Default Breeding ground is HP - thanks McInnes

Age is not the only sign of adulthood. One could realise this after Bang-ladesh's splendid five-wicket victory against India in Port of Spain early Sunday where three teenagers stunned the world cricket fraternity.Wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim, middle-order batsman Shakib Al Hasan and dashing left-handed opener Tamim Iqbal showed in the match that age could never be the sole criterion of maturity. Just imagine that the three players' average age is 18 which was good enough to embarrass the formidable Indian cricket team under the tutelage of former Australian great Greg Chappell.
They have already been branded as the 'young brigade' but now the immediate question is where the products were actually made? The answer is they derived from the last few years' development programme undertaken by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) under its High Performance (HP) programme.
If former BCB president Saber Hossain Chowdhury had initiated it then Arafat Rahman, former chairman of the Development Committee, brilliantly carried on with important programme that harvested a rich crop in the Caribbean.
"I must say it was the outcome of the BCB's development programme. What the young guys did yesterday is the result of this programme. The board focused on this work when we had thought that there would be huge a vacuum in the pipeline if we didn't take such kind of initiatives," said BCB general secretary Mahbubul Anam.
"The programme is ongoing in a more intense way and I strongly believe that its results would be
immense," he added.
Many was surprised how it was possible for a 18-year old wicketkeeper-cum-batsman, Mushfiqur Rahim, to keep cool in the middle not only behind the stumps but also with the bat during his 56-run unbeaten knock. It was not only his first World Cup match but also only the 12th one-day appearance.
Playing only his fifth one-day international how a 17-year old batsman, Tamim Iqbal, shattered one of big giants' attack in the competition remains a big surprise for many outside the world while Shakib, an example of coolness only at the age of 19, holds a stunned average of 55.07 after 21 ODIs.
They are of a generation groomed under different circumstances by getting more opportunities than their predecessors but also have gone through a disciplined programme which made them mentally tough.
"I must thank Richard McInness because he did a tremendous job with these boys to make them not only physically, but also mentally, prepared to compete in the highest level. He actually modelled this programme," Mahbub praised the Australian coach.
But unfortunately, it seemed that the programme has got stagnant in recent times although the BCB general secretary demanded that they have expanded it after the making of the BCB National Cricket Academy.

Thanks McInness. I still think BD should go for him after Dav goes/retires from Bd coaching job. I am not sure but he might get an offer from Pakistan now.
If Dav goes We should try 120% to get McInness our coach. Can u think what will happen in 2011 if he is the coach and all his young lads r playing in big league by then. we will be one step closer to win the cup.
Hats off to you sir for the HP squad

We were very lucky and blessed to have McInnes. Too bad we could not hold on to him.

I don't feel Alister is/will be a good replacement of McInnes, there has been nothing impressive since McInnes left.

McInnes and Whatmore have both been fantastic in the development of BD cricket. Hopefully, Whatmore is signed on and McInnes is brought back at some stage.

It will be interesting to look back in 5 years and see how many are still there.
McInness said this in January 2005. Six of these players played in the team that beat India. Nafees Iqbal's younger brother is in the team, and he himself will hopefully be back soon. Rajin and Rajib are in the Caribbean now. I found this very interesting.

To look back and think that our so-called sports journalists were ripping him apart because he wanted the players to drink Gatorade!

This quote worries me slightly

Richard was the architect of the BCB youth program and the hard work put in by everyone is paying dividends, it would be a crying shame if they dont continue with the program and keep nurturing more future stars.
