what if coach is selector too...?

shared by straight point on Wednesday, August 26, 2009

though my last post had a title beware...your captain and coach have more powers now...

but in that i mostly concentrated on what if's of captain given power of full time selector... its only when i read this article i realised the oversight... that i have not written much on... what if coach is selector too... (some tube lights flicker for longer period before attaining full capacity)

an excerpt from the article goes like...

His (moles) position also includes being a buffer between the players and selectors. If a player is out of form, down on his luck, has personal problems or simply wants to have a good old slap at the selectors, the coach is the first person he would turn to.

The ability to do that is now significantly diminished, simply because Moles is one of the four people - along with panel incumbent Glenn Turner, former test batsman Mark Greatbatch and Vettori - who will be deciding whether that player is in the next test or ODI team, or touring party.

Will a player feel as happy about baring his soul to someone who has a direct hand on his test place?

so if i were rohit sharma or suresh raina... will i confide to kirsten about my short pitch delivery problems... knowing next tour is going to happen in south africa or australia... and without knowing who is listening to me coach kirsten or the selector kirsten...?

It would mess up the things.While practice session a Cricketer(not in good form)will plead to his coach,"please let me play bad in one more match".

Next, player will be a selector too. That's when Rohit won't be able to speak to himself.

If the capt. and coach agree then its good but if it greg chappell then NIGTHMARE.

It is an arrangement which is perhaps designed solely for NZ cricket.

straight point said...

even then its highly inflammable proposition specially moles

who after losing test series said both team have won three cricket matches (including t20)... highly questionable...
