Hasan asks to lift coaching standard
Sep 17, 2017-
The chief cricket coach of Bangladesh Institute of Sports (BKSP) – Bangladesh’s biggest sports institute backed by the government – said Nepal needs to adopt research-based coaching methods to lift their standards in the game.Hasan, under whom current Bangladeshi cricket stars Shakib-Al-Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim had trained, recently completed a 12-day coaching camp to 50 aspiring young cricketers in a programme organised by Great Himalaya Cricket Academy. “Its not about blaming the system or any individual, but there were many loopholes in the learning process for the young cricketers in Nepal,” said Hasan.
“Back in Bangladesh, we have adopted a research-based system which provides customised coaching to cricketers according to their physicality and growth progress. During the 12-day stay in Nepal, we managed to rectify those loopholes but it’s a lengthy process that requires a lot of concentration and time,” Hasan said adding Nepal can take a lot of gains from BKSP.
“Since the current programme was organised by a private academy, we our confined. If the governing body of cricket in Nepal ties up with BKSP, it will certainly help the country in giving proper shape to its cricketing talent,” he added.
Hasan was invited by GHCA President Sudeep Sharma, who wanted such programme to come from a higher level.
“Bringing in Hasan from BKSP is just a start for us because it has benefited a limited number of young cricketers. If we can go through National Sports Council or Cricket Association of Nepal and send our players or coaches there, it will be a great initiation in the development of the game,” said Sharma who has been taking his Academy team to foreign tours for bilateral series.
