It's simply not possible to win against top 8 nations without playing good cricket.
Miraz makes an excellent point. Our boys do have what it takes. The only question is why does it happen every 10 or so matches? If they can do it once they should be able to do it more than once. It will take the right guide (read coach) to empower them with the belief that they can repeat their successes.

I personally believe Dav is not the answer. He got us to where he could but he is not he right man to take us to the next level. Thanks Dav but.... In true cricket fashion, I would like to give JS the benefit of doubt. That he can now take us to the next level. Unfortunately, what I have seen and read does not give me confidence that he is the man we need. I want to move forward not backward.

Was McInnes the Messiah and we ****ed up?

Forget Siddons as a cricket coach.

If he was your employee, would you keep him in your payroll if he took long vacations after every project (Siddons takes more vacations than any Bangladeshi coach in recent memory)?

What if then you found out that he sued his last employer merely because he had to perform his job duties (an assistant/batting coach's job is to throw the freakin' ball to the batsmen, to make them practice batting), would you still keep him?

What if after this, you did an evaluation after he has spent several months on the job and found out that his so-called strength (i.e. batting) is the one area where the organization has not improved statistically, whereas in every other area, the organization's performance has declined drastically? Would you still keep this employee?

Sue-happy, lazy, vacation-crazy, marked decline in organization's performance: these are good enough reasons to fire any employee. However, our cricket board does not have the balls to do the right thing. Instead, they will pussy foot around this issue and let this guy play out his contract.


Siddons is a batting coach, and based on the results, maybe an overrated one at that. He is definitely not head coaching material. Thank you Siddons. Thank you for reminding me of the Mohsin Kamal era every time the boys take the field. And thank you BCB for ignoring Mcinnes and choosing a glorified batting coach to be the head honcho.

Here is some individual stats (not counting minnow matches):

Ashraful averaged 28 during last two years with Whatmore and is currently averaging 21.5 under Siddons.

Aftab averaged 20.04 during last two years of Whatmore and is currently averaging 17.25 under Siddons .

Tamim averaged 21.55 under Whatmore and is averaging 28.76 under Siddons.

Sakib averaged 32.77 under Whatmore and is averaging 26.63 under Siddons.

how many runs did BD have to score in the matches they won? the biggest was around 250 i think (most were around 230). that's just not going to cut it if you want to win consistently. gone are the days where any team let alone BD can consistently restrict the big teams to 250 or under. if BD are going to win consistently they need to be able to score these 280+ scores that they've started to produce more often under siddons, or at least 250+ scores more consistently (though i'll admit despite big scores coming more frequently under siddons, scores from 250-280 haven't been that frequent which is an issue, actually i don't think there have been any yet in that range).

the main goal for siddons atm should be to get the team scoring 250+ more consistently, if you're going to change the coaching staff at all i'd say make siddons the batting coach, and get a new head and bowling coach. if they had only scored one or 2 big scores under siddons and they were all against associates then i wouldn't be so open to giving siddons more of a chance but since a couple of them were against top teams which has never happened before i am willing to give him a bit more time.

Before finishing, I want to make it very cleat that I am not an anti-Whatmore, nor the right hand of Siddons as my above post might ''sound''. I just attempted to express the facts the way I view it, and my intentions weren't to offence anyone in this thread. Thanks.

Employee does not get any leave by himself or herself. Its employer's duty to grant her employee's leave. When the last time you work only for your employee on the Christmas. The question whether JS is performing his duty or not is entirely different question. but for everything and anything you can't blame JS.

again it is nothing with his current employment. your duty as an employer is to evaluate his performance and take decision accordingly.

its up to employer choice. what they need from him? what was his assigned duties? is there any condition in his employment contract on the short term evaluation and outcome? most importantly capability to evaluate your employee. so it is up to BCB what they want form JS.

i think all these adjectives are more appropriate for BCB. and if the quality of employer is such a poor, what could you expect from her employee?

I am not defending JS. what i just try to say that you can't blame JS for anything and everything where fault is someone else.

Can u provide us the avg of these players for the 1st two years of Dav?

I can see why people might start to dislike him but can't belive some of them r actually comparing him kamal and jamal jokers.

