That's true. And damn those specialist surgeons understanding medicine.

In order IMO.. the difficulty in coaching specifics, as a Level 3 Head Coach, out of 10:

Batting 3/10 (it's why everyone does it)
Fielding 4/10 (it's why everyone THINKS they can do it)
Spin Bowling 6/10 (it's why everyone claims they can do it if they bowled it)
Fast Bowling 8/10 (it's why no one ever really does it even if they bowled it)
Wicket Keeping 9/10 (it's why we all leave it alone including those who did it)
Coaching Fans 10/10 (never to be attempted)
