Default The Tigers' new teeth and why we miss Richard McInnes

Credit of course to the helmsmen on ship - Lion Hammer and Streak.

Here's an article by Dileep Premchandan on the Guardian.

Bangladesh’s ODI rout of Pakistan shows new breed of Tigers have teeth

Quote:
This time, there was no Misbah-ul-Haq to blame, no #Misbahsfault trending on Twitter. These are changing times for Pakistan cricket but not necessarily better days. Not yet anyway.

Both teams had made quarter-final exits at the World Cup but, while Bangladesh had gone home to a heroes’ welcome, there had been only gloom and cynicism about Pakistan’s return. At that stage, it wouldn’t have been unfair to suggest they couldn’t have thought of better opponents to get back into the groove against than Bangladesh.

And later in the article:

Quote:
One of the many architects of this Bangladeshi surge was many thousands of miles away. Between 2003 and 2005, Richard McInnes, an Australian, spent time setting up a high-performance centre and coaching the Under-19s and A sides. Back then, as Bangladesh were being embarrassed by teams such as Kenya and Canada, he told anyone who cared to listen that it wouldn’t always be that way. “Watch for the next generation of kids,” he would say. “They’re not intimidated by anything.”

Good article. It's the belief in their abilities and the sense that they belong which is making the difference in my opinion. The talent was always there.

"Watch for the next generation of kids"

"They're not intimidated by anything"

-- if they're beating everyone and everything in under 19s why can't the do that at the senior level?

Case in point :Shabbir, confidence personified, winning mentality, hungry Tiger.

Richard McIness is one of Bangladesh's best and most successful coaches in its cricketing history. The work that he had done in the mid 2000's, and later in his second stint has had a positive impact on our cricket.

Its unfortunate that he isnt around to continue the good work. And the position he left is still vacant atm.

Who might that giant be? Bangladesh? Let's not get ahead of ourselves. While I am enjoying this dream run of our team, I am not going to start day dreaming. We are playing some excellent cricket at the moment against a team that is also not at their best. It does not fully disclose what our real strength is. Test series against Pak will be one way to find out before we meet other opponents such as SA, Ind in oneday series.
