On Thursday, the news of Hathurusingha’s resignation spread in cricket arena following a briefing by BCB President Nazmul Hasan Papon informing about the Sri Lanka borne cricket coach submitting his will to terminate the responsibility of Bangladesh.
Nazmul Hasan also said Hathurusingha did not make any contact after the series against South Africa was over which is quite unprofessional on behalf of him.
“He is a professional coach. We will deal it professionally. We won’t force him but will ask him about the reason,” he said.
On the other hand, Sri Lankan newspaper Ceylon today reported subsequently that Hathurusingha is in the vicinity of signing contract as the national coach of Sri Lanka.
Hathurusingha is still under contract with Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) until 2019 World Cup. He took over the charge from Shane Jurgensen in 2014 and guided Bangladesh to major successes in international cricket both in Tests and ODIs.
Bangladesh will play a bilateral series against Sri Lanka in the later part of the next month.
