BIPIN DANI PUNE (India) - Australia's dominance of everything cricket-related appears to at last be at an end, said Bangladesh's English bowling coach Ian Pont. Speaking exclusively to this scribe, he said: "I have been a bit fed up during the last decade if I am honest. Anything green and gold or with an Australian accent has been accepted as wonderful and great in England. But that particular nugget is massively devalued. It's time now to realise our cricket in England is far better and our development coaches get better results. This following England's straightforward retaining of the Ashes in Australia." Pont, who was former ECB National Skills Set Coach for pace bowling at Loughborough where Steven Finn was a student, thinks the time has come to back other coaches and coaching methods from England. "England has now won the Ashes three times in the last five years. This with an evolving team now missing players like Flintoff, Harmison and Vaughan. It's quite clear that whatever Australia used to be revered for has been tarnished. It's time to move on." In international cricket, there are just three English coaches - Pont himself, Julien Fountain the Bangladesh fielding coach, and Graham Gooch, England's batting coach. And in the IPL, there are no English coaches. A fact Pont says proves his point. "There are simply loads of Aussie head coaches and high level support coaches in the IPL but there are no Englishmen. That's strange not least given England are Twenty20 world champions and created Twenty20 cricket in the first place." He feels the Ashes have also been devalued given it is effectively fourth and fifth in the world playing each other. "To England and Australia, the Ashes will always be sacred. But I found the India versus South Africa series much better quality and interesting to be honest. Two great team slugging it out toe-to-toe rather than a damp squib of an Ashes with middle-ranked teams trying to prove a point. Maybe the proposed Test Championship cannot come soon enough." Pont, widely-regarded as the world's leading technical fast bowling coach, still managed to keep the English-Australia hand of friendship firmly alive though. "We've got the best one," added Pont with a smile, referring to Jamie Siddons the Bangladesh head coach. "Having two Poms and an Aussie in one changing room appears to be a decent blend and the right way round. It's a balance that's producing great results for Bangladesh as well," Pont concluded.
