Default "Edgar John Barlow ... retired hurt"-article by Saber


Given his strong development orientation, Ali also agreed with me that the coach should be someone who could chart a development course for Bangladesh cricket in a manner and along a route that would be commensurate with our potential.
The Development Plan that Eddie put together and structured for Bangladesh cricket was widely recognised at that time by the ICC as the way forward and is still the one that even the current BCB top levels have had trouble finding faults with.
Good initial steps and decisions taken for Bangladesh cricket. But we might have derailed at some point in our development plan?Also " Motivation".

I knew saber is articulated, and smart. Never knew he has very good writing skill as well. Wonderful article and memoire. Amazing paragraphs:

With respect, since Eddie's departure we have already had and will continue to have a coach of the Bangladesh national team in the future too but they will all be replacements, not successors of Eddie Barlow -- a great motivator, a fierce competitor and a wonderful human being.

Thank you Eddie for a memorable innings and I am sure you enjoyed playing it as much as we enjoyed watching you play. To me, at the end, you were neither bowled or caught or run out, nor trapped leg before .... you have simply opted to retire hurt.

I always admired Saber for his contribution to cricket. He had great organisational skills which led to Bangladesh's test status. I always wished he never went to politics and only stayed with cricket.

Good article. But relaying the indepth plan would have helped us understand the great mind of Eddie better.
