Thumbs up Saqlain set to be Tigers’ spin bowling coach

Quote:
Former Pakistani off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq is all set to join the Bangladesh national cricket team as their spin bowling coach for the next three months, said the officials of Bangladesh Cricket Board on Sunday.
‘We are negotiating with him and hope to get him in the Ireland series. We would like to keep him until the ICC World Twenty20 in September,’ Enayet Hossain Seraj, BCB’s cricket operation chairman, told New Age.
It is however not clear if Saqlain will come to Bangladesh to sign the agreement or will join the team in Ireland.
‘This is still in a negotiation stage. Hopefully we will get a positive feedback from him in a day or two,’ added Seraj.
Saqlain, famous for his pioneering role of doosra delivery, had 208 Test wickets and 288 one-day international wickets to his name.
His former bowling partner Mushtaq Ahmed also once acted as Bangladesh’s spin coach for a very short period.

Please don't judge a coach based on his nationality. You have to look at his credentials.

I don't know if Saqlain have any prior coaching experience. And not sure what he can offer in just 3 months. Not too excited about Saqlain but want to hope for the best...

It is a good news, he was one of the successful bowlers when he served his country even in county he did better. So we can hope for the best from him.

Why does it matter that he is a Pakistani coach? -.-


Hope he works out.

Not to be too pressing but what you said was " i dont think its a good idea having any kind of Pakistani coaches "
I just don't think bigotry should be tolerated.

I agree with you. Historically also, pak ex players haven't ever been able to deliver as a coach. Even in their own country...

If it had to be from Pak, I would have preferred WA for the pacers... That dept needed a boost... And Murali/Warne could have been a better option for the spinners...if at all a spin coach was at all needed before the T20 WC...it's not the time to tweak your strongest dept...Before a major tournament ...

You never know, May be Saqlain is being appointed by PCB to pass on our weaknesses and strengths to Pak team, to not to have any problem in the group stage should they lose to NZ....

Some have very bad memories of Mohsin Kamal. Losing to Canada after getting the test status heck not winning anything in 2003 WC....

I for one, he will be under another coach (head coach). So do not think it is a bad idea. Plus few sessions with the academy team, few spin hunts can be a boost. Plus this is not a permanent deal.

.
so you think waker or mohosin (their last coach) was not successful? I think waker is taking up australian job (btw he played at the same time as saqlain and no issue with him or saqlain was ever hard). so if australia had no issue why should we? now if u r saying this because 71 or u r dislike of pakistan (not you BANFAN bhai). then that's different.

Not that his origin matters, but I would think Saqlain the coach would be a product of the English system. He is, after all, an English citizen now, just as Mushtaq Ahmed - who isn't a bad coach - is as well.

Sarcastic remarks should have a limit. We are talking about a guy who was among one of the best when he played for his country. We are quick to jump the gun when our neighbors take shots at us, and now that we have just 1 shakib we are acting as if we are at the top of the world.

I don't think the Aussies are mighty anymore (unless you are referring to the Wizard)... so far they are proving to be "dudh vaat" for England

If Saqlain teaches the Doosra then i will be happy but will he?

yeah hopefully he will teach it. i can understand him not letting others in on his secret during his playing days but he's not playing anymore so why not show others how to bowl it?

yes he was an offspinner, we still have some offies like riyad and nasir, and mahmudul hasan though he's not in the national squad. but shakib etc are finger spinners like offspinners just the left handed version so i'm sure saqlain could still help, give a little insight.
