Bhutan has been one of his ever loving places and he has always enjoyed working in Bhutan. He was assigned Bhutanese national coach in the year 2003- 2006 and after he left Bhutan Cricket has never assigned any foreign coaches till date. Mr. Baba has been one of the pillars of BCCB in development of cricket in Bhutan. His students and the cricket members have a great respect for what he has done so far. “We really want to have him again and again because of his work the way he does but due to financial problem that we are facing at present, we can’t have him” said Jigme N Norbu, CEO.

He also added that Mr. Baba has always been a dedicated person and has always been helpful. He has already started his session with coaches and even worked with U19 Girls. “I am very much impressed with coaches and the players for being so dedicated to the game and taking the game serious, I can see the talent and I am very much pleased to work with you all” said Mr. Baba.
On 22nd April 2010 he had a session with eight coaches in Changlimithang national stadium. The session was basically to demonstrate more advance drills to coaches and also to assess their coaching style. “I love the way he creates his own drills and use that within players; it really helped players to develop their skills” said DS Gurung, Coaching Coordinator.
