Right now we already have a core group of players like Mahmudullah, Shakib, Mushfiq, Mash, Razzak and Tamim. These guys have been through the development process and are ready to deliver right now. What we are lacking is pace bowling for which it will be much easier to hire someone and can be short term.
My solution is
-Continue SJ as head coach with focus on team composition, setting game plans and as much individual skill development that can be expected of him
-get a pace bowling coach to stop Shafiul and Rubel from regressing further
-continue with Saqlain for the spinners
