ঢাকা: বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি) থেকে অস্ট্রেলিয়ানদের আধিপত্য কমে গেলেও নিঃশ্বেস হচ্ছে না। জেমি সিডন্স এবং স্টুয়ার্ট ল’র উত্তরসূরি ইংলিশ কোচ হলেও একাডেমির প্রধান কোচ রস টার্নারের জায়গায় যোগ দিতে পারেন একজন অস্ট্রেলিয়ান।

বাংলাদেশ অনূর্ধ্ব-১৯ দলের সাবেক কোচ রিচার্ড ম্যাকিন্স বিসিবি একাডেমির প্রধান কোচ হিসেবে দায়িত্ব নিতে পারেন। বিসিবির সঙ্গে তার প্রাথমিক আলোচনা হয়েছে। বৃহস্পতিবার মধ্যরাতে ঢাকায় আসছেন পাকাপাকি কথা বলার জন্য। হোম অব ক্রিকেটে একাডেমির সুযোগ সুবিধাগুলোও দেখবেন।

ম্যাকিন্সের ঢাকায় আসার বিষয়টি স্বীকার করে বিসিবি পরিচালক গাজী আশরাফ হোসেন লিপু বাংলানিউজকে বলেন, ‘তিনি এসে কি ধরণের সুযোগ সুবিধা আছে তা দেখবেন। তারপর আমাদের সঙ্গে বসে সুযোগসুবিধা নিয়ে আলোচনা করবেন। সব কিছু হতে একটু সময় লাগবে। কারণ পরিবারের সঙ্গেও তো আলোচনা করবেন ম্যাকিন্স।’

অস্ট্রেলিয়ান এই কোচের অধীনে ২০০৪ সালের যুব বিশ্বকাপের প্লেট চ্যাম্পিয়ন হয়েছিলো বাংলাদেশ অনূর্ধ্ব-১৯ ক্রিকেট দল। প্লেট ফাইনালে হারিয়েছিলো অস্ট্রেলিয়াকে।

হাইপারফরমেন্স নিয়ে দারুণ কাজ করেছেন বিসিবির সাবেক এই কোচ। অনূর্ধ্ব-১৫, অনূর্ধ্ব-১৭ এবং অনূর্ধ্ব-১৯ দলের ক্রিকেটার নিয়ে হাইপারফরমেন্স ইউনিট গড়ে তুলেছিলেন ম্যাকিন্স। আজকের সাকিব আল হাসান, মুশফিকুর রহিমসহ জাতীয় দলের অনেক ক্রিকেটার ম্যাকিন্সের হাইপারফরমেন্স হয়ে এসেছেন।

২০০৭ সালে ডেভ হোয়াটমোরের জায়গায় জাতীয় দলের প্রধান কোচের আলোচনায়ও ছিলেন ম্যাকিন্স। অস্ট্রেলিয়া জাতীয় নারী ক্রিকেট দলের কোচের দায়িত্বে আছেন তিনি। অস্ট্রেলিয়া পুরুষ দলের ভিডিও এনালিস্ট হিসেবেও কাজ করেছেন।

২০০৩ থেকে ২০০৪ সালে বাংলাদেশে কাজ করে যাওয়া ম্যাকিন্স রাজি হলে একাডেমির প্রধান কোচ হিসেবে দুই বছরের জন্য চুক্তি হতে পারে।

WOW. That's awesome. This guy is the ideal guy for our budding cricketers. His style of coaching is little hard but he knows how to get the job done. Still remember how the players used to complain about his ice bath therapy. We got players Like Shakib,Mushy because of him.

I hope Mccines comes back to Bangladesh. We need him badly

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) all but confirmed Australian Richard McInnes as head coach of the National Cricket Academy.
The former Bangladesh Under-19 and High Performance Unit coach in 2003-04, McInnes was supposed to arrive in the capital late last night to see the infrastructure and facilities on offer.
“Everything is confirmed and both parties agreed in principle to sign the deal. He is scheduled to come to Dhaka tonight to see all the facilities because he has had a stint in Bangladesh cricket long ago. Hopefully he will join the academy within next two three weeks after this visit,” informed BCB director Gazi Ashraf Hossain, who is also in charge of looking after the academy.
Richard McInnes, who coached the Bangladesh Under-19 team to a plate title in the Under-19 World Cup in 2004 beating Australia, played a big role in the formation of today's star cricketers like Shakib Al Hasan and captain Mushfiqur Rahim.
The post of the academy's head coach was vacated after another Australian, Ross Turner, had resigned on health grounds in October last year after taking over the job in April.

Must give credit to BCB for their choice of coaches really, they always somehow manage to pick some gems out of nowhere. Even our last Academy head coach Ross Turner was also an excellent and highly rated coach but unfortunately had to quit due to health issues. I hope with the appointment of McInnes our youth cricket will reach even bigger heights.

