The thought of knowing Urdu better than English for a Bangladeshi is a reflection of a "stoop down" mindset, IMHO.
Forget getting Wasim Akram as our next coach simply because Dave hasnt left us yet. My question to u is what makes u think that they dont know more about Hindi/Urdu than English? Ofcourse most of our cricketers have better knowledge on Hindi or Urdu than English. Now dont ask me why? If u havent realized it yet then its about time. Beside i really wonder why is, "the thought of knowing Urdu better than English for a Bangladeshi is a reflection of a "stoop down" mindset"? Seems like u have problems with Bangladeshi people knowing Hindi or Urdu.
I think that hiring a "deshi" coach is NOT teh way to go because of the possibility of ill-feeling and complexities. An aussie/pommie/non-deshi coach is a better way to go because they are like "outsiders", politically speaking, and secondly non-deshi coaches from successful Test nations (namely Australia) have a proven track-record as players, and are more likely to transfer the winnning formula to the BD team than a coach from a sub-standard deshi team (relatively speaking, of course).
