You ought to keep your jingoism on the Indian forums.

Yes, the Indian tours are lucrative. BCB is able to generate about 4 million dollars worth of revenue from an Indian tour.

However, if you chose not to be blinded by your jingoism, you would know that the bulk of BCB's (or any cricket board's) income comes from TV rights and sponsorship deals.

In BCB's case its the Nimbus and Grameen Phone deals that pay for the bulk of BCB's operational expenditure.

From Boss's mentioned article:

The point here is that Wessels is great at talent spotting. Citing his own case and the Afrikaans-speaking players rise, he would tell you it is the generation factor to find genuine talent emerging from a marginalised system.

Eddie Barlow suggested the same about Bangladesh. Sure there would be world-class players, but it takes a generation.

As someone already mentioned in this forum, equally beneficial dividend will pay off - if we settle on a 'non-star' coach- would be the fact if BCB can arrange a series of intensive workshops round the year. Imagine what Shakib can purchase off Mushtaq or a Shafiul/Rubel/Motutaza from the likes of Akram/Donald or if Anwar held a batting 'seminar'/'conference' / 'colloquium'. I am serious. Once you actually learn the trade and tricks it's matter of putting them to practice bearing the old adage of 'perfect practice' in mind. But the thing is ... to my knowledge... I never heard of any cricketer willing to hold private - 2 day, 3 day or short- workshops. It will be mutually beneficial to both parties. Say if Akram charged 5 grand for a 10 hour workshop, he goes home winner with 5 grand more dough while our players return home enriched with tweaked actions. (And Akram didn't even have to worry about yo pay for travel!)
As if I care for approval...