Its funny how some of the improvements and getting denied cause it was too early for JS to do anything? Can any one tell me how many session Inidan coach needed to fix Shevag? Please its too early. you guys may be right about JS but its early to spot that. What u guys r saying here all r in hunch without any solid evidence. you can't have any evidence cause its too early... And if you don't think BD wins were fluke then tell me what is fluke? IR has beatn us so did Canada? so r they very good team just because they have beaten us (i might add soundly too). I bet if you teach monkies to play cricket in 100 years they will also win one or two games in ODI. but show me a single fluke TEST win and i will take my words back.

I want to see a different TEST BD team. ODI means nothing to me...

How are you sure it is somewhere else?

A person like JS who didn't mind sueing his own board, who called all of us ignorant if we are thinking of winning etc etc, do you think that such type of person even cares for a permission for leave? He went off to Aus from Pak, even didnt come back from Pk with the team, so what do you think, that BCB should have sent police with him? to escort him back? Don't blame everything on BCB either. BCB didn't force him to take leave that I can guarantee.

BCB's fault was to select him as the coach and the rest is on JS. How can someone blame BCB for poor performance? Yes BCB can help by removing JS for sure. If you meant that, yes I agree BCB is at fault by taking too much time to remove him.

Unfortunately that's not the case. The truth is our batting has also declined under Jamie Siddons.

If we look at the last 26 matches under Dav Whatmore,

-----------------Span Mat Won Lost Tied NR W/L Ave RPO HS LS

Dav Whatmore
Last 2 years
2005-2007 26 4 22 0 0 0.18 21.66 4.17 265 108

Out of the last 26 matches against top 8 teams, we won 4 of them, that's 15% success rate.

Siddons era
17017000.0020.924.2328593

During Whatmore's last 2 years we had a batting average of 21.66 and during Siddons era the average fell to 20.92. A difference of about 0.7 which is about 8 runs per match.

Most importantly Bangladesh used to bat for winning purpose and now Bangladesh play to lose and try to make about 200 runs. But still they are trailing Whatmore's average against top eight teams by 8 runs!!!

Now, if we look at the similar number of matches.

Dav Whatmore
final year
2006-2007 16 3 13 0 0 0.23 21.34 4.15 265 112


It again shows, we were a better batting team (average 21.34) and won 3 matches out of 16, while we have lost all 17 matches under Jamie Siddons. Our next 3 matches are against Australia in Australia which means in no time the 17 match losing streak will be 20 match losing streak.

Now, during Whatmore's final year we conceded 5.04 runs per over, during Siddons era that jumped to 5.96 runs per over. It means on an average our opposition are scoring about 45 runs (a difference of 0.92 runs per over) more against us. Now, if we look at the bigger picture, decline in batting coupled with huge decline in bowling, it is very easy to understand why we are losing consistently.

Add the change in mentality and decline in fielding... a perfect recipe to make Bangladesh a laughing stock in international cricket.

I don't see a single reason why we should keep Jamie as our head coach and keep faith in him for a longer term.

Fire Jamie and that will be a small step in right direction.
BUSTED.

Thanks Miraz. JS, The most 'stat manipulative' and 'self promoting' coach we ever had.

Among those players, only Ashraful played a significant number of matches during Whatmore's first stint with us. It took Whatmore some time, but he had turned Ashraful into a match winner. I am not blaming Siddons for Ashraful's current downfall, but Siddons apparently can do very little to help Ash.

The main point is that no batsman, except Tamim, has yet shown improvement under Siddons, comparing to their previous records. Then again there is Sohel bhai who claims Tamim evolved on his own even before Siddons came along.

I am not writing off Siddons as a batting coach (on contrary, I have little doubt left that he sucks as a head coach) based on individual stats in last 7 months, I am just trying to point out to Siddons fans that there is not much reason yet to beat that 'batting improvement' drum so hard.

