was appointed as the batting coach of the Bangladesh
national team with many expectations. There was a rumor at one time - he is going to get the responsibility of the head coach of the national team. But eventually, Siddons will be used to develop players for the national team. So the board may soon be looking for a new batting coach.
Russell Domingo is the head coach, who excelled mainly as a batting coach. However, former head coach Siddons was again flown to Bangladesh for the responsibility of batting coach. However, the agreement with Siddons was that he could be employed in any sector of the board.
Siddons will not be with the national team for the upcoming home series against India
. This time he will work with the other departments of the national team. If deemed necessary, a new batting coach may also be brought in for the national team.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon said, “We will bring Siddons for HP and 'A' team and Bangla Tigers. Then of course we will look for a batting coach for the national team. That doesn’t mean we will bring a new coach before the India series. It is not so easy to get a coach.”
Before the India series, the national team cricketers were busy with the ODI edition of the Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL). But there were not many high-scoring matches. In response to the question of whether it is a cause of concern, the board chief added, “It cannot be said that it is not a matter of concern. If the batters don't score runs, it's a matter of concern. But I guess practice was done here. There will be a camp ahead. The camp will improve further. I think it will be fine. The rest is hard to say.”
