  1. So we keep treating our coaches like villages and keep running to new coaches and keep wondering what the issue with the coach is?

    Can’t blame the national coach if the first class system cannot produce a spinner who can compete at international level or we keep making meaningless selections. If not already there, SLC will soon become the worst employer at international cricket where coaches will beef up the contract to protect themselves or we keep getting below par coaches and keep blaming them for the deficiencies of the first class structure – ironically the responsibility of SLC.
