I am not sure the Projapoti can be a stock ball due to it being hard to control for fast bowlers. It's easier to throw but harder to bowl (straight arm). Trying to use that zero rotation for fast bowling has been the challenge. But with some tweaks we got it now

I would imagine we will play to our strengths in all our matches in Dhaka and Chittagong. It has what has won us 7 out of 8 ODI's.

2. Any news on the curator and the pitch preparation? Would an 'ideal' that would benefit us be slow-turning low bounce typical sub-continental pitch?

Thanks.
1. SA are a world-class side simple. World Class teams can play on any surface as they have a squad of players who can deliver. I have to say that SA are not amazing against SPIN though on pitches that turn. Right now our spin bowling department is the best in world cricket... and our pitches turn.

To play on bouncier pitches you have to play differently than on slow, low ones. Tighter technique and more feet movement for the batters. Just flaying at the ball when it bounces and moves is not the answer.

2. No news. Not my department.

Coach - not relevant to Bangladesh but Cameron MIrza just made the headlines. You've had some nice words to say about that young man. Could you share a little more with us? My personal interest is in seeing native born Americans taking up and doing well in cricket.

Thanks Zunaid... Cameron is one of my elite students. he came with me on my pro camp to South Africa in December 2009 and then went to Mumbai with my players in December 2010.

I first saw Cameron playing as a 14 year-old when he came to a cricket camp I ran in NJ through Dream Cricket. His parents have been sending Cameron to me two to three times a year in the UK and I have been three times out to New Jersey. You can find Cameron's clips on youtube... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjH8kugjcDw

I feel he has a chance to play professional cricket and is committed to a chance in the UK. It's a long road but he is prepared to do the work.

Wow...his pool/hook reminds me of Ricky Ponting! Hard to believe a cricketer from USA (!) can play shots like this!
That means ....you do coach Batting as well?!

I think I saw Rubel bowl the Projapoti in the nets on NTV news. Tamim completely miscued his shot and it went up in the air.

Hi Ian, welcome to banglacricket.com. Good to see a "Red Devil" fan is coaching our bowlers. BTW I'm a Chelsea fan and believe there are only 2 teams in Manchester: Manchester City and Manchester City Reserve

I've got few questions for you - hope you will find them interesting to answer

Q1. Do you think we will need a spin bowling coach?

Q2. (Assuming BCB will be intelligent enough to renew your contract) Do you want to get involve into grass root coaching to discover new and raw talents?

Q3. Can you please convince BCB to prepare at least one stadium with pacer friendly pitch? (Same like Mohali, Perth or Durban…I personally think Rajshahi will be a good pick…)

Q4. Do you have any plans to follow-up with ex national pacers and/or Domestic league pacers?
Example:
Talha Zubair
Tapash Baisya
Farhad Reza
Shafaq Al Zabir
And very important IMO - Subashis Roy

(If you don’t know them, maybe a local coach can assist you to locate them)

THANKS Mate - keep up the good work.

Of course.. all coaches teach batting. You have to. I specialised in pace bowling 15 years ago and have built my reputation on that.

I started out my professional career as a middle order batter, after playing England Under 19s and opening the batting at Lord's. I used to bat number 3 at school at set records. So batting is in my blood and I coach it very well.

Both Cameron Mirza (USA Under 19s opening bat) and world class Catherine Dalton (England Academy Ladies opening bat) are my products

You can see Catherine here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEOflWk6VUU

Hi Pont!
I have got a question. How fast a man can bowl? I mean what can be the maximum speed? Shoaib had hit 161kmph and Tait bowled at 160kmph.Is this the limit of human power and body?

Please call me Ian. That is my name.

I think someone will bowl 170 kph but this must be at the very, very top end of the stress put on the body.

1. That is a decision for the head coach and BCB, not me. We already have the best spin bowling department in ODI cricket so we seem to be doing ok without one. Plus the 4 Level 3 coaches we have can assist if the bowlers want their help.

2.My skill is in talent ID and full on development of that talent. I create fast bowlers. I can do the same stuff as any other international bowling coach can do with any Test country (tactical, swing, cutters, yorkers etc etc etc) but I offer PACE coaching that no other coaches offer. And I have the skill drills to go with them and can educate coaches to do my stuff. So I am not a 'normal' bowling coach that you see with sunglasses on standing in nets as an umpire. I can take a country's resources and turn them into a bowling attack to win Test matches. This needs time, investment of money and a commitment and will to deliver it on behalf of the cricket authorities.

3. The BCB cannot simply produce any wickets it likes. This is an ICC tournament and World Cup, not a bi lateral series. Although we are joint hosting the WC the pitches are meant to be as consistent as possible.

4. My brief is National Bowling Coach. This is my title. What the BCB want me to do within that is their call. But please read answer 2 above.

Hi Ian, it's great to have you on the Banglacricket forum!

I've got a question that's not really Bangladesh related. I started following Cricket as a kid in the mid 90's and one of the biggest differencees that I see between cricket back then and now is the lack of quality fast bowlers. 80's had so many greats and during the 90's and early 2000's there were Wasim, Waqar, Ambrose, Walsh, Donald, Pollock, McGrath (perhaps the last of that bunch). Even the second tier consisted of bowlers such as Gillespie, Vaas, Srinath, De Villiers, Gough, etc whereas now all we have is Dale Steyn; Shoaib & Lee are nearing the end their careers while Tait only plays T20s.

What do you think is the reason for this chronic shortage worldwide? Is it the batting friendly pitches, introduction of T20s, new rules eg. field restrictions, powerplays or something else?

Cheers!

Interesting question!

I feel that perhaps many test teams are rebuilding right now. Australia has to. NZ has been shocking. Pakistan have hardly played any Test cricket recently. West Indies lack of quality quicks has been for some time now. SL has never really had a wonderful pace attack and neither has India. England has Anderson and perhaps Broad can step up.

But I have to agree that we are not blessed with too many startling quicks from THIS generation (under 28).

Dale Steyn could turn out to be the greatest fast bowler of all time (strike rate) the way he is going. It is wonderful to have him so far ahead of the rest. But we mustn't forget Morne Morkel who is developing well. Anderson I mentioned is a seriously talented swing bowler now.

The cupboard is a little bare and if I was a front line international batter I would want to play cricket in this era. It is particularly bereft of top class quicks.

It could just be we are going through those times. Someone will emerge and as countries rebuild their depleted resources, I am sure we will discover NEW names to get excited about. Its a great opportunity for any young quick to break through because they will not have too much competition.

I don't think its anything to do with the cricket being played at the top because pace bowlers are created way before this level. It's just we don't have the pool of quicks out there...

Do our players have individual goals as far as bowling is concerned? It's easier in batting to set certain milestones like certain runs or a double ton or something similar but what would be some personal goals players could be working on? Do you encourage them?

Hello coach,

I wish to remind you the bowling action of Andre Russel of West Indies. It is not deadly, but deceiving. He literally stop in his run up just before he delivers it. It may take batsman by surprise that he is stopping and yet not really. Please make our batsman aware of his action.

I was watching his bowling in the Caribbean in C20T tournament. Thanks
