‘Bangladesh need pace academy to solve fast bowling issue’
The most experienced bowling coach of Bangladesh, Sarwar Imran has come up with a suggestion for the betterment of Bangladesh cricket which he believes would help the team solving the fast-bowling issue.
It’s a bitter truth that Bangladesh could not produce many world-class pacers in their cricket history. Apart from 2 or 3, none of the pacers who represented Bangladesh in international cricket was good enough to ball against the world class batsmen.
In the recently concluded Test series against Windies, Bangladesh had to suffer a lot as the performance of the fast bowlers were very disappointing. For that reason, the Shakib Al Hasan led side could not give any fight against the host side and lost both the matches miserably.
Meanwhile, Sarwar Imran suggests building a pace academy and according to him, that might help. “We should have a pace academy where there will be at least 15-16 pacers,” Sarwar Imran was quoted as saying by Cricfrenzy.
He added on the same, “Those dropped from the national team and age-group teams will be training [there] alongside the Under-19 team, ‘A’ team, and the academy team pacers all year round. Pacers from there can also join the national team if needed.”
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) earlier, arranged a few sudden camps for the pacers. However, Sarwar Imran thinks the board need to do that with a proper system otherwise it won’t help in the long run. “There should be a system. Organizing sudden two-week [training] camps with a few bowlers won’t help,” he concluded.
