IMO, we will do better under a coach who will take a similar approach employing some Bangladesh coaches under him to do the task.
Ehsan, I agree with you about Bulbul and would love to see him and Salahuddin involved at some point. Unlike Nannu Bhai and some of the other local coaches incapable of rectifying our technical problems at the NCL level, those monumental egos get in the way, I think they'll do great. I have hopes for Pilot becoming a good coach also someday.

Combination of the communication and inspiration gap is a major issue as demonstrated repeated by our guys in the middle. Still can't rotate the strike while blocking half-volleys and full-tosses, committing the front foot too early, playing with a tight bottom hand, premeditatingly sweeping by the number and throwing their wickets away etc, the list goes on. Most of our guys, obviously with way better natural ability than the murubbi-matobbors used to struggling badly against Hong Kong and Denmark, come from rural and semi rural Bangladesh, and don't have a solid foundation is Bangla. Riyad is an exception, as is the near-illiterate Motin.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
