/details.php?cid=26&id=224357&hb=4

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President AHM Mustafa Kamal prefers Richard Pybus to be the next Bangladesh coach.

"Pybus is a tested coach. Well-wishers had suggested earlier for appointing Pybus as the new coach of our cricket team. He has arrived and we had discussions over the issue," Kamal told journalists at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on Friday.

The former Pakistan coach has been shortlisted by the board as a candidate to coach the national team and was to be interviewed on Friday. The board is also set to interview two other candidates later - Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell and former New Zealand batsman and coach Mark Greatbatch.

"He (Pybus) wants to know about our cricket and its infrastructure. He also wants to have an idea about issues relating to our team management, cricket board and advantages and disadvantages of cricket," Kamal added.

Kamal said Pybus will inform the board about his decision after consulting his family after he reaches home. Pybus' family has already been invited to pay a visit to Bangladesh, Kamal added.

"We don't have any specific target based on time and event. But Pybus has a specific target for the team besides having a specific target fixed for players of the team," said Kamal.

Kamal added the BCB decided to strike a long-term contract with the former Pakistan coach.

The new coach would be responsible for the team until the next Cricket World Cup. Kamal also hinted that the contract may be extended, if necessary.

He also said some senior cricketers may be introduced to Pybus in the evening on Friday.

Pybus, who arrived on Thursday, visited the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Friday. He has been satisfied after inspecting the stadium and the National Cricket Academy.

Born and raised in the north-east of England, Pybus has also expressed his eagerness to take over Bangladesh team and contribute to the development of cricket.

"I want to contribute to the development of the country's cricket. I think cricketers of this country are hungry for victory," said Pybus.

"Earlier, late Eddie Barlow had been a coach of Bangladesh cricket team. I have talked with his wife Kelly last week. She inspired me to take over the new responsibility. Now everything depends on the discussions with BCB," he added.

Pybus, who took up coaching in his mid-twenties, was appointed Pakistan coach for their 1999 World Cup campaign while at Border, before returning to the South African provincial side. He coached Pakistan again until the 2003 World Cup and had stints with Titans and Cape Cobras (South Africa), and Middlesex. He was with Cobras until March 2012 and was also linked to the South Africa job last year.

Just found the above article very interesting. He is very picky it seems. Went to the academy and checked all the cricketing infrasturcture.

What is also eye-cacthing is he said he has fixed goals for the team and also for spwcific players of th team. Eager to know what they are.

What i dont get is if BCB wants Pybus, then why still have they scheduled the interview with Newell and Greatbatch? If the deal is done under table, then why the extra effort?

Just read through the reports and articles about the interview. This guy seems well prepared and eager. This wasn't the case with any of our previous head coaches. They had no idea who we're. They always landed with the "Positive Notes." Obviously he did his research before coming down. And I liked the fact that he got the coaching stuff to come with him! He already has a game-plan set. These are BIG positive and makes a good first impression.

And I also noticed people in BC are scared by "strong personality." Awwwwww are you guys worried that our shonna-babus will get screamed at and will be forced work hard? Stop the sissyness. I've had enough with the "Nice-guys." He will be national head coach, notcha boifriend.

Exactly. And if any of the players complains that he's working them too hard, then *whip* his sorry buttocks until he grows a pair, or boot his sorry buttocks out of the team. We're #9, not # freakin' 1 and getting there will require crazy amounts of hard work.

Nope we are not worried about /scared about our shonababus who are traditionally veryyy lazy and needs proper treatment.. rather worried about our few laatbabus who are already well known as short tempered and known for having fight with their coach sometimes.. The last thing we want is another masala news of fight between coach and the players (don't want another Tamim-Jones type clash).. Then again as a professional both parties should know how to work it around and get the best out of each other.. I don't mind Strong personality but somehow that's not well accepted in our putu putu culture.. Siddons couldn't last long remember..

