It was so important for us to continue with coaches like Ian Pont ... There was a clear sign of development in the pace department under him. If we can have a HP camp for the pacers even now, we can come up with 3/4 good pacers in 6 months time.
No coach can help if a pacer(in this case any player) doesn't train all yr long. As they say, practice is the key to success! AFAIK, during off season, most of the players outside nats team do no training whatsoever. That's not their fault..It's because BCB doesn't have any alternative plans for these players. Unless we change that, we will continue to struggle in every department, not only pace.
Financially players needs help too. Just look at Talha. Got injured @ age of 18, was one of the Most Promising FAST bowler in the country back in the day but where is he now? BCB didn't bother to pay for his surgery, forget about looking after him...
