Steve Rhodes opens up about ‘Foul’ cricketing system in Bangladesh!
CRICDOT DESK : Former national team coach Steve Rhodes has been the technical advisor of Comilla Victorians in the recently concluded BPL. His team won the title. He did not want to open his mouth about losing his job during the tournament. This time Rhodes splashed flowers on his face.
In an interview with ESPN Cricinfo, he shared his experience of working in a cricket ground in Bangladesh.
“The cricketers here are always under pressure and they can’t trust anyone,” said Steve Rhodes. This has a negative effect on their performance. To get the best out of a cricketer, you have to reduce the pressure on him as much as possible. I and my coaching staff knew the team players very well. So I knew what was going on. ‘
Rhodes added: “If you sit in the BCB president’s box and watch the game, you will never know what’s going on there. You can just say, “Well, he didn’t do very well. Let him go now.” Sad but true, young and middle-class cricketers are under such pressure. They always think, “What’s going to happen next? Am I going to drop out?” How can you perform well with such thoughts in mind? ‘
