While talking to the media, BCB technical director Khaled Mahmud Shujon appreciated Walsh highly both as a human being and a coach.
He said, “I think Courtney Walsh can be our head coach because he is an incredible human being and very honest person. And his experience is beyond questionable. He has been with cricket for forty years.”
Shujon further mentioned Walsh as a ‘fatherly figure’ for the team; “Walsh is a very experienced cricketer. He is just like a fatherly figure. Everyone in the team like and respect him. And he was quite incredible as a coach in the Sri Lanka tour (for Nidahas Trophy).”
