    Default No qualms in coaching Bangladesh: Saqlain

    Pakistan's ex-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq says he faces no emotional dilemma in coaching Bangladesh.


    "Lot of professional coaches went through this phase when they have to coach their chosen team against their national teams. But it is part and parcel of the profession and one has to accept it," said Saqlain, who is working with the Bangladesh team as a bowling consultant.

    The former spinner said he was doing his best to prepare the Bangladesh batsmen for the coming game in which they would face the lethal Saeed Ajmal -- currently ranked the top spinner in the world.

    Saqlain said he had passed on tips about off-spin bowling to Saeed sometime back.

    "He is someone Pakistan should be proud of. He is now using the Doosra ball very intelligently and taking wickets with it," Saqlain said.

    He also pointed out that Saeed s current position in the ICC rankings reflects highly on his performance.

    "It is great to see a spin bowler dominate international cricket. The good thing is that spinners have important roles to play in all formats of the game," he added.

    Saqlain himself had expressed interest in working with the Pakistan team as bowling coach but the job eventually went to former pacer Mohammad Akram

    Saqlian, while you are at it, tell the Bangalies to quit being cry babies. They should be used to the concept of 'losing' by now.