I Think He Is Perfect Coach For Bangladesh . He Know Where Is Our Batsman Problem . Thats Why Batting Is Getiing Better Than Before . Thats Not Our Problem Our Main Problem Is Need Some Good Bowler Who Could Atleast Control Other Team Batsman . Alleast One Good Fast Bowler Who Could Bowl More Than 90 Miles And One Good Spinner . Than Everything Will Be Allright . Because Bowler Can Make Big Difference In Cricket . No Good Bowler Thats Why We Are Little Bit Good In 2020 .

i wont say much... cause ive went about writing about this issue everywhere... siddons isnt qualified to be a head coach for certain... as per miraz's stats it seems he doesnt have the qualifications of a batting coach either... my point is during whatmore's era we went into a game with a win attitude... now the coach shouts at us and tells us we suck and we cant win so we go in there to loose... thuse even after scoring 280+ our boys didnt seem remotely as confident as they were back in the game where bd defeated india in 2004... i miss the winning attitude of the boys.... thankyou siddons...! and thankyou bcb for not keeping dav!

It's simply not possible to win against top 8 nations without playing good cricket.
In no way I am doubting those wins as fluky. I have watched all the major triumphs of Bangladesh, and we outplayed them in every departments in each of those victories. But the point I am really trying to make is, our performances fluctuated greatly under him and on most occassions, it was 'greatly' one-sided, not just 'one sided'. Yes, he managed to bring in the best out of us and showed the world what we're capable of, but somehow, that didn't follow a rhythm. It was best on one of the days and worse just the other day. Moreover, after Whatmore's departure, the outcomes of our matches were comprehensive defeats, and not even close to putting up fights. This suggests those glorious wins were mainly because of 'Whatmore' factor, and after he left, it seemed the players were more dependant on that 'Whatmore' factor rather than on their perplexed minds.

Miraz bhai weren't you the one who said you'd only change your avatar when Bangladesh beat a major test playing nation? And now you're saying you'd take 3-4 fluke ODI wins instead. Remember this fact you can never have a fluke test win because to win a test match you have to repeat your first innings performance in the second innings as well. And unsurprisingly we only had one test win with Whatmore's approach which was against Zimbabwe(not a fluke result that one). But with Siddons approach I believe if he has the same time as Whatmore, the same support from the fans and adminstration he will win us more test matches and thats a guarantee.

The impatience shown here is typical of us Bangladeshi fans.

At least give JS the amount of time given to DW and then make a comparison. Dave gave us some great short term improvements, but in real cricket (TEST), neither our temperament not technique seems to have improved much. Given enough time, JS might instill that basic sense of not 'give away my wicket'.

Lets have some patience, its a very young international team, the coach needs time to mould them. Lets not forget the quality of our players either - we shouldn't expect rapid improvements.

I do not agree with most of you.

1) Transition is not easy, when a change is being made. Any sector. Wither the storm and have patience.

2) BCB faults to appoint a nadan Captain, who knew nothing about captaincy and learning on the fly. This becomes extremely hard on any coach, cause the captain is the eyes and ears of the coach on the field.

3) Comparing Jammie Siddons with Mohsin kamal is UNCALLED for. Especially from seasoned veterans here at BC. How can you forget we got a scare against Canada and Zimbo losses and loss to Ireland? And a reminder to everyone that was under Dav Watmore. The feeling at that time must worse than now. Naki SA - haranor utshahey shob maf?

4) This is a knee jerking thread with everyone's vemon spitting.

5) Compare to any era of Bangladesh era, this is our best stable middle order we have got. Let Shakib comeback, Aftab fight for his place. The batting would be much much better than any time.

6) Finally, I will play my "too young" card.

So what happened to BD team when Siddons took over? Go find some stats that how many knew players were introduced during the last eight months? We are getting close to find a nucleus now. It will take few more trips for sure.

Why are you not willing to give him time? Why are you comparing Dav's last year stat to Jiddons eight month stats? Compare apples vs apples. This team is much younger than DW's. So then would need more time to settle. I do not like some of his approaches. That does not mean I would call for his head.

You have a lot of connection with the players. Do all us a favor if possible. Do a secret voting on the players themselves on did they improve their batting in JS's last 8 months. Do not manupulate the question. Just ask them straight. Or -- Atleast ask BCB to do this on their one year evaluation process. Feedback is too important for any project.

You would get the honest answer from the hourses mouth. Peace!!

Excellent analysis Miraz. Stats speak for itself and no one can deny that. Siddons should really rethink about the strategy which must include the technical improvement, moral support (given that he understands what triggers our boys' mind that is nurtured by our culture), and finally a game is about winning not targeting 240 runs. Siddons is certainly missing the concept of moral support and does not even acknowledge that we can even win as if we never won.

