Just like our national cricketers have very little descipline, desire or motivation for self-improvement our local coaches are also prone to the same mediocrity. Take the last U19 World Cup, I'm utterly baffled as to how a looong time coach like Sarwar Imran could pick just ONE solitary pacer for a match in Australian conditions. I would say this indicate a lack of basic commonsense about cricket, in general.

We can all talk about "improvement" till the cows come home but nothing will budge until a drastic shift towards a better "Culture" has been nurtured first. Thats an awesomely difficult task in our current context. But, at least, problems can be identified and right steps can be devised and half-implemented ( realisticly, speaking).

Desire for self-improvement is missing at every level. Just take a look at Aftab Ahmeds "fitness" pic at the other thread, And, he was/is an INTERNATIONAL cricketer!
