Langeveldt’s top-priority is to find bunch of new pacers

He terms his new journey with Tigers as challenging one
SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka

Newly-appointed Bangladesh fast-bowling coach Charl Langeveldt termed his new journey with the Tigers as challenging one, stating that he is ready to take that challenge here in Bangladesh.

Langeveldt also said that his top-priority is to find a bunch of new fast-bowlers who can bowl outside of Bangladesh and can bowl with the new ball.

“That’s a challenge when I coached Afghanistan as well that’s a challenge there. If you can rectify that and if you can struck with the new ball I think you can be lucky for the spinners and you will compete a lot more in terms of Test cricket,” said Charl Langeveldt who bewildered batsmen with deadly swing bowling.

“It can be small thing and technical matter, I think. You will understand if you look at Fizz. He is the type of guy who can swing the ball into the left-hander. So that’s a technical thing and as well as tactical. New ball is important for one-day cricket and even in Test cricket. The challenge for me is to find seamers who can bowl outside Bangladesh. They can bowl at a good distance in South Africa and Australia,” Langeveldt told media during his first press conference in Mirpur yesterday.

“If you look at India now they have got three seamers and they can win games in South Africa and Australia. We have to find seamers somehow so when we go to those conditions abroad we can compete,” he added.

Citing his coaching method is different than others, the South Africa-born coach said that he will assist the bowlers how to bowl aggressively in line and length if they can’t swing the ball.

“It’s difficult if the guys are not tall enough. With guys like Taskin who is quite tall if he could play not being injured and I think maybe he is someone who can get some extra bounce,” he said.

Swing bowling, it was my forte and I can assist the guys in that term on how to swing the ball. If the ball is not swinging he needs to be consistent. For me, (it’s) consistent aggressively in line and length,” he also said.

“Walsh was a great bowler but I’ve got different philosophy. My coaching method is different it has got more with skill work,” he added.

Before coming to Bangladesh, Langeveldt worked with Afghanistan cricket team as their fast-bowling coach for some years despite having the difference of their language. From that point of view, the quadragenarian coach said that he believes he can help them overcome the language barrier.

When asked about delivery of yorker and bouncer perfectly, the former right-arm medium fast-bowler said that a lot of practice and training is needed for doing these things in games.

“It’s one of the things I’ve always believed in it. But world cricket have changed so much because if you miss a Yorker, it can go for a six. But I still believe as a bowling coach that’s a go-to ball to go. If you can land a yorker under pressure it’s still a ball to have,” he responded.

“It's one of those things you have to train. After work you have to practice. You have to ball extra 20 balls to work on your yorker. I always say that you develop one kind of specific yorker and than you’ve got different skills I always say that if you’ve change of pace you got to back that with good yorker or bouncer,” he added.
