No Doubt he is one of the Legendary West Indian players. Wish him all the best as Bangladesh Cricket grows with him(his first major coaching stint)...

It is a gamble with him. let's see if it pays off

He showed a great sportsmanship in 1987 World cup semi final match against Pakistan. Although WI lost that match, but Walsh proved that cricket is indeed a gentleman's game.

TBH, his most famous innings was his 0* off 14 spine-chilling balls, batting with the great BC Lara in one of the greatest chases in Test cricket history:

I also welcome Walsh, his Test carreer is amazing and that's what we need to become a good test bowling unit.
But I am also concerned about his safety in BD, too many cables,wires hanging there.

I love him as a bowler. One of the greatest no doubt.

But I won't get excited until I see the changes he is gonna make since this is his first high-profile coaching assignment. It's a big gamble and hope it pays off.

Welcome Mr. Walsh - hope you can install some of caribbeanm Bob Marley-ish relaxed mentality in our players. Especially Mushy can use some of that.

This is very much a plus:

Quote:
"We don't have bowlers like Dale Steyn in our team. Our bowling attack needs to do well for a number of years, and not just now. We need a bowler who would take 300 Test wickets, so for that one has to perform for a sustained period. There must be ways how that can happen, and I think we learn that from him [Walsh]."

Mashrafe said it would be important to see how much the Bangladesh pacers pick up from Walsh during his three-year stay, a key takeaway being the methods he employed to stay fit through most of his 17-year international career.

"One of the reasons why I admired him was his endurance," Mashrafe said. "His run-up was so smooth that they said even the umpire couldn't hear him running in. There was always a smile on his face. He was a great character. I think we can learn from him how to stay fit.

"If everyone wants to learn from him eagerly, then they can get a lot out of a coach, because they are always trying to help you."

Taskin, who is preparing to go to Brisbane to have his bowling action reassessed on September 8, said he wanted to learn how to generate extra bounce from a good length, which was Walsh's forte in his heyday.

"I first want to learn how to gain extra bounce from a good length, which he did so well. I will try to understand the technical side of it, though I don't have the strength like someone from the Caribbean.

"I will also try to learn how he remained fit and without injury for so long in his career, and also he bowled those long spells in Test cricket."

Taskin's father always talked to him about Walsh and Curtly Ambrose. Taskin watched them on TV and YouTube and met Walsh in 2014 but didn't have a long conversation. "But now I have him as coach," he said. "It is quite thrilling."

While Taskin heard about Walsh from his dad, Mashrafe says he has always idolised him. He is excited about spending time with the West Indies legend in the dressing room, and wants to pick up new tricks that may help him at this stage of his international career.

"I am excited that I can meet my idol in cricket," he said. "I consider it a big deal to be in the same dressing room as him. I have always liked him, especially because he was so different than the other fast bowlers in his era. He would always smile in the field. And it was not just as a bowler but also as a character.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/banglade...y/1052861.html

as long as Walsh can transfer his natural talent to others then indeed a great addition to the squad. Hopefully he doesn't get mistreated by board like Gordon Greenich in the past(very unfortunate)
