Chandika Hathurusingha – the name might be regarded as the best coach Bangladesh ever have so far. The team’s parameter of success has been rising upwards since he took over the charge in 2014. But with days gone by, it seemed Hathurusingha repeatedly failed to maintain an amiable relationship with the senior cricketers of the team.

Bangladesh shorter format captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza left playing T20I cricket all of a sudden in the last Sri Lanka tour; it was then reported, he was asked to leave the captaincy in T20 cricket by the head coach, the conflict resulted in abrupt termination of Mashrafe’s T20 career.
Test captain Mushfiqur Rahim is also in discomfort with the head coach; in a recent occasion, Mushfiqur denied to flow credit towards the coach for team’s success. He rather said Chandika Hathurusingha has received a good team in hand in a good time facilitating in his success run.
Later when Mushfiqur was asked about the causes of sending Mominul in seven down position, the Test captain said it would be better to ask team management about the reasons.
Hathurusingha, for some obscure reason, rushes after the senior members of the team. Reportedly he was against taking Mahmudullah Riyad in the Test team. Riyad was not selected for the two match Test series against Australia but later came back into the squad for South Africa under the forthright willingness of chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu.
BCB President Nazmul Hasan Papon is aware of the situation but he is not to take any thick step into the matter as the board has a contract with Chandika Hathurusingha until 2019 World Cup.
