Where did this definitive bit of news come from? There is so much baseless speculation going on.
Didn't claim that that was definitive. That was speculation on my part, hence the words 'seems like.' However, it isn't baseless. I heard from a couple of decent sources that there was an initial offer from India on which Whatmore and the BCCI had talks. In any case, after the way Samir got abused on this forum after he wrote about his chat with Whatmore, there was no way I was going to write about it on this forum. If there was some such offer and negotiations based on it, it obviously didn't work out in the end.

And in any case, what does it matter? He is with us for the next two years and thats what counts!

Agreed. All the previuous discussions based on speculations, rumors, half-truths etc has been rendered mute. Actually we may now close all the other threads regarding that "saga" for last couple of weeks. It is indeed a great news to have him signed up until after the world cup. For the sake of continuity it was paramount that we re-sign him. It would have set us back a year or so had he left us at this juncture. His job with us is not even half done. We are just begining to see a semblance of the right combination in the team after two years of some what experimentation. We have established the opening position, middle order and the bowlers for the test team. It is important that now he sees it through as it becomes a cohesive and combative unit. Another two years will ensure that we stay the course as he guides the ship. Its a good day for us and we should look forward to his renewed tenure.

It's a great news to have him with us for next two more years. But mind it - only for two more years not more. We have to look for plan B, plan C etc. at the end of his present tenure of contract.

That means he won't stay with us eventhough Bangladesh comes out with something extraordinary in the 2007 world cup? I wish he stays and commits himself to Bangladesh unless they are no longer a pushover and becomes a force to be reckoned with, like he did with Sri Lanka. However, but at the moment, all focus on the England tour.

I don't think this is the time to think about whether he will stay with us past the 2007 world cup! Its too early. Plus, we might not want him after 2007, even if we do great in the world cup. A team needs to keep evolving and new coaching methods, new styles always add a new dimension. Having Whatmore as our coach has been and continues to be a blessing for BD cricket, but two years later, we may feel that we need someone new! This discussion is useless right now.

The poor staff correspondent was trying to end with a flourish and made a hash of it. New Age needs a better proof reader for the Sports section.

So what was the new salary? Is it $180K per some of the published reports that he was at 15/month and had nearly doubled from the 100K they were paying him before?

Default More Rumors about Whatmore

Quote:
But Whatmore, the Australian who transformed Sri Lanka, could soon have another nation on his multi-ethnic CV. He is in talks with India, who have just parted company with John Wright, and the extension he signed with Bangladesh yesterday has an opt-out clause he might well be invoking in mid-summer.

uh oh - opt out clause eh? The more I read about this situation, the more some of the gloss comes off Whatmore. An active coach shilling to the media? Isn't that kinda like Rameez being PCB CEO and a commentator? If that is an an agent principal problem, I don't know what is.

Whatmore aims to make Tigers roar
By Anna Thompson

Dav Whatmore is not a man who likes to leave jobs half done.


Whatmore celebrates Bangladesh's win over India in Chittagong
Which is why he has agreed to a contract extension as Bangladesh coach, with his next big task their first ever tour of England.

He can see there is talent in a squad which has been struggling along since it was launched into the Test arena five years ago.

The 51-year-old told BBC Sport: "My employers were very, very keen I stay with them and they have been pretty happy with the progress of the team."

Whatmore has been Bangladesh coach since June 2003 and under his tutelage they won their first Test series, beating Zimbabwe 1-0 in January this year, and have also recorded a one-day win over India in Calcutta.

Whatmore says a new domestic four-day competition in the country and the implementation of a high performance unit have improved Bangladeshi cricket in the last couple of years.

He said: "There are continuing challenges along the way because the national team has only begun their journey.

"They are pretty much a young group of players, not necessarily in years but in experience.

"I went in with my eyes open and I feel the real improvement will take a little bit longer than perhaps I first expected.

"Having said that we are definitely on the right track and there is talent. There are a few more youngsters who definitely will play for their country in time."

We are keen to make an impression to really test and push the opposition

Dav Whatmore
More: Whatmore signs new deal

Whatmore and his squad will head to England next month for a two-Test series and the one-day NatWest Series, which incorporates world champions Australia.

It is not going to be easy for Whatmore - especially as his side have never played in English conditions in May - but he is hoping they will put up a fight.

"It's going to be extremely tough, there is no question about it," Whatmore admitted.

"But having said that we are keen to make an impression to really test and push the opposition.

"I'm not going to make predictions but we are looking forward to the tour very much.

"In Test matches, we are playing the second-ranked team in the world so that's very difficult in itself and in the home conditions is even more difficult."

We are in the process of making stars - we haven't got the stars yet

Dav Whatmore
It is going to be a steep learning curve for the side but Whatmore believes this could be a positive thing.

"What I want to see is mistakes that are made not being repeated too often and our objectives are to do well in the game and for individual players to meet their targets.

"If I go on certain comments made by people in England they feel none of the Bangladesh players can play.

"But that's a nice little carrot for our boys to motivate themselves to do well.

"We are in the process of making stars, we haven't got the stars yet. It's exciting to be a part of a group who is striving to reach that level."

Although Whatmore has signed a two-year deal, the chance of becoming India coach is still a big attraction and he is not ruling it out in the near future.

But for now he is concentrating on Bangladesh and their progression in the Test and one-day arenas.

"I'd like to translate a lot of our effort into a few more wins along the way," he said.

But against England and Australia that is going to be a tough ask indeed.
