No to Whatmore!


Cricinfo reports that competition for the most high-profile position of Indian cricket is a two-horse race and that Mr. Whatmore is not one of them. John Ford, as recommended by senior cricketers, is one of them and the other is not to be revealed for the time-being. I am most sure that it will be Arjuna Ranatunga who happens to be high on Gavaskar’s list. Firstly, I am glad that it is not Whatmore and secondly, if it is Ranatunga, I am quite pleased that he is being considered. And I see a big irony there. Whatmore’s biggest perceived success is with the Sri Lankan team, however, I have always believed that Sri Lanka’s success had considerably more to do with Ranatunga and Whatmore more or less went with the flow. Do I think that Ranatunga will get it, if he is the second one?. I doubt it. We will keep our fingers crossed and wait “Ford” the announcement…

  1. Srikanth,

    Ranatunga has not done any coaching course and he has no coaching experience as well. Its one thing being a shrewd captain and totally another thing being an efficient coach.

    Board would be stupid if they’re considering him. But then, they’ve always been stupid…so whats new!

    But one thing is amazing. Did no one else apply apart from Ford and Whatmore?

  2. My vote for Ranatunga.He understands South asian psychology and he is one of the key guys to take Sri lankan cricket to where it is today.
