Default science of cricket

hello everyone...We have seen how Australia and England have overcome the likes of Pakistan and India...Undoubtedly they are good cricketing nations but they also know the science behind the sport...recently I read an article that talked about the extensive research Australians are doing with the aerodynamics of cricket balls and how the swing is affected...In the US every sport has scientists doing research to further help the athletes understand the science behind better performance and enhance this performance...It's about time we caught on and did something...It's not that we don't have the intelligence...there are several mechanical/aerospace engineering companies in Dhaka...an engineer from such a company could do wind tunnel tests and other experiments to understand the flow of air around cricket balls and how it the swing is affected by it (along with the roughness of the surface ofcourse)...come on fellows we have to do something...we can't always hope for others to lead us...it's about time we help of our own...thnx for taking the time to listen.

There's hardly any incentive for an independent Bd company to do this type of research at this stage. There isn't enough money in the sport (Bd definitely doesn't play as many international games as let's say, England). When there is enough money laying around in BCB from ticket sales (with foreign teams), and after developing the right infrastructure for the training of the players, etc. etc. etc., it might make sense.

Thanks for the acknowledement.

I already removed my post and will remove this post along with your acknowledgement post for fluency of the discussion.

BTW, you don't have to use all small letters. All we are asking for is the regular / usual rules. I mean, both "Science of Cricket" and "Science of cricket" are acceptable. But "SCIENCE OF CRICKET" gives out a feeling of shouting. We just try to maintain a pleasant reading environtment for everybody and of course need your help along the way.

Thank you very much and welcome to the board.

Well, we do play according to the current ICC calander and the number of matches are readily comparable. Our sponsorship money isn't as high though.

Development of the infrastucture does include attention to the behind the scene factors. We have a team psychologist who pays visit periodically, as an example. Our previous High Performance Manager R. McInnes was a Human Movement Specialist and his expertise was used in the case of Abdur Razzak Raj. Nasir Ahmed Nasu is a computer analyst and the Coach needs his expertise on a daily basis.

We need improvement in all those little areas if we are to stay competative. We are not quite there yet where we'd love to be at this point, but we are making steady progress. Currently for advanced help, we look forward to the Australia and England. But, I'm positive, over time cricket will make radical changes in many sectors of our life and society as well.
