From the short list of possible head coaches for Bangladesh national team, two of them presented their candidature and therefore interviewed by BCB officials until Monday.
Afterwards Nazmul Hasan Papon, head of Bangladesh Cricket Board informed they have come close to the decision and now discussing the possible pay scale and date of joining of the new coach.
“We have shortened the list further after the board meeting. With one of them, almost every term is decided except the financial terms and the date when he could join with us. Perhaps we need several days more to ensure that,” Nazmul Hasan said.
BCB President further informed about two new applications that they received on Monday, “All of you have watched Richard Pybus and Phil Simmons came and gave presentations. Surprisingly we have received two more CVs today and they are also high profile coaches.”
“We could bring them in other forms if not in the position of head coach. The national team camp will start on 27th of this month before the coming series. So we have some time in hand. We will make further extensive discussions about the coach issue before taking any final decision in this regard,” he said.
