Whatmore & Hathurasingha is among the best when it comes to lifting a weak side, as their coaching careers reveals such numbers.

Grant Flower for me . We are going to go through a phase of a lot of trial and error with lots of kids coming through the system straight into the senior squad. You need somebody who is a local legend (to pacify Sean Williams and co) but also has a background as a batting or bowling coach because these kids will need a lot of coaching.

Probably by this time next year you will have Bawa and a couple of other guys coming in and needing to be shown the ropes. It's going to be a cycle for the next 5 years. You actually need an actual coach instead of a manager type of coach

If we CAN get Grant, it would help our spinners too, in addition to young batsmen getting tips.

Also, for him, it is a nice upgrade to become the head coach of a full member country, instead of being an assistant and a batting coach under someone else.

Have we really seen Pakistanis as international coaches outside Pakistan?

Why wouldn’t he?
I’ve noticed you think a lot of coaches are unattainable.
Yet we have had the ex Australian, Sri Lankan, Indian and Streak coaching us. The ex Indian being current one.
Compared to that what’s Houghton? Dude In his sixties with no gig atm…. That’s even taking into consideration he’s from Zim.
Don’t think he’s the best option though.
Would be good if he can bring Ballance with him.
