So there's no point having a batting coach then if he 'cannot teach anything' to national players?
Shane Warne had Terry Jenner even as a world class player. Allan Donald made a difference to NZ at the WC in fast bowling in 6 weeks. Alistair Cook works with Graham Gooch.
I think you don't understand what coaching is needed. If the players don't have those skills it is up to the coaching staff to give that skill to them, not just sit back and say nothing we can do they should know this already.
