  1. Not a very wise observation. Most of the world’s best coaches have player no or little international cricket.even in other sports.our u19 coach avishka
    too has not played a single T20 international. Judging Grant flowers effectiveness as a coach is a different story.

  2. Grant flower has he been able to communicate with the Sri Lankan players?? , with all due respect to Sri Lankan players are they able to understand whats hes trying to communicate, or he havent done anything much on the players. Players not bothered to listen to him or is he just in the team just because Sri Lankan cricket board like the fact that they have a foreign batting coach .

    Yes, there is a lot of batting coach available in the country to do this job and be able to communicate to younger cricketers who will benefit from the local batting coach .

    I really dont think that if he hasnt played a t20 game thats the reason our players arent able to bat well. If its a test match or a t20 game batting is batting apart from tactics how you would approach a game . A coach can only coach you the certain things and then its the player who adapts the game according to strengths and game plan.

  3. Continued ..
    Interestingly the t20 format has changed , PAR score has becomes 150 above, but we dont have the fire power or a finisher who could do that job at the end . Batting in the middle over , rotating the strike from 7-15 over has been very poor with very many dot balls which you cannot do that in a short format, whats been sad is our cricketers in our own backyard cant play spin very well or have played spinners very well in-general.
    Which again will come in to question is it the domestic cricket quality of the spinners is it down fault that current players not able to playe spin well, considering the past crickets were good players of spin bowling .

    So much fitness test is carried out these days but are these boys have strength to hit the sixes considering, the Sanath , De Silva , Arjuna , Mahela, Sangakkara they hit those sixes at will when the spinners were operating . It is sad to see how the current generation is failing as if we havent got a clue to play spin.
