Lot of things to consider here.Ian has some good success with bangladesh.He got the passion for Bangladesh cricket.Only thing lacked with him is lack of experience as head coach.To me if we fail manage a high profile head coach,in that case i am with Ian.I want to utilize his passion for Bangladesh cricket.So I vopted for 50-50 option.

I don't think making it a public poll was a good idea.

It depends on who all are contending with him... But I voted yes, because I think he can be one of the strong contenders.....

We may like a lot of big names... But hardly anyone will like to be associated with us.... We will always get hyped up empty vessel big names.... So, it's better that we chose amongst the Known/proven, skilled and professional new coaches, who will take the job seriously and stick with us for some time. Ian is a very good candidate IMO.

I voted no but it really depends on who applies. Nothing personal against Ian, I appreciate his regular contributions on the site and really enjoy reading his insights. However, it's just too big a risk at this stage of our cricket. If the position for the head of the Academy was up for grabs (which I believe it is) I'd have no hesitation in backing Ian for the job a 100%. He is great at building relationships with his players and acting as father figure for them which would really benefit the upcoming lot but at this level you just need that bit more experience-wise.

Btw, what's the poing of having both no and someone else on the poll? Isn't it the same thing?

Ditto. The last option is redundant.

On the contrary, I think the voting result may change to some extent if the same poll is given with private settings. LOL.

Like BCB cares about what we want

Anyway, I have said this before, Ian has been tagged as bowling coach. And BCB has this infatuation about batting coach. So I think Ian has a very slim chance here to be our head coach.

As far as what I want...to be honest, its way too early for me to say who I want as Head coach. I dont even know who Ian is contending with. I would take him as our bowling coach or our Academy head coach in a heartbeat though..

Voted no. Mainly because I feel we need someone with batting specialty to lead the team. SLA's do a fair job, pacers are as weak and flabby as venomless serpents, but many times we have seen the collapse of the batting. We really need a strong batting team, as the careless shots, fishing, nicks, etcetera which although has been reduced drastically still persists in the team. On the other hand, we can get by with an ok-pace team.

Again, just my opinion.

I think he would be a great coach. He builds relationships with the players very well and seems to have a true love for Bangladesh cricket. The pacers improved heavily under him so he could help with that as well. I'm sure he knows how to help out batsman as well but as the head coach, his main job should be to assist the team in terms of motivation and as a leader in all regards. He would be a great head coach for Bangladesh. We saw what he did with the Gladiators. The man has it. Honestly, he should be given a go.

Ian Pont is a nice dude. And that was his way of saying, I don't really a give a fuzznut. He doesn't want the job. So you can stop all the debate.

And fyi, I voted. I voted on the "Rate-Thread."

Remember Ian Pont was Gladiators coach. He must have seen "Gladiator" movie many times too. He know these famous quotes from the movie .. and voted as "Maximus" himself


Marcus Aurelius: Won't you accept this great honor that I have offered you?
Maximus: With all my heart, no.
Marcus Aurelius: Maximus, that is why it must be you.

I think Ian took the long route to answer the simple question I had presented to him in the other thread. Well one thing is clear, if the man is not interested then there is no debate to be had here if he is suitable or not. Let not waste our time arguing about it when the man in question thinks someone else should be our head coach.
Mods : time to close this thread maybe.

Voted Yes, I’ll always choose a leader who doesn’t want to lead, because he doesn't have the greed for it. If he still accepts this position, it’ll be because of his love/passion for BD cricket, not for power, ambition or money. He’ll be able do his job sincerely without any fear. My thoughts..

Of course we should have this gem in the team management, but as a bowling coach. As the head coach, I think we need an all rounder maybe. Lance Klusner?
