DHAKA, (Reuters) – Stuart Law needs to form a stable relationship with the senior figures in Bangladesh cricket in order to push the team up the world rankings, the new coach said yesterday.
“If I can have a great relationship with the selectors, the captain and the board then I am sure we can have consistent things happening,” the Australian told reporters.
“It’s been proven the most stable relationship at the top generally provides the best environment for the players to play better cricket.”
Former batsman Law, who has signed a two-year deal to replace fellow countryman Jamie Siddons, said he was relishing the task of hauling Bangladesh off ninth and last place in the world test rankings. “I think when you have a new coach or a change of management it is always a challenge,” he said. “The challenge is to put names into faces for the first couple of weeks. “Once we get into that the next challenge for us is to make Bangladesh the team they think they should be. It’s not about what I think they should be but what they expect from themselves.