[বাংলা]রিচার্ড ম্যাকিন্সকে পেল একাডেমি[[/বাংলা]
[বাংলা]ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক | তারিখ: ০৮-০৬-২০১২[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]নামটা বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটে পরিচিতই। ২০০৩ থেকে ২০০৪ পর্যন্ত ছিলেন হাইপারফরম্যান্স ইউনিটের দায়িত্বে। কোচ ছিলেন ২০০৪ অনূর্ধ্ব-১৯ বিশ্বকাপে প্লেটজয়ী বাংলাদেশ দলেরও। এই অস্ট্রেলিয়ান এবার দায়িত্ব পাচ্ছেন বিসিবি একাডেমি দলের প্রধান কোচ ও ম্যানেজারের। আপাতত দুই বছরের চুক্তি সই করতে গত রাতেই ম্যাকিন্সের ঢাকায় এসে পৌঁছানোর কথা ছিল।

একাডেমির দায়িত্বপ্রাপ্ত বিসিবি পরিচালক গাজী আশরাফ হোসেন জানিয়েছেন, ম্যাকিন্স দায়িত্ব নেবেন জুলাইয়ের প্রথম সপ্তাহ থেকে। স্ত্রী-সন্তান নিয়েই বাংলাদেশে আবাস গড়ার ইচ্ছা তাঁর। রিচার্ড ম্যাকিন্স সর্বশেষ ক্রিকেট অস্ট্রেলিয়ার উইমেন্স উইংয়ের প্রধান কোচ হিসেবে কাজ করছিলেন।[/বাংলা]

Great news indeed! I'm so so happy :)
I'm even more exited to know this news than about our head coach (no offense to our head couch though). It's just that I always liked Richard McInnes. And finally he's coming back.
Now we'll have a lot more players in the pipeline, I'm hoping of course!

Man, this is such an exciting time for bd cricket:

- Our last series was one of the best tournament performance in bd cricket history.
- We have a great guy as a head coach.
- Excellent support staff (not well known but you just have to follow their twitter feed to see how comitted they are)
- Now we have McInness, someone I have been waiting for to come back for a long time.
- Over-eager, big spending new sponsor.
- BPL was not too bad either.

All these happened under a truly horrible BCB head.

Now I hope to see McInnes and pybus working together to script the future of BD cricket.

June 7, 2012, 08:05 PM
Wanna add that I would have preferred to have pont somewhere in the coaching setup or even as a head of a fast bowling national academy of sorts - but I think at this point its unlikely to happen. We have to carry on with what we have.

Ian Pont
June 7, 2012, 08:07 PM
^^^^thanks Blah. Never going to happen sadly.

With regard to Richard, this is a very good appointment. Richard and I have chatted a few times about Bangladesh Cricket and his return is indeed very welcome.

What's interesting is that the things he spoke about in the matrix article (effectively identifying the issues in Bangladesh cricket) are still uncorrected after 8 years. This to me would be his starting point and ensure that the CULTURE of cricket changes forever and for the best. It really is time for the blame game and excuse culture to stop so BD cricket can flourish and not keep falling backwards after false dawns.

As with any changes that he, or the new head coach, bring in, the players have to "buy in" to those changes. Firstly, they have to not complain about them to board members and accept that professional coaches know what they are doing.

IMO the thing that destroys progress more than anything else is when players have too much power and can undermine what a coach is trying to achieve.

It looks like all the jigsaw pieces have fallen into place, It is now down to the players themselves to make the difference.

Here's a key quote from the article. And you've also talked about it till you're blue in the face. :)

It is all about accountability. If a players say that his balance when batting is poor, and 6 months later his balance is still poor, then I have to ask questions. Initially of myself: was what was I doing to help him? Secondly of the player: did he do the work to improve that area? If he didn't do the work, then you can question his desire to actually get better. Maybe he is happy with his standard. On the other hand, if I could see the players was making an effort, than I need to try a different technique to help him. Hopefully I would have noticed a lack of progress earlier than 6 months.

Given this fact, the appointment of RP as head coach is a pivotal moment. He will either bust open the poor system that exists or get drowned by it. Of anyone in world cricket, he is the one to make the difference.

But I cannot help feeling that along this journey since Dav Whatmore, that the coaches have ALL been able to make a difference. The reason they haven't been as successful as everyone wished is not down to the them.

Technical skills - back lift, grip, balance etc.
Tactical skills - shot selection, reading game situation, decision making etc.
Mental skills - concentration, body language, pain tolerance etc.
Physical skills - speed between wickets, endurance, ability to bat for long periods, power, ability to hit over the top, ability to dominate bowlers etc.

McInnes promises to revive HP unit

‘I have got to talk with my wife and my family. It’s a matter of choosing
the right thing. She is a school teacher and my two kids are studying in grade four and grade two,’ said McInnes.
‘If I come back that [HP unit] will be a something I will work on. Hopefully it will allow players to train specifically on the things that they need to do to play international cricket, things that maybe they can’t do in domestic cricket,’ he said.
‘For example if you are going to play England in England as an opening batsman you are going to face 140 to 145kmph with swing and bounce. You cannot get that in domestic cricket.

