Default BCB not getting preferable coaches

SEARCH FOR WHATMORE’S
SUCCESSOR
BCB getting poor reponse
Staff Correspondent

The search for Dav Whatmore’s successor as Bangladesh national coach has begun in earnest but it appears the response from the candidates on the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s short-list has not been very positive.
It has been learnt from a reliable source within the BCB that three of the preferred names on the list have already turned down the offer. They are former West Indies great Gordon Greenidge, former New Zealand opener John Wright and former Bangladesh U-19 coach Richard McInnes of Australia.
Greenidge was informally approached to come back to Bangladesh by the Board but he categorically stated that he would be available for a short period, preferably for 2/3 weeks. Former Pakistan pacer Aaqib Javed, who recently visited Bangladesh as the coach of the Pakistan academy team, also said he would be available but like Greenidge for a brief period only.
Meanwhile, mindful of the needs of the cricketers, the BCB has stated that if the new coach has a batting background then they would try to go for a specialist bowling coach. And roles would be reversed in the other case.
A six-member committee has been in contact with a number of coaches among them Bennett King, the Australian coach who ended his stint with West Indies after a disastrous World Cup. Since Bangladesh has strong ties with the Cricket Australia they are very keen to retain King’s services. They had openly stated that if King agrees terms then he would be the first choice. The BCB has affirmed that they would declare the name of the new coach by May 15.

kinda surprising, Bangladesh is the perfect team for any coach to add to his reputation by taking them further up the leaderboard tables.

those they have approached so far .. maybe excluding king want an already made team i guess they are unable to be REAL coaches.

maybe give Buchannana month of retirement then ask him, he'll probably be regretting retireing so much hed jump at the opportunity to get back into the cricket.

buchannan already turned down a offer to coach india.he wants to stay in australia for family reasons and he wants a corporate level job now.if the news is true,then king will probably be the next coach.cricinfo once mentioned nasser hussain as a probable candidate.

Wow this is Ironic. As a for career reputation, Bangladesh would of been the best option to build career reputation and yet no one is willing to take the gamble.

Don't forget they don't get the life style that they need. India offers lots of varied things to attract them.

What we gotta do to make Whatmore stay? Man give him some ad space for donuts or something.....and keep him! Damn pakistan kinda screwed everyone over... foreign coach now don't wanna be in subcontinent....

I would be interested to find out why McInnes declined...? you would think this is some sort of a promotion for him... maybe the pay isn't enough? The pay scale should be foreign standard if it's a foreign coach, not Bangladeshi standard. I mean I wouldn't wanna be in a foreign country away from family if I can make the same or close to the same amount doing something related in my own place.....

i dont think Pakistan screwed us over... i think its India's fault... most of the high profile coaches like John Wright are eagerly waiting for the decision of BCCI.... in a way i think its good for our cricket... we dont want a half hearted coach who is always waiting for an offer from our neighbours... i believe every thing happens for a reason... and i am pretty sure there are good news and opportunities awaiting for us...

but i agree with u about the salary they are offering to these foreign coaches... i hope they are not acting miser...

If India gets another coach Whatmore may end up staying in BD

Agree, you are partially right. But I am sure McInnes won't be getting an Indian offer any time soon...nor will Greenidge though I don't know why Greenidge was apprached in the first place...

Then you see coach like Moody not interested in India....what gives? So I wouldn't blame India entirely though they are at fault for everything... like me not able to eat ilish mach is India's fault...:p

I guess some success with Whatmore for the national team did not improve our bad reputation as poor administrators (read employers) in the World Cricket arena.

It was difficult enough a job for us to hire a good coach back when we were appointing Mohsin Kamal-Ali Zia, it still is, now.

Anyone else heard the NTV sports news today?

Yes, someone mentioned that too. I forgot which thread that was on. But his source was NTV as well.

If BCB does end up staying, I would say that we should get a good bowling coach for a short term, and then get a good batting coach for another short term. I would prefer the batting coach over bowling coach first. By short term I mean 1 to 2 years. I think Aqib is willing to come for 1 year, and so is Gordon.

We need some bowling coach who mastered the art of reverse swing. That's why Aquib won't be a bad choice as a bowling coach.

I am surprised to see McInnes declined, earlier reports indicated McInnes was not even in their list. I wish McInnes would let us know if he was really approached or not.

If he really did turn the offer down, then ....

Whatmore, at this point, is the top contender for the India job. I will be surprised if he ignores India's interest and agrees to stay with us.

Whatmore top contender for next coach

Dav Whatmore, presently coaching Bangladesh, is the top contender as Team India's coach, according to Times Now .

According to the report, Sri Lankan coach Tom Moody is out of the reckoning for the top job. Meanwhile, team manager Ravi Shastri has been asked by the BCCI to observe Whatmore during the Bangladesh tour.

After Chappell resigned in the aftermath of India’s disastrous World Cup campaign, Whatmore had said he was willing to take up the job if an "opportunity came along".

"I'm definitely interested," Whatmore had said.

- India Times
I guess we just have to wait for India and Pakistan to make their picks, and then select from leftovers. That, I think, is a better option than making a hasty decision about someone.

It seems Dav also became ill-tempered like our batsmen. He is changing his mind too frequently. Doesn't seem to know which shot to play. I think he is really not in a mind frame to continue with BD. With all the due respect i think BCB should give him a nice honourable farewell and get a new coach.

thats a minnow mentality, BCB needs to work out how much they want to spend and then select accordingly and be very aggressive in their negotiations, no doesnt always mean no, it means no untill i have a reason to say yes

no offense intended but the sub continent countries sometimes are alittle too polite and accomodating, which isnt a bad thing but sometimes you just need to go after what you want instead of waiting to see what crumbs fall your way from the prima donna sides India and pakistan.

From this DS report, it appears Wright and McInnes are still in consideration.

BCB shortlists Whatmore successors

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has short-listed the names of Dav Whatmore successor.

It was learnt that former India coach John Wright and former Bangladesh under-19 coach Richard McInnes are also in the four-member short list.

"We started with ten names but now we reduced the list twice and hopefully within a short time we can reach a conclusion," said a BCB high-up on condition of anonymity.

"What I can assure you is that all are from Australia and New Zealand and there is also a big name in the list," he added.

BCB is also searching for specialist batting and bowling coaches for the national team.