As many people have said (Drubo and tigers_eye) it's too early to judge Siddons and it would be unwise to sack him just yet!

Let's see what happens in australia and the test series in south africa. When remembering the past it is too easy to view everything with rose tinted spectacles. In the past, Dav made comments similar to those that siddons is making now about the plight of bangladeshi cricket and the deficiencies of first class cricket in the country.

But the dav period is over. times have moved on and so must we. we are in a period of transition, khaled mashud, mohammed rafique and probably habibul bashar will never play for BD again so it will take time for the new players to become established.

The only appointment that was significantly wrong was that of Ash as captain (and I don't think siddons had anything to do with that). If Kapali can keep his place in the side and perform in ODIs i think he should be made captain in the new year...

He doesn't seem that rude a person, the vacation was probably pre-approved by the BCB before a month or so. And I am also sure that once he knew he was close to getting the job he bother to do some research atleast. Why would you blame him for not knowing anything about Bangladesh, how many international cricket pundits follow every BD game? And did he ever think he was going to be in charge of Bangladesh cricket team? And do you remember how the whole coach search program was carried out by the BCB after 3-4 months they came up with 3 names, one of them was John Harmer and when he came to Bangladesh I though he was our new coach but as it turned out he was only there for a camp and was never interested in the job and subsequently all 3 candidates, including Siddons turned down the job. Then one day on The Daily Star I find out Jamie Siddons has been appointed coach.
Dude, u sound arrogant and kind of people who wouldn't accept the fact because u have to be right. I am not a cricket Pundit, but I can gladly say that I have followed every single match since 1997. Siddons was given a complete analysis video which he said was Blank!!!.

Most of the guys here was fired up against me for talking about hiring an "amateur" coach for such a high price...

Its funny how some of the improvements and getting denied cause it was too early for JS to do anything? Can any one tell me how many session Inidan coach needed to fix Shevag? Please its too early. you guys may be right about JS but its early to spot that. What u guys r saying here all r in hunch without any solid evidence. you can't have any evidence cause its too early... And if you don't think BD wins were fluke then tell me what is fluke? IR has beatn us so did Canada? so r they very good team just because they have beaten us (i might add soundly too). I bet if you teach monkies to play cricket in 100 years they will also win one or two games in ODI. but show me a single fluke TEST win and i will take my words back.

I want to see a different TEST BD team. ODI means nothing to me...
Kabir Bhai, the aussi con artist successfully coned you. Why you need the average of first two years of DW era. You like JS reinventing the wheel. We should compare the last year of the previous coach (in this case DW) with the last year of the present coach (in this case JS). You need hard eveidence. Cricket is a game of number and the evidence of numbers show that he failed miserbly. You compare win of Canada/ Ireland againest us with our win againest the big boys. We won 8 out of 30 games; what is the corresponding number for Canada and Ireland. The number is 1 and 2. In 2007 we were feeling that we are becoming the new Zimbabue (the old Zim). Instead of new Zimbabwe we became the Kamal's Bangladesh.
Regarding test win, I belive we could win the game agaienest SA if DW was in charge. I was in the stadium when SA start chase. Even before SA inniges I could see from the face of players that they do not believ they can win. On the other hand agaienst Aus till Mash drop that catch players body language was saying that they belive that they could win. Same goes for the Pak match. We need a head coach who is motivater. His job is not to correct batting technique. That is the job of batting coach. Unfortunately JS is doing that.

Why are you not willing to give him time? Why are you comparing Dav's last year stat to Jiddons eight month stats? Compare apples vs apples. This team is much younger than DW's. So then would need more time to settle. I do not like some of his approaches. That does not mean I would call for his head.

You have a lot of connection with the players. Do all us a favor if possible. Do a secret voting on the players themselves on did they improve their batting in JS's last 8 months. Do not manupulate the question. Just ask them straight. Or -- Atleast ask BCB to do this on their one year evaluation process. Feedback is too important for any project.

You would get the honest answer from the hourses mouth. Peace!!
With all due respect, how do u defend 4 debutant against South Africa? His arrogant comments, lack of knowledge about BD players, frequent vacations and killing natural ability of players are the reason why people are questioning his position.
