a question to the coach- may be you cant answer it for obvious reasons but i will ask nonetheless...arent the teams provided with bylaws which are agreed upon and signed prior to the start of the season? Also isnt it the basic responsibilities for teams to learn and understand the bylaws and clarify any confusion, otherwise how can one actually plan?

I agree with Ian's comment that Sami's bowling success should stop the advocates of spinners in our pitch/condition who want to start bowling with spin all the time and don't want any pacers in their side. Our wickets are also good for fast bowling if one knows how to bowl.
But I have a question whether any one knows who's the coach of Mohammad Sami. This guy seems to generate a lot of pace even after many years of his debut. I mean I really wanna know who taught this guy to bowl really fast. Did he go through some sort of specialized coaching?

Yeah he was considered as the second fastest just behind shoaib akhter at the time of his debut. pakistan seem to produce endless number of world class fast bowlers without any known world class bowling coach.

Shakib, who was shown to be caught behind in his 40s off Elias Sunny but given not out, went on to finish 86 not out and played a high quality innings.

Was the bolded part in the above excerpt from the article really necessary?

Sounded like coming from a captain of a losing side.

Since we are talking about Shakib getting a second life, i wonder what would have happened to DG innings had Dwayne Smith held on to Imran Nazir's catch early in the game. The views from the edge wouldn't have looked so pretty for sure. I'm not too sure, but i think the decision in favour of Shakib was given when he was close to his sixty.

Also I don't agree with the comment that Imran Nazir has been quite a revelation at the top of order in this tournament. Everyone knew what he was capable of and that he's really good for his cameos in this format.

And Dhiman Ghosh is not an emerging cricketer or talent any more. He has played for Bangladesh almost 5 years ago and also one of the regular highest run scorers in the NCL.

Probably Ian wasn't aware about their talents/records until this tournament.

That has been pretty much the story of Bangladesh cricket- Foreign Coaches can learn new methods coaching here due to our 'green field' and all out support. Other than Siddons, Trevor Chappel.. all our ex-coaches, physios, trainers went on to get more lucrative offers after they left Bangladesh..
