Default Aaqib offered coaching role by Bangladesh

link:http://www.dawn.com/2007/05/03/spt4.htm

KARACHI, May 2: Aaqib Javed, the National Cricket Academy (NCA) chief coach, has been invited by Bangladesh to become their bowling coach.

Aaqib, who played a vital role in Pakistan’s victory in the 1992 World Cup, was offered the post during Pakistan Academy’s recent tour to Bangladesh.

In an interview with Dawn on Wednesday, the former paceman said he needed time to ponder over the offer made by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) officials.

“The BCB officials came up with the offer during an informal chat while we were in Dhaka. But I plainly told them to give me at least a couple of weeks to think about it,” Aaqib said. “I don’t want to make any hasty decision due to my other commitments.”

Aaqib, who claimed 54 wickets in 22 Tests and another 182 in 163 One-day Internationals, is seen as one of the leading candidates for the post of Pakistan coach and is also backed for the job by a number of ex-national players.

But the amiable Aaqib, who has guided Pakistan to successive Under-19 World Cup titles in 2004 and 2006, remained nonchalant about such a prospect. “Why should I worry or lose my sleep over it?” he asked. “But if the offer comes my way, I’ll certainly consider taking up the challenge as a great honour.”

The PCB has already placed an advertisement in print and electronic media for the post of national coach that fell vacant following the mysterious death of Bob Woolmer during the just-concluded World Cup in the West Indies.

Dr Nasim Ashraf, the PCB chief, had reportedly backed Aaqib’s credentials during a meeting of the ad hoc committee in Lahore last month, although it was also revealed that the national side may still end up having a foreign coach in the wake of World Cup exodus which saw several high-profile names part company with their respective teams.

Meanwhile, Aaqib, who took up coaching seven years ago, termed the academy trip to Bangladesh highly satisfactory. During the three-week tour, the young Pakistanis chalked up an innings victory in a four-day fixture in Fatullah after having lost the first game by 77 runs in Mirpur.

In the triangular one-day series, Pakistan Academy defeated their Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan counterparts once and lost one game each against them. In the final, Aaqib’s charges scored a narrow five-run win over their hosts.

“Overall, it was a successful tour. Remarkably, our captain Fawad Alam lost all seven tosses. But the lads enjoyed the experience of having to play in adverse conditions,” Aaqib noted.

The coach singled out rookie left-arm paceman Najaf Shah for special praise. “Najaf was simply outstanding throughout the tour. He could be a future star. Other guys like Khurram Manzoor, Sarfraz Ahmed, Atif Maqbool and Fawad also performed brilliantly. These youngsters need to be encouraged.”

If Aaqib decides to accept our offer, he will be a good bowling coach.

As Bowling Coach,Aaqib would be better than Donald,Look at his experience.
And I sure believe Aaqib Along with McGill are the two bowlers who are the most unlucky not to get a lot of matches under their belts.

Aaqib has been trained to a coach... he has been coaching for seven years. His experience makes him a really good candidate.

He's regarded as a bit of a joke figure on Pakpassion. He's ruined a couple of bowlers by remodelling their actions apparently.

Some decent bowlers have emerged under his tutelage too so I suppose there's two sides to that story.

HMMM, I hope he does not take the offer. He might do a Mohsin Kamal on us, well does seem like a nice guy though. But my gut feeling is that it won't be a god fit. BCB can be silly sometimes.

in my choice Allan donald is also not a bad idea or i like someone of waqar younis quality
he only coach pakistani reserve bowlers like rana naved and umar gul but under his coaching they emerge as a real star and umar gul suddenly become a master of reverse swing and pakistan won the test and oneday seris comfortably against WI
I think bangladeshi fast bowlars need to learn the art of revers swing else they are struggle with old ball especially in test maches

As a bowling coach Aaqib can get the pacer hunt qualifiers an excellent platform to build on. If he accepts the job that would be great.

Just a question, why he didn't submit an application for the Head coaching job for Pakistan and yet he is saying it would be honor for him to coach the team? Does he think the PCB needs to invite him first? If he wants that job, if he thinks he is ready for that job he should apply for it not wait for PCB to take the first move. May be they'll get someone else.

Well sounds like a good idea to me. First of all, he will only be the bowling coach and not the national coach. So there is no need to compare him with Mohsin Kamal. Unlike Mohsin, he has experience as a coach and played international cricket long enough to make adjustments.

Sounds good. Looks like he is a very capable coach and the quality of a very good potential Head coach. Unfortunately only thing that he is missing (for some fans here) is his lack of 'dhola' or 'Kala' skin color. He has a brown skin color like us, and thats a no no for some to qualify for our national team.

I have just one concern if the bowling coach is supposed to work with the national team. In that case my concern is, why are we selecting a bowling coach before finalizing the national coach? After all this bowling coach will have to work under natioanl coach for the national team.

My experience says, the Pakistanis dont understand even a single word, when I speak Bangla. And though we understand many of the Urdu words (Hindi movies did the job for me), no one will even admit that we can speak Urdu. You know the reason...1952.

For Bangladeshis a foreign coach is no problem at all. All the players speak English and I never heard someone is failing to understand Dev or Gordon or Richard becaue of the language.

Now, to the main point, I dont want anyone from the sub-continent as our coach. National team players are expected to be professional and they dont have much to learn from the coaches. Coaches can focus on correcting some small errors; but their main responsibility lies on planning and management, on making the whole team playing as a unit. Because of this fact, a good coach does need to be excellent as a player (Dev is an example). An australian or a south african is a better choice for that purpose. They usually have much more professional attitude.
