I received this anonymous comment on 19th December and could not find a way to edit it before posting it. This comment is in response to another comment under the article dated 3rd December titled "Cricket round up- Is MCA having symptom of terminal illness". Again the fact that the Women's Under 19 team had performed well meant that i had a greater duty to highlight the comment.
I have edited the comment and removed name references. Below is the text of the edited comment:
"Kindly stop criticizing the coach of the National Women's Under-19 team. He has done a fantastic job and is not even asking a sen from MCA. No body wanted the job, even the coaches who were appointed by so-called Development Chairman and his committee and the Exco itself, and he has taken his own leave to coach the girls.. Did you know that!!!
There are actually qualified coaches who have in the past applied to coach and were not even considered at all. So who is to be blamed!!!
He has just taken the Malaysian girls to the Semifinals in ACC Women's Under-19 in Chiangmai. If you are reading the newspapers you will know. ( LATEST INFO:They in fact made it to the final and lost to Nepal)
For your info, under this coach, the girls beat Kuwait by 82 runs, beat Bhutan by 45 runs, beat China by 10 wickets but lost to Nepal narrowly... Their performance is far better than the men's team led by the son of the lovable honorary secretary.
Give the coach and girls a break!! I can only gather that you have a bone to pick with the coach and you are using this blog to release your frustration.
SHAME ON YOU!!! Come on Ghandi, you can do better than this and not simply listen to bad bones.
I am so sad that no one commented that another coach, who has no certificate, and yet picked by MCA to coach the National Under-17 team. He was taken to West Indies without even one day of coaching the boys and he did not even know the names of the players!!."
Firstly, let me congratulate the coach. A job well done, more so as he has done the job out of passion for the game. Equally i admire him for doing it without being paid. It is difficult to find such sort of people these days.
My best wishes for the coach future endeavours.
