Instead most of the pacers opt for the slower bouncers and other traditional slower deliveries.
If Shakib would only be a medium pacer...or give lessons on how to dip the ball drastically...LOL!

John Buchanan = Arguably the worst coach ever in the history of Intl cricket.

Hope Pont does well though. Apparently he helped a lot of bowlers like Steyn (in correcting his action IIRC)

One thing I am seriously looking forward to from Mr. Pont is him working with our slower bowlers as well. And by saying slower bowlers, I don't mean the spinenrs but our so called medium pacers who bowl snail-speed deliveries. I remember how Farhad Reza could skid the ball on low wickets...same as Syed Rasel, but unless conditions suit them, they are but grade school cricketers in the international arena.

If they can somehow be made into something like Steve Waugh was, a handy, seriously handy, breezy bowler, it would be awesome!

looks to be a good hoice. somebody with real coaching knowledge and experience. should be far far better than the kluseners, prasads or caddicks, who may have a better bowling career but dont have a coaching career

good luck Pont. i just feel he will make Shahadat a lethal bowler.

Actually Ian Pont believe you increase your accuracy when you're closer to your optimum speed (efficiency wise)

With Point as the coach, you may see our fast bowlers building up more muscles than building up their pace!


Here is a video of Atul Sharma -



Surprisingly, Sharma had very poor endurance. He was always mired with injuries and never appeared for a professional game (does that have to do anything with those excessive workouts?!).

I dunno what happened with the guy but Ian then occured to me as a man who was desperate for some publicity. Probably I'm wrong because things didn't work out as he thought and Atul turned out to be a failure or something, God knows.

Anyways he has good coaching experience, and has good reputation (other than this atul sharma fiasco) to back him. So lets see how things pan out.

Seems to be a good choice. All the best.

Slow bouncer was invented by Pollock.

Also called "Uhh...Ahh" by Shahadat
Also called Short-pitch deliveries by Syed Rasel
Also used by Khaled Mahmud in regular basis, and bowled by the same bowler way before Pollock (Proud of Chacha)

^ doubt it. As far as I know, Nannes is made in Australia. He only played for Netherland because he didn't get a call up in the Australian national team. So I doubt he practiced too much with the dutch team. He would probably join them a few days before the games and than leave.

Amjad Khan of Kent was played for Holland before changing his nationality to play for England.
