Sangakkara
rues India
hiring a
foreign coach
            IANS
          NEW DELHI


FORMER Sri Lankan cap-
tain Kumar Sangakkara on
Sunday said it is a ‘shame’
that no Indian was found
competent to coach the
World champions.
  Sangakkara was sur-
prised that despite so many
exceptional Indian crick-
eters around, the Board of
Control for Cricket in India
(BCCI) found no one com-
petent for the job.

  Having produced
  some many good
  cricketers in the
  region...it is a
  shame that no suit-
  able candidate
  was found compe-
  tent to take over
  the national side

  “Having produced some
many good cricketers in
the region...it is a shame
that no suitable candidate
was found competent to
take over the national
side,” he said.
  Sangakkara said it is
important for the boards to
make the full use of the
home grown coaches.
  “It is important that
home grown coaching abil-
ity and talent is exploited
to the fullest like home
grown playing talent and
ability. In Sri Lanka we lost
a great opportunity in
Chandika Hathurusingha,
who was capable enough to
take over the national side.
Unfortunately, we lost him
to Australia,” Sangakkara
said.
  Hathurusingha, a one-
time shadow coach of the
Sri Lanka team, was sus-
pended by Sri Lanka
Cricket (SLC) on discipli-
nary grounds in June
before he decided to
migrate      to    Australia.
During his three-year
tenure,      Hathurusingha
played a crucial role in the
shaping the players’ men-
tal make-up which made
them successful at interna-
tional level.
  Sangakkara        admitted
getting a good coach is a
tough task for all the
boards.
  “Finding a No. 1 coach is
the most difficult hurdle
that any board would face.
Those are difficult choices
and from a Sri Lankan per-
spective every body would
like to have a Sri Lankan as
the coach of the national
team,” he said.
  “From this part of the
world having a local coach
means the person comes in
with a lot of baggage with
past experiences that
might colour his views on
coaching and players in the
particular side that he
takes over. So sometimes
having a foreign coach is
convenient from these
points of view.”
