Default More coaches for national team

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to hire three-specialist coach for different areas for the national team and age-group cricketers.

High officials of BCB confessed they were negotiating with a number of cricket coaches but said they had not finalised on any coach as yet.

“It is true that we are negotiating with a numbers of people who may come here within a month to work in various departments for the national team. The coaches will also look at age-group teams, like U/19 team,” said the BCB cricket committee chairman Mahbubul Anam to New Age.

“The National team may have the service of this specialist coaches for a specific time before West Indies tour,” hinted the cricket committee chairman.

BCB boss Ali Asghar confirmed the information.
“Chief executive of BCB, Mackay Dudhia, is negotiating with a number of people. However, we have not confirmed any one. Dudhia will submit a list, possibly by the next meeting, where everything will be finalised,” said Asghar.

It was however learnt from a BCB advisor that negotiations were on with West Indian fast bowler Andy Roberts, Indian spinner Shiva Ram Krishna, Australian coach Mike Young, a baseball specialist, and Sri Lankan Wayne Mataya as well as two coaches from Zimbabwe.

The decision is one of the proposals of the ‘High Performance Unit’ comprising of national coaches, officials and selectors, a team set up by BCB to improve national cricket in a planned way.

In this new scheme, BCB is also launching a ‘pace bowler hunting mission’ under senior coach Imran Sarwar, in April. The new finds will train under one of the specialist coaches.

BCB had earlier employed Australian Trevor Chappel and Sri Lankan Wayne Mataya as specialist coaches before the satisfactory Zimbabwe tour.

He worked with the Aussies prior to the World Cup as their their throwing and fielding consultant.

Item from CricketNext

Interesting excerpts:

Quote:
"...his inclusion in the touring party is an example of Australia's willingness to look beyond cricket in a bid to improve. ."

"Young's influence can be seen in relay throws from the deep and players tracking each other to the boundary, both moves designed to ensure the ball is returned as quickly as possible. "
And from this article on CricketNext we have this:
Quote:
An example of Buchanan's desire to keep finding ways to improve was his inclusion of American baseball coach Mike Young as a member of his backroom staff for the tournament.
If we have to learn, lets emulate the best - the Aussies. Now if only we could learn to play some mind games and some good solid sledging...

"Mike has been with us for a couple of months and all he players would at test to the difference he has made to our fielding," he said.

i just hope we don't do anything that gets dav upset. looking at how rafique got upset, hiring other coach hopefully won't hart dav's ego. i'd ask him first if as where he feels the necessity of another coach and who that could be.

You have a point there, AgentSmith. I read somewhere few months ago that it was Dav's idea to hire specialist coaches. Hope he's still the chief architect of these plans, after all he bears the final burden.

Wayne Mataya is an Aussie-Lankan (like Dav) batting coach, right?

I know that Andy Roberts (a specialist fast bowler) came here earlier and founded the potential in Mashrafee and Talha; and that he is most possibly a specialist fast bowling coach.

What about Shiva Ram Krishna of India? Is he a leg spinner?

Shivaram Krishnan was the star legspinner of India during 1985 mini-world-cup which India won. We saw his bowling during that series, courtesy channel 9. His tenure was very short though due to his indisciplined life-style. But he may be of immense value to Ashraful and Kapali.

Is this Laxman Shivarama Krishnan ?

I believe his debut was with Azharuddin - and subsequently he went to destroy the WI on a controversial wicket.

Hi Pundit, Laxman Sivaramkrishan did play during Azharuddin's debut test, But he is not the same bowler that destroyed WI.

I guess you are talking about Narendra Hirwani.

well i think what ever the board does i think it would be a good idea for them to first consult with coach dave. because we really shouldnt do something which upsets him. because we really need him. i am sure he will take us a long way.

Laxman Sivaramakrishman (breath) was an even more transient flash in the pan then Hirwani. In early 80s, he destroyed the visiting English team in Bombay taking 8 fer in one innings and 12 over all in the match. He had 20 or so odd wickets that series but after that nothing much and he made an early exit from the international scene.

Hey, where's WIFan? I believe he'll come here once the England tour of West Indies is over?

Have anyone been following the England tour of West Indies closely, anyway?

(I'm not, too busy with mid-term exams) Isn't West Indies acting like the same way that they were acting against Zimbabwe? Twice they were beaten by Zimbabwe, and on the 3rd match, suddenly Gayle and Lara and others remembered one morning that they're playing for the West Indies, and started to win the rest of the matches and won the One Day series against Zimbabwe at last?

Default Lessons from the on-going Indo-Pak series

The more action I see of this series the happier I get that the BCB is spending so much time and resources trying to get our physical fitness, fielding, batting and bowling up to par using professional specialised experts. In my opinion, the deciding factor between the two sides (India and Pakistan) have been the professional attitude and physical fitness (shown through their superb fielding and stamina) of the Indian side. I believe our team is also on the right path. Let us ensure all the essential ingredients (physical fitness and professionalism etc.) are in place so that talent does not go to waste.

Pompous, I agree with you completely. I too am glad to see the BCB actually spending time/effort/money to improve the professionalism of our cricketers..

A recent article on Cricinfo speaks about this in the context of the current series.
Quote:
India have this almost sewn up because they are clearly the hungrier side. That had much to do with the fact that, under John Wright, they have embraced professionalism. Pakistan remain a ramshackle outfit, rooted in the amateur era, with no qualified fitness trainer and no concept of discipline. On the other side of the world, England have dominated the West Indies for precisely the same reasons.
The link - Triumph and defeat

ps. The Aussies are the consumate professionals - that's why they are the best.
