Default BCB want Sourav as batting coach

After a disastrous World Cup that saw their batting collapse repeatedly through the course of the tournament, Bangladesh cricket want to start from the scratch and are seeking Sourav Ganguly's assistance for the same.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has confirmed their wish to have the former India captain as the team's batting coach. “We want Sourav's assistance. He is hugely respected here and his skills and tactical nous will greatly help our batsmen,” BCB chairman Mohammed Jalal Yunus told The Indian Express on Tuesday. They, however, are yet to make a formal offer.

The BCB had earlier too come up with an offer, before Bangladesh's tour of England last year, but Ganguly had turned down the request citing personal reasons. This time, even if he agrees, Ganguly is likely to agree to work more as a consultant than a full-time coach.

Meanwhile, the BCB has already short-listed replacements for Jamie Siddons as the chief coach, with former India all-rounder Robin Singh's name making the list.

The batting was crap, but at what point did our WC become disastrous?

We won 3, lost 3 - of course the losses were HUGE, but I don't think the campaign was disastrous.

As for Sourav, what good are highly regarded past players, when our players, in the main, lack the ability to internalize information?

Put simply, I think at least half the team are thick as sh1t.

If this is true then thats going to be a mistake because ganguly was never a technically sound batsman.. He always lookes very shaky at the begining of innings... May be as a head coach he'll be ok..

Then maybe Sadagopan Ramesh would be a good choice; he was always very solid at the start but could never cross 30-40 runs.

I think Ganguly will certainly do good job for us, if you think him how he was a as a batsman and captain. Actually we need him type of guys who can properly communicate with our boys without any middleman, then he knows how to deal culturally(I mean the right treatment for the right things)..

That'll break the language barrier. Great move and I pray they work something out.

as a head coach he'll do fine im pretty much sure about that.. But as a batting coach? I dont think so.. Our batsman needs someone who really understand batting technically.. Who were technically sound batsman.. Thats why i dont want ganguly as a batting coach.. Just watch srilanka.. They appointed atapattu as their batting coach who was probably their best technically sound batsman..

ahnaf, technique isn't all there is to batting. 90% of cricket is in the mind. and to be fair to ganguly he might not have been MCC coaching manual personified like dravid but he wasn't particularly bad either. you can't score consistently on the international stage if your basics are not ok.

you think he scored 18,000 international runs without really understanding batting technically ?

akash chopra was India's most technically sound batsman of the last generation and he did zilch on the big stage. most BD batsmen are natural players who play on instinct more than following some rulebook to the t. you can't make them a dravid or an amla by appointing a batting coach to the national team. if you want technically sound batsman you need to take care of junior cricket, you don't try to change the people already at the top.
who better than someone like ganguly to address the problems of people who are like him as players, gifted but not having the perfect technique.

hmm... Looks like i was harash on dada..:p but one thing i didnot mention that his techniche was bad.. I just told wasnot good.. Ok.. He may be ok as a batting coach also but dont you think it'll be better someone like atapattu?? And i think ganguly is a great motivator and planner thats why i told we should bring him as head coach..

Dada would definitely bring the courage and fighting spirit that is much needed in our batting but I am not sure if he would have the patience to persevere through our painstakingly slow learning curve...

with all due respect to atapattu he was a very mercurial performer.
his scores look like (I am exaggerating here) 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 205, 0, 0, 0, 0, 180, 0, 0, 0, 0, 5, 2, 0, 103
check it out yourself. http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/eng...g;view=innings

technically he was much inferior to someone like jayawardhane and not that much better than ganguly either. for all his technical ability he had a lower test average than ganguly.
in cricket, mental strength >> technique

Wow, define technically sound here. He's awesome when he gets going and is easily one of the best ODI players of all time. Except his weakness against short ball (which was exaggerated to an extend due to his bad form) his technique is fairly good. And regardless, he's hired as coach and that shouldn't really matter tbh. He's got a great eye for talent and knows how to build a team. I won't mind him as the coach at all.

If the news got any substance, I think it would be a pretty good idea for the team to have Sourav Ganguly as our batting coach.
There is no question about his batting abilities, neither is his leadership skills.
Language, cultural/emotional issue would be a huge bonus. May be our boys would get something in their heads for a change.
