Lalchand Rajput

Post by Marshmallow »

The Cricket Association of Nepal is preparing to appoint India’s Lalchand Rajput as the head coach of Nepal’s national cricket team.

The former left-hand batsman is currently the head coach of Zimbabwe national team. Before this role, he was the head coach of another test nation, Afghanistan. Under his coaching, the Afghans had achieved the full membership of the International Cricket Confederation.

In respect to his past credentials, Rajput is likely to demand high pay from Nepal. However, salary negotiations are still underway, according to the CAN President Chatur Bahadur Chand. However, Rajput has already agreed to come to Nepal, though orally, the official adds.

Chand says the CAN has also expected some support from Board of Control for Cricket in India.

The CAN is looking for a foreign coach since the resignation of Umesh Patwal in February. Since then, Jagat Tamata of Nepal has been taking over as an interim coach.

I’m not sad to see him go, he never really seemed like a good fit and the side has gone backwards under his guidance

The only highlights were the Test win v Bangladesh of course & finally beating Afghanistan in a T20.

Hopefully with the debt now pretty much gone ZC can hire a good coach with a strong support staff, not just who ever is willing to work for bread crumbs.

If this board is serious, they will finally appoint some proper coaching staff, however the skeptic in me sees this being Hammy calling someone from his speed dial friends list, especially if the tour of Aus is to go ahead.

I’m saying Hondo or Matsi will we appointed head coach. Absolutely no chance they’ll select Gary Brent, even though he’s the screamingly obvious choice.

Also, it’s nice to see young Ryan Murray back training with the national squad. Hopefully he can get the gloves now

Surely Brent is the obvious choice. Maybe they will go with Matsikenyeri but Hondo is an absolute no for me. With corona and cost cutting in their minds it will have to be a local solution

Coaching Zimbabwe is a poisoned chalice. None of them are going to make much difference, and will always be under political pressure.

That said, if you did want to coach Zimbabwe now is your best time. Ervine and Williams at their peak. Still have BT, Raza and Jarvis doing their thing and Wes has made his debut, and the debt is supposedly miraculously gone.

Andy Flower is ideal. Followed by his brother and Brent Or a Streak return.

Beyond that I'd be looking at a coach who can try to deliver a psychological winning mindset.

Yeah it'll be Matsi, Hondo, Sibanda or some random no ones heard of that coached a club once he was involved with.
