    Yes Woolmer is a genius ,but Indian Greg is better in many departments . I think more than Woolmer this is Inzamam who is responsible for making the team do the "team work"..............

    John Buchanan's hardly got a bad record.

    Considering what he's done with his very limited player resources, I think Dav Whatmore's been pretty good.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Buchanan (much as I don't like particularly) is in a no-win situation. If Oz win it's like whoop-de-do, you've got the best players, mate; but if they lose (as rare as hens' teeth, but it has happened ) he's crucified for more or less the same thing.

    Woolmer for me, anyway. Although it will be interesting to see how big Dav gets on trying to make a silk purse from a sow's ear; he did a stirling job at SL.

    Hard to tell, but I'll say Dav Whatmore.

    Isn't the role of Coaches overrated in Cricket especially for international teams.

    Indeed is . So does Imran thinks. I think a captain's role is more significant than that of a coach . I heard Imran Khan saying this and he is absolutely right . And guess what Imran's favorite Viv Richards also thinks so . I do not have the evidence right now but I definitely remember Imran saying this and I think there was a discussion here on CW about this topic a long time ago .

    Woolmer for me. He is at the top of the tree.

    As for the role of coches being overrated, Im not sure it is.
    - They obviously have a great input in the preparation of the side
    - They allow continuity of roles and ideas as captains come and go (eg Hussain to Vaughan to whoever is Englands captain this week)
    - Its valuable to have a selector that deals with the players on a daily basis rather than just selectors the watch occasional games. They have a far greater insight into a players deficiencies and mind set.

    I think the role of coaches has become more important today. In Imran's and Viv's days, I would agree that the Captain was the key, and the coaches over-rated. Today, however, I think the roles are equal in importance. With the evolution of technology and strategy, the coach becomes more important IMO. I think this is even more true for the subcontinent, which is now placing more importance on having a proper domestic structure and then providing the players with the right coaching help once they reach the international circuit. I felt this was neglected in the past. And I may be biased, but I think Woolmer is a genius and is probably the best coach around.

    IMO, when Woolmer is interviewed, he sounds very dithery and sometimes as if he's not quite sure of what he's talking about. It makes you sit there and thinks "and this is that so-called 'genius'?"
