Default New front page article: Interview with Richard McInnes

As spculations is rife over the next Bangladesh coach, nothing could be more timely than a few words with fan favorite Richard McInnes. Enjoy:


Interview with Richard McInnes
G. M. Bashar
It is an open secret that Richard McInnes is amongst the most favourite (at least in Banglacricket circles) to land the next coaching job with the Tigers. He has the experience of working for Cricket Australia for opposition and designing training sessions. In light of these recent developments, we caught up with Richard to share some of his thoughts.

Thanks for that.

I also appreciated the fact that you used my question comparing youth players in the two countries, although you probably meant to ask it anyway.

Very nice interview.

The questions I think were designed to expose the enourmous knowledge and experience this guy have.

Few things glare from the interview:
1) Self assessment.
2) Continual improvement.
3) Structure.
4) Confidence.

Thank you everyone who have helped put this together. Thanks RM for sharing your thoughts and time with us.

I liked this thought of his.

As I said earlier, I would like to see players Test batting averages move from 25 to 30 then to 35 then to 40 etc. It is unrealistic to expect someone who is averaging 25 to instantly bat like someone that averages 45. It will take time. This needs to be underpinned by continuing to improve the domestic first class cricket standard. This is and will always be so important to Bangladesh's success at Test level.
Very realisitc and positive thinking. He has always been a great motivator with good analyzing and hard working capabilities.

Simply awesome! I think all of us here at BC should voice their opinion together for Mcinnes being our head coach, not any assistant coach. He's got a very good approach and moreover, he's already expressed his enthusiasm for coaching Bangladesh for the better interest of Bangladesh, unlike Whatmore who left us for those 'obvious' reasons.

Richard McInnes - For each player to get better! Bangladesh could improve as a team by 20%, but if every other team improves by 20% then we are still behind them.
Are we "we" then?


And thanks a lot to oracle for bringing us this interview

Well what he meant by that is, improving by 20% by following the others won't help. We have to improve by 30% to shorten the gap, and then another 30% to close the gap. That means, our boys have to work extra hard to make anything happen in the near future.

What Shafin was pointing out was the choice of pronoun.

Great article, though I thought asking him to compare the raw talents of players between BD and OZ put him in bit of spot of bother.

I like this very realistic view of his about our players, "I think Bangladesh might be in a position to do more self analysis, rather than worrying about the opposition at this stage of their development." Tells you the whole story of our cricketers, doesn't it?

"In the end its the fault of coach and player" - very nice. This interview is a bright example of professionalism inside an Australian. After reading, it becomes crystal clear what makes Richard so famous.

It means controlled aggression. I have seen that many a times a BD player will get a boundary and, then go for another ridiculous shot and get out. Ash's 2nd inning dismissal is a textbook example. RM also talks about honest appraisal of your own abilities. I think none of the BD batsman has the intellectual prowess to judge it accurately. Either they are too young to contemplate or being continously brainwashed as to how 'talented' they are. We need a coach who can hammer home some senses to these boys.

Umm, One World - that quote of yours sounds out of context, and I couldnt find it in the interview. However I did find this:

He's very right. I am bothered by this attitude of ours. Just see how we're still reacting to Dav Whatmore in this thread!

I know you're pointing it to me bro. But I'd like to clear it out here itself that in no way I am blaming our previous coach. I was just saying he tried to approach the BCCI, and that too in the WC, without BCCI revealing any hint that they wanted him, and we all know those 'obvious' reasons that lured him to take that action, but this isn't the case for Mcinnes. I was just trying to compare, but once again I want to reiterate that I never criticised Dave. Thanks.

... If you don’t test yourself at training, then the only time you get tested is in games. It is better to challenge yourself at training and fail a few times on the way to getting it right, then to train in your “comfort zone”, look a millionaire in the nets and then fail under pressure under the spotlight of the international media and opposition...

... you need to find other ways to challenge players and extend their limits. Prior to the Bangladesh U19 tour of England back in 2004, we trained on the synthetic hockey surface, on an 18 yard pitch with an “incrediball” (hard plastic ball with pronounced seam that swings and moves a lot) to try and simulate the increased pace, swing and bounce we would encounter in England. It overloaded our batsmen, so that when we got to England the ball was actually moving less then it was at training and the results were quite positive, even though we lost the Test series, we produced some good scores and were in a position to win the third test, before rain intervened. Obviously the bowlers had to do other specific training in order to prepare.
This should be the attitude on training, and the reason why I like McInnes.