I meant he wasn't popular in BD for being too straight forward and he had to leave .. that's fine as long as we get another good coach.. a coach who would know how to bring the team together.. will have a good rapport with each and every player (including the star players), will be able to motivate them enough to get the best out of them.. I don't care what treatment he uses as long as he cares for our boys and help them grow.. Just don't want to hear news like rift between coach and so and so player or rift between coach and the board.. that's it.. All the best to Pybus !!!

WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! ... WOW! You dont wanna start a Siddons debate but you say things like that? ANOTHER? What do you mean ANOTHER! That's a very strong word my friend. And JS left because he failed. His mission was WC11 and he failed, not because he had a mouth.
----------------------
With Law people were too quick to judge him, based on his early interviews. But it turns out he knew what he was doing and he was able to break up all the JS gangs and negativity and united the team.

Since we typically judge by first impression, Pybus made a great one.

I'm dying to open a Pybus vs Law thread on polarity bases or who do you want type of thing. Too early.

You are remembering it correctly. I guess, be careful whatcha wish for huh?

Law made a very iffy first impression. I was happy to have waited and see what he did out there in the middle. Not everyone makes a good first impression, but he left with a good one. Pybus made a great first impression, and hopefully it's not a reverse-Law-effect.

And looking at his preparation, I hope he won't take as long as Law to settle in. I'm tired of seeing premature polls "this and this must go"

Ajfar

Boss as soon as this gets confirmed you should change this thread title to 'Official Pybus thread' before someone opens another one.

So I'm guessing this a done deal at least that's what I'm guessing after the way Loitta kamal is saying we don't need to interview anyone else. I hope we are in for a treat. I hope he is a strict coach, after hearing some of the things about our players I think we need a tough coach who will lay down the law and make the players realize this isn't there 'mamar bari'.

I just read through all of the articles boss posted. Looks like this guy might be hot tempered, maybe that's exactly what we need. I can see it already, there will be a thread popping within the first few month 'Is this guy to tough on our players' or something along that line. I'm all up for a coach, je bash diya player ek ek jon re manush korbe.

We need a hot tempered guy so that our training habits can be fixed up.

A tough-guy approach sounds fairly appropriate for our sissy team.

Hope this guy is as brutal as you're all making him out to be.

Exactly. And if any of the players complains that he's working them too hard, then *whip* his sorry buttocks until he grows a pair, or boot his sorry buttocks out of the team. We're #9, not # freakin' 1 and getting there will require crazy amounts of hard work.

Problem is... it's not beyond the senior players to run complaining to the President if it's too tough a regime. Then if the Pres overrules then we have a 'situation'. So this isn't about the coach being strict. It's whether or not the board actually back his methods.

This will be an interesting appointment if it happens :waiting:

It does seem odd to announce "All aboard the Pybus" is favourite in public, when the other candidates haven't even been interviewed. Logically, he would be favourite if the's the only one who's been interviewed.

Guys like Shakib, Mash, Rahim probably even Nasir won't have any trouble dealing with the "toughness." Guys like Razzak, Siddique, Imrul will. Tamim is most likely to be the one to complain to his chacchu. "Coach told me to lose our family symbol, the belly!"

That's right, I worked on the yearbook committee in high school. Don't question me.

Damnright


You are remembering it correctly. I guess, be careful whatcha wish for huh?

Law made a very iffy first impression. I was happy to have waited and see what he did out there in the middle. Not everyone makes a good first impression, but he left with a good one. Pybus made a great first impression, and hopefully it's not a reverse-Law-effect.

And looking at his preparation, I hope he won't take as long as Law to settle in. I'm tired of seeing premature polls "this and this must go"

Dear Mr. Dilscoop,

A strong positive first impression goes a long way. It covers and makes-up for whatever shortcoming(s) an international coach will inevitably show.

However a weak first impression will overshadow the best of what happens afterwards.

Law was a clever guy he seized the Asia Cup moment to leave with a good legacy and make himself more attractive to other employers. The 'family reasons' for quitting the job was just diplomacy from Law. Law was never the BD coach.

Dear Mr. Shartaz,

There is no way you can prove any of that. You are basically saying he quit in worry of failures. I highly doubt any of the INT coaches are quitters. And for more attractive employers? As far as I know, he left an INT job for a job at home to coach at the age. If he was trying to fish for better employers, I'm sorry, but jokes on him. Again, you can't prove whether he was or wasn't the coach for BD.

