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)

Always a pleasure reading your opinions...

On Topic, An opening batsman for a test playing side should know how to play short pitch bowling. I haven't seen Anamul much except for some of his innings in BPL and in T20's in Zimbabwe. But since you got the chance to observe him as a coach so do you think he is adept at playing short pitch bowling? Also in Africa T20's he really struggled against fast bowling, do you agree with that observation?
