BDFlag Reservation, Honesty or is this Frustration :: Dav Whatmore

I am not much of a die hard fan of cricket or even BD cricket team but I am surely a fan of cricket, this is my confession. Cricket is a game that I very much enjoy watching and admire though the name of players or their stats are not memorized.

GENIUS Dav as I see him and specially when it comes to BD team and its current position in the cricket world, he has a very important contribution. He has done a tremendous job with the BD cricket team but one thing does not click.

I have seen him in various interviews be that paper, online or TV, he openly shows his honest frustration with BD team when they perform bad. I am mentioning one below as an example

===============================================
"The boys have got the ability, but a rush of blood here and a rush of blood there and it's so frustrating," said Whatmore in the post match briefing.
===============================================

No matter how bad the team may play or whatever mistakes they might do he is the coach of the team and holds the mast of the team and captain of the team seconds that in the field. Now if he publicly becomes this much frustrated I do not see how he is defending the team and encouraging the boys after a defeat. He needs to be more diplomatic when it comes to criticizing our shortcoming in a game which directs the podium in our favor of ongoing improvement but inside he must deal with the players. This way our so cold "minnow" critics will get less chance.

The very confidence that he wants to be cultured in our players to win games and to make it a habit cannot come from coach showing frustration openly. Even when India lost to BD Chappel was quite diplomatic in showing his frustration with India.

Dav has done a great job and will do more in future as well but it is my opinion from what I have understood that he needs to be an inspiring critic in the media face of the game. In the dressing room he needs to spank the players who failed their performance

Seriously, Dav has every right to say what he says. This team can play a lot better than it currently does. It has immense prospective talent (probably more promise than any other team in world cricket), and all that needs to rectified are things like "rush[es] of blood" etc. which are all mental, and not technical. The mental aspect of the game, one would think, is something that you should be able to master rapidly. But this team, on most occasions, have failed to show good temperament.

Having said all this, I believe BD have played beyond themselves in this world cup. They will get a lot of confidence from this and hopefully this confidence will translate to a better mental game.

Dav has every right to be frustrated, and he made the right comment on his team to let the boys know clearly how he feels. We can easily imagine there was certain instructions from him which players didn't / couldn't carry on. Don't forget those players are professional, and they should know very well how to handle these type of criticism from coach, and to perform as to the game plan.

Am I supposed to decipher that the person is Dav Whatmore's daughter based on her nickname of "Stumped"?? Sorry, but I am not that "savvy" to pick up these kinda things. But I'll keep that in mind ahmed......

Hey there Stumped! Tell your Dad from us that he's doing a good job And seriously, pick up your a$$ and stick it back on :p You too Dr. Naf, who ever the hell you are...

lmao = laugh my *** off...

I did not mean to offend anyone its just that when anyone knows dav his approach to things are often the best way. He is the type of person who does need to yell and rant and rave.. the silent treatment it worse and when he does actually yell its scary. I dun mean to say that everyone should know it... its just funny how people perseve certain situations. They players know when they have done something wrong and media dont need to know about everything. Frustraion is a huge part of coaching and well yeah... im sure u guys know what i mean.

Don't worry Stumped, you haven't offended me or anyone here. We're just having some fun I actually heard your dad speak on an interview and he seemed like a really nice bloke, so I can understand how he might seem scary when he's angry. Interestingly, Ian Healy also mentioned that Dav can get quite angry at times too, so perhaps Dav's temper is a well known fact in cricketing circles But I think the BD cricket team need a father figure like Dav to control them and scold them from time to time, so it's all cool.

PS: Dav might have some more "angry voice" moments with the team now after their two poor performances against the aussies and kiwis...

If anyone goes up to him to ask for his help he will go out of his way. But yeah when he gets angry and shouts he can shout... My mum and i yell at each other all the time.. its more we talk yelling... but my father well u always wanna do the best for him...

Dont be jealous! They are people just like everyone else and well there are nice ones and mean ones like in any country... More than anything I love my time in lanka cos most of them have seen me grow up since i was 11yrs of age! Since dad left for bangla wheni left for aussie i dun know many of them... only the ones i hung out with in the mini world cup in lanka and mash when he came for his knee opp. Mash is a kid and a really nice guy... him and Pilot i know the best.
