Greatbatch has a very bad record wherever he has taken up coaching. Warwickshrie got relegated from County Championship with him as director of coaching. New Zealand was also terrible under Greatbatch. So pursuing him as an option for the second time could indicate BCB's ignorance, or lack of interest of better coaches.

An article in new age states BCB wants a batting oriented coach which rules out McDermott. It must be stated McDermott has played a key role in the revival of Australia's pace attack in recent times. He has been heavily praised by media, players for his efforts. He is a very hands on coach with high attention to detail. We will be actually quite lucky to have him. All BCB needs to do is appoint another batting coach to work under him. BCB had the same approach in mind when they targeted South African Vincent Barnes for the head coach role. Barnes was South Africa's bowling coach.

Hooper might have been a great leader and captain, but we are at a juncture where we need an experienced head leading the team. Someone who has coaching experience at the highest level. Even coaching an associate country is better than not having any proper coaching experience.
