View Full Version : Expectations from the new BCB president

November 11, 2012, 08:23 AM
Our Current president has very little time before the board president election takes. But I think he will win the election and continue his tenure. We have seen a lot of big promises from the previous president, Lotus Kamal; most of which didn't see the light. Hopefully the new president will do something which are necessary for our cricket to move forward,

What do we expect from him? Please share your thoughts.

I am pointing out my expectations.

Decentralization of Cricket: Decentralization of cricket has been at the top of the list for ages. I hope Mr. Papon would establish a few localized cricket boards which would have the necessary funds. All these boards will have their own salaried coaches, grounds, ground staffs and salary system for the players. I know I am asking too much to be implemented now. But at least a good start needs to be there.
Bowling Academy: It's better if we can establish a national pace and a spin academy. If that's not possible right at the moment then we need to have at least a single academy for training all kinds of bowlers. The upcoming talents and the national team bowlers all can use this academy. I am sure big corporate names like the cell phone companies, the banks would be interested to sponsor this academy if approached properly by BCB.
A Proper Selection Policy: Right now there is no selection policy at all. The selection is done arbitrarily. This has to change.
Sporting Wickets: Sporting wickets has been the demand since ages. We need sporting wickets all over the country. It's better if we can deploy different kinds of wickets in different parts of the country. Some wickets to be bouncy and fast, some wickets to be slow and spin favored, some to be pure batting paradise. This would give our boys the chance to cope up with different conditions.

If I may add one more Sadi, please?

> Find a coach who has dedication towards Bangladesh cricket (like Siddons and Pont) - not just a coach who will do it just for money!

I don't know much about new president. Is he a man from cricket background? If the answer is 'yes'. Then we can expect something better from him. Otherwise we can't hope lots from him.

Right now, he ll be busy securing his position beyond one year. Firstly, he will try to find legal loopholes to extend the tenure politically, secondly, being nice with the influential guys in BCB and regional cricket associations, to be elected, if there is one. Under this situation He isn't also likely to contradict much and annoy anyone around him in BCB.

So, whatever limited time he is going to have for cricket, he will mostly leave things on the committees and go blindly with their recommendations. Otherwise, he isn't from cricketing background, so it will always be difficult for him to make any genuine contribution/prioritizing development needs.

So, don't expect much from him... Just pray that, Tutul type guys don't start flexing their muscles to curb genuine initiatives by the capable/sincere persons inside BCB.

I really hope Saber wins the next election. Given the current presidents affiliation with the Dhaka clubs I think things like decentralisation of cricket is the farthest thought on his mind.

I'll be happy enough to see him able to clean the Loitta mess left for him. atm my expectation for him to
> Fix all the problems & issues surrounding BPL. Its a question national prestige.
> Give proper recognition to Professional Cricketers' Association and FICA

My only expectation from him is to 'Care/give a damn' about our cricket. As long as he is in for the right reason things will get done.
