I think its a bit too premature to make him head coach after being 5 mins in the job. Afterall, it is a role that requires a LOT of responsbility and top level team management skills and with all due respect, saqi is better off serving us as the specialist spin coach and also work closely with the academy during the off peak. His attention would be otherwise severed. What I'd personally like to see is two specialist fast bowling coach/consultant brought in- 1. Ian Pont who would work with developing pacers within an academy domain who can improve techniques, bowling actions, speeds, accuracy etc. 2. Someone who has been there and done it i.e. Wasim, McGrath, Vaas etc to work directly with the national and perhaps A team pacers to offer insight and advice in how to bowl in certain match situations and when to vary your lengths etc. A bit like what Saqi is doing with the spinners at the moment
