    Apply to be the national coach of Pakistan!

    Job posting here.

    I know I am late, but we are usually forgiving about such things in the subcontinent. So I just attached my resume, and sent it with this note:

    "Mr. Zahir Khan,

    I am responding to the opening posted on your web site for the position of the National Coach. I am very flexible in terms of my conditions for employment, and would very much like to lead Pakistan out of its troubled state. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Respectfully,
    Manan Shah"


    So, what are my chances?

    You can't be any worse than a dead guy, I suppose.

    The successful application will be required to demonstrate:
    Strong interpersonal skills to develop and sustain cohesive team structures


    I don't think you'll work out as you're likely to shoot anyone who refuses to become a fast bowler (even the batsmen).

    Right, lets have a look...

    The successful application will be required to demonstrate:

    • Experience in leading, motivating, mentoring, educating and influencing within a team environment.
    Check. Teaching 11 year olds clearly fits that bill.

    • Exceptional communication and man-management skills
    Check. No death threats in five years of moderating CW.

    • Strong interpersonal skills to develop and sustain cohesive team structures
    Check. Not only am I teaching but I'm running three colts teams, assisting with four others, running an adult team and playing for three other adult sides this summer.

    • A strong understanding of modern sports coaching techniques
    Check. I can spell biomechanics and kinaesthetic.

    • A commitment to success
    Check. Unbeaten as a representative coach with East Devon.

    • Must have played professional cricket (at least 1st class)
    Ah, dammit. Do you think the D Division East of the Devon Cricket League counts. I suppose I have played on the same side as three first-class players...

    • Should preferably be an ECB Level III Qualified Coach or equivalent from another country.
    Almost. ECB Level II + multiple development workshops.

    • Must possess good computer knowledge.
    Check. I think writing multiple pieces of software counts.

    I'm actually surprisingly close to being a "suitable" candidate for this job. Perversely, I'm far more qualified for this than for the last one I applied for, for which I met 0/4 of the first person specifications. I got that one...

    They don't know that.

    Plus, that eventually would never come about..I mean, who doesn't want to be a fast bowler?
