In recent times, BCB has given the responsibility of our Under 19 team to local coaches- Nazmul Abedin Fahim, Minhajul Abedin, Zafrul Ehsan and recently Sarwar Imran. The performances have been very poor. Our Under 19 teams under RM and Alaistair De Winter looked completely different from those under local coaches. Under the two Aussies, our teams were professional, organized and disciplined. This led to good performances, and the talent that came from the system were excellent. Cant say the same about the teams with local coaches. This clearly shows the gulf.
If we are to have local coaches for under 19, why not have those who have had experience with world class coaches, or those who have had success in coaching roles. I would pick Salahuddin or Aminul Islam or Khaled Mahmud or Khaled Mashud over some of the guys BCB has tried. Sarwar Imran cant be blamed much because he barely had a month to prepare the team.
