It's not that JS is the first man who understood our problems, he is the first man who is highlighting the problems to cover-up his failures.

We have our problems and every coach has tried to sort that out in their own ways.

Whatmore succeeded to keep the team morale and self esteem high and that resulted in consistent win against associates, Kenya and Zimbabwe. We used to lose against them regularly before Whatmore took charge.

His inspirational coaching resulted in some big wins, but he failed to bring consistency against top teams. He failed, but he never highlighted the problems to save his back, instead he tried to keep the fighting spirit on to overcome the limitations.

Our main problem is the standard of domestic cricket. We are not supplying enough quality players to the national pipeline. We need someone like Siddons, who is a pure batting coach, in between national team and domestic cricket to help batsmen overcome their skill and technical limitations.
You only play good cricket when you win/draw matches.
I am with Bangladesh, whether they win or lose .