According to inqulab, it's well over $10K per month with benefits. Total package might be around $13-$14K...that's a handsome package And he should definitely take the offer. His wife will also work in a NGO firm....The attention and respect he will get in BD is well worth it. This job will be very good for his career and he might turn into a head coach for one of the Test Team in future. I for one want him

This is where we have to hit hard by hiring coach like mcinnes and try to close the gap between other teams and ours... Within next two-three years we need more players like shak-mushi-tamim and McInnes is the right person for it. where team like India will have trouble producing quality young players we should be able to produce some.. i can see some bright days ahead..

Alhamdulillah!

Poor domestic circuit is only ONE reason for talents to fade away. The more important reason is SELF CONFIDENCE and Hard work. This players say they want to be players like lee, gilchrist, tendulkar but how are they gonna reach that level without hard work?? Its their problem, if they dont work hard they wont get to play, no play = no fame no money no nothing thats their choice.

The players think that just after 1 or 2 good performance they become the boss. Thats the motive of many people. I dont see it in tamim ofcourse, day by day he tries to improve his game, and another good example is mushy, look how he started as below par batsman and at recent time being able to play some good knocks esp. in DPL

An interesting Article by Akash chopra on Indias upcoming players.
http://www.espncricinfo.com/magazine/content/story/568077.html

This is where we have to hit hard by hiring coach like mcinnes and try to close the gap between other teams and ours... Within next two-three years we need more players like shak-mushi-tamim and McInnes is the right person for it. where team like India will have trouble producing quality young players we should be able to produce some.. i can see some bright days ahead..

India has tens if not hundres of cricketers who has 1st class average over 50. We have none! Akash was talking about Manish Panday whos average is above 54 and yet languishes in obsecurity. Our problem is different. We have very thin talent pool. We latch onto anybody who produces a brief flash in the pan.

There is no point in comparing with India when it comes to domestic cricket. Bangladesh by far has the WORST domestic FC system amongst test playing countries. I mean one ex-Pakistani national's registration caused 2 months of hold-off for Dhaka League, thats not only laughable but also humiiating.

Forget Indias Ranji Trophy or Australias league system or English County cricket or Pakistans strong domestic structure.. I think we probably can only compare with Zimbabwe or Kenya in terms of dometic cricket. Even for that matter, Zimbabwe is showing more creativity in upholding their First Class Cricket. For Bangladesh, exactly how many FC circketers did we produce in the last 2-3 years who has an average of 50 plus? Unless BCB is really serious about FC cricket and does something definitive about it, our test cricket and overall talent pool will only produce Imrul, Naeem, Shubho like talents..

I agree that we need to improve our domestic cricket, but I won't agree that to be outright the worst. Tell me of a structure that is capable of producing cricketers like Aus and SA from day 1? Pak as a 50 years old cricketing nation doesn't have a very strong FC structure, but they produce players through cricketing culture and interest of the people.

What's there in Zim or Kenya FC structure thats better than us? Kenya isn't even comparable to us if you knew anything about them. Zim has a better and longer cricketing culture /Heritage than us. The ex players are involved with their cricket and their contribution is giving them a boost, not because they have a better FC structure than us.

What ever structure we have now, is pretty good, now we need capable and cricket educated people around these players to prepare them as a better version of Mullah or Nayeem as u say. But where we will import these people from? Our ex players aren't that capable like Zim ex players. We don't have any ex player who can be hired by England, Zim has a few of them. So our progress in building a culture and producing better products is a bit slow. We have to probably wait for people like Shak, Tamim, Ash etc and many more of similar or better Calibre people to retire and contribute in producing better players in the domestic level and establish a deep rooted culture of proper cricket.

There is no known structure that will start producing grade 1 cricketers from day one, like a machine.... It's a gradual process and it's not only structure, a lot of things influence in producing better cricketers.. We simply dont have it and most of those can't be bought from any market .... We have to wait, have patience and continue learning and improving ..we will be there some day.

We have quiet reasonable domestic structure at the moment and we are better than many. We need good coaches from abroad to teach us and we are spending a lot on them. If the domestic teams would be capable to hire foreign coaches that would teach us even faster. But we do not afford. But look at BPL, at least we now have good coaches there for one month. 50/60 of our boys are getting exposed for a month in BPL .. That's a good thing and that has shown signs of improvement in domestic league already. So i think we should stop complaining about domestic structure, we should think of improving quality...if you can't have foreigners, wait for your own and be happy with gradual improvement that we are seeing now. We definitely produce better cricketers now than what we were producing in 2000. So I'm happy with our structure for now.

Please don't bring in MO case to make it look clumsy...we have many foreigners playing here and that's not the case with everyone. These kind of delays in visa happen every where.

Agree with BANFAN bhai, its not just abt better FC structure. We need some importance in Age groups, A team, academy team. These 3 things are important as in these levels the players are able to play against players of a different country and during tours, a different environement
