Default LIVE and EXCLUSIVE Discussion with Coach Julien Fountain

Fielding coach Julien Fountain has graciously agreed to an interview with BanglaCricket. Just like Ian Pont's interview, I am soliciting your questions. I am assuming the brunt of the questions might be related to preparations for the impending WC and on the chosen 15.

Fire away!

How satisfied are you with the progress the boys made under you so far?

Will you be interested to extend your contract with Bangladesh team beyond the world cup?

Question from Wafi Sattar: On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate our entire fielding unit in terms of agility, hitting the target, speed and overall a fielding unit especially for the World Cup. Are we ready enough to make a big difference with the fielding? Of course match situation matters and that is a whole different story but still, how highly would you rate the current outfit of 15 for the World Cup?

1.What particular characteristic is sin qua non of such players like Jonty, Collingwood, de Villiers and ones like them? [[Of course, it's not always about flashy diving and you did mention that overseas players are more likely to dive because of their related sports like rugby.]

2. Strengths and weakness of players in the 15 man squad.

Q: How have you used your Baseball expertise,tactics and experience with the BD team?Please describe?

Q: Besides bowling, could you elaborate the various inputs you have passed on to our batters. For example, like Baseball style power batting, how does this help the batters, especially with the tail enders?

Thanks- I think he is a very interesting coach to interview? Good Luck!

New Zealand and South Africa are the two best fielding sides in the world.
Can you at least train these boys to field like these two teams? that means a lot of hard work, are they up to it?

  • You know Mushfiqur Rahim is weak in wicketkeeping and often does some mistakes.How are you helping him? or don't you think we should seek for another specialist wicketkeeper continuing Rahim as batsman only?
  • We have been noticing more Run Out occurring in Bangladesh innings rather than breaking opponent's healthy partnership with half/full run out chance.how are you solving this?
  • Rotating strike,taking quick single,longer partnership based on singles & doubles.our cricketers seem to be very weak in these issue.
  • What do you think, How well are we going to do in this world cup?
  • Say something to banglacricket.com and the fans!

    thank you!

Observation: Quick & Sharp return by the fielders, is very important in putting the batsman in pressure and wearing them out by forcing them to run faster. Our fielders seem to lack in this department, they seem to keep the ball in possesion & delay in returing the ball, which allows the bats man to stroll instead of running.

Q1 : Are we going to see some drastic changes during the world cup in our players' behaviour in this regard?

Q2: Which are the areas of our team's fielding, we can expect to see note able improvement during this WC?

How do you pick yourself up after a dropped catch?

Who has the best arm in the team?

Do you think cricket and it's organizers should pay more attention to fielding stats, other than just keeping a track of number of catches a player took?

Q1 You have worked with our lower order batsmen. What do you think is the main reason for our batsmen not capitalizing BPP? Can we expect to see a better performance in WC?

Is there anything that give the subcontinental players, including (or particularly) Bangladeshis, some advantage over players from other parts of the world as far as fielding is concerned?

Looks like a stupid question but I'll ask anyway!

Height! A Bushman tribe in Sudanese dessert consist of all tall people (at least six feeet). Although they'd make an excellent candidate for basketball they would struggle to have the agility of short wicketkeepers.

And no it's not a stupid question. Body mechanics has more to do with using given proportion to optimum level. Big, bulky, brawn don't always win the race.

IMHO.

What level of statistical analysis are the players using? When a Shakib is setting up field placings or an individual fielder is deciding how much to "walk in", are they doing this with the type of knowledge such as, "the opposition batter hits 60% of leg side full deliveries into this spot and 30% of them are in the air"?

With fielders who are not natural athletes what is your approach? "Hiding them" in the outfield or identifying redeeming attributes and up-skilling them in that area to make them specialists? For e.g. Junaed is slow but seems to be a decent close catcher.

Q. What do you think are the basic requirements to be a very good fielder? Also what do you think is more important to be a good fielder - natural athletic ability or practice and perseverence?

Thanks.
