Like the BKSP and Fatullah Initiative and McInnes, Saqlain hiring. I don't know what happened but BCB seemed to take a lot of good initiatives lately. Lotus, what is going on?

We badly need an specialist off spinner (Not Nasir, not Mahmudullah, not Naeem-i meant specialist). Do we have anyone in the pipeline. I know we have a leggie in Nur Hossain. But we also need a quality off spinner.

BCB election is coming up, in answer to all of those who are concerned about how come BCB has become so efficient all of a sudden. Nevertheless, they are some very good decisions there, especially the ones about the national academy head coach and saqlain mustaq :D

We needed a Head Coach - so they appointed one
We needed a coach for the NCA - they appointed one(hired someone that has experience with our setup)
Saqlain - temporary bowling coach is no biggie

So the only thing of note is the development of the grounds....

Not sure, why we have these cynical cries of election...election.

I hope they can keep him for at least a yr...3 months is not enough to work with any spinners other than the nats one.

Cricinfo says saqlain previously worked with australian and new zealand spinners. I didn't see how that helped those countries and certainly didnt see anyone bowl the doosra

I don't think you can teach doosra in 3 months. Maybe he can, if he focused on only one bowler. But he will train a big group of guys.

I want our spinners to use the variation and turn the ball. There has been a new trend among spinners to fire the ball in. Samuels did it in IPL, Afridi and even our own Razzak does it. Its okay to bowl 1 such delivery every over, but they are over doing it. It makes them hard to play in T20 but I don't like it.

Then again, the current Australian and Kiwi spinners are utter crap to begin with, barring Vettori and maybe Hogg.

Yes firing them in is okay in t-20 but absolutely useless in test cricket or even odis

Saqlain was one of my favourite players growing up. I will never forget that hattrick he had against Zimbabwe. Hope he can show enough to earn a long term contract.

I'm liking the new moves made by BCB.

BCB is turning around and making some good decisions one after another. Good to see that.

We have good spinners but if we give training them properly, all of them will be more effecive.

Though we need also train our pacers.

Lol you seem to be very optimistic about the quality of our spinners. They are good, but not world class. Saqlain is there for this purpose

Pacers have been having specialist coaches for the last so many years. Still no fix

I would personally rate Bangladesh's spin department the second best in the world. Pakistan probably has the best spin department and i would think Bangladesh would just edge out England. Other countries in strong contention would be South Africa (Peterson, Tahir, Johan Botha) and West Indies perhaps.

As good as Rafique is, he doesn't know dusra. Enough said. Arm ball was his best weapon and our spinners already know that.

You ve missed out on the 2 teams that come after Pakistan-India and Sri Lanka. After that WI then maybe us. India is having a torrid time with spin, but that doesnt mean they dont have good spinners. They have very high expectations which currently no one is able to meet. They also have top class spinners who are also on the fringes. Pragyan Ojha will slot into any team of the world, but he cant make it into Indian NT. Same applies to Sri Lanka. There is a lot of talent which they havent exposed yet, but could easily play for a top team. We have a long way to go. India has dozens of Sunny's. We dont see them because of the competition there.