I did not say he quit 'in a worry of failures' to come.

He got a job as the assistant coach at Australia's Center of Excellence in Brisbane. Now I don't know the types of Australians that you have met. But the ones I've meet would hands down live in Brisbane and work in the Australian cricket setup than in Bangladesh, any day of the week.

Yes you are correct that I cannot conclusively prove what I said. But I am sure that he had the consent of his family when he agreed to take the job. When you cite family reasons there is no rebuttal.

I rest my case.

I've never felt so excited about coaches/staffs as much as I'm right now. 12 hours ago when I logged into BC I knew nothing about this guy. All happened pretty fast. But reading through things got me very excited.

I was excited when couple of coaches were added to Syndrome's staff. I was more excited about them after the NZ series but I wasn't this excited right away.

I'm noob w/ coaches and staff and background guys But being an old and knowledgeable man that you are, tell me about it Z.

This is always an interesting point.

The facts are the team won just a single ODI and lost every series. Then they won 2 ODIs in the Asia Cup. It is widely felt that the BPL was the catalyst for those two wins.

But Stuart is a fine coach and he deserves to have those wins on his record during what was a tough time for him. I suspected he was never fully happy in Dhaka. Plus there were various reported incidents around the dressing room and with the upheaval of Shakib and Tamim losing their positions, team selection and interference. In the BPL itself, Sylhet Royals had a dreadful time, changing captain midway and having player issues. I think this would have been tough on Stuart.

Legacy is a difficult thing to quantify. Sometimes you get lucky and leave with a great record. Sometimes you don't. However, it is rarely controllable in such a short time at the helm. I would imagine that after difficult Sri Lanka and BD experiences, Stuart will be happy to go back to Australia to work locally in the academy and I imagine that decision was made well ahead of The Asia Cup.... the wins didn't help him to be "more attractive" therefore.

So lets say, Bangladesh had failed in the Asia Cup. What would you say then? Would he still be "a clever guy, he seized the Asia Cup moment to leave with a good legacy." How can you just dismiss the "family reason?" Can't one have change in heart? What if he actually missed his family? Also, He was a Sri Lankan coach too, so you can't say he doesn't want to live in Bangladesh/Subcon condition.

I'm not a Law-fan, nor was I a hater, I wasn't ready to jump on a bandwagon yet. It was way too soon. But it seems to me you are in a wagon. LBW or JS? Both? You people are dangerous...

And I hope our new coach won't be as "brutal" as Dean Jones was for CTG ...

To be honest, we shouldnt have a coach who lets the players do whatever they want or someone who really is brutal as DJones. We need a coach who is somewhere in between. Someone our players will enjoy training under

I am sure within few months, RP would have run ins with media/selectors/board members/someone for sure. He is a loose canon and do not hold back his tongue and that is great concern of not having enough patience and "my way or the highway attitude". That is what I am worried about Dillu.

As long as performance over beauty contest wins on his book I am in for the time being. He is not staying here for long.

We are about as dysfunctional a board as the PCB. At least under the Lotus regime. Pybus was fired by the PCB thrice. The redeeming part was that he was rehired thrice.

I don't know why but Newell seems more of a proper candidate for Bangladesh. Besides the fact that his got a strong resume, his connection with English county is very attractive to me. Few of our players may score some contracts with the EC teams which could result in individual improvement benefitting the national team. What say you?

He did an awesome job in domestic cricket but he doesn't have any experience in international level. This is a negative point for him for considering as a coach for any country. My 2 cent.

This is what i am worried about too! Cricket is a team sport just like any other sport.
I guess as long as he delivers results and he stays(or other people) stay out of trouble, i won't complain :)

There is a difference between strong work ethic and attitude, you can be the friendliest guy in the world and still make you and your team work really hard. You don't have to be a jerk to make your players be the best that they can be and motivate them. They can still work hard and be inspired. Things don't necessarily have to be that way. all it takes is dedication.
