BCB to make changes in women’s team coaching staff
The hope was that the Bangladesh women’s cricket team would win at least one match. With that goal in mind, Salma Khatun-led team went to play in the Women’s T20 World Cup in February-March this year. But hopes have not been fulfilled, frustration has been companion.
Expectations have not been met, many questions have been raised. Coach Anju Jain did not use the best star of the team Rumana Ahmed properly. Although she usually plays in the top order, she has been relegated to number 7-8 position in the World Cup.
The women’s cricket wing of the BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board) was supposed to sit down to evaluate this disappointing performance in the World Cup. But it was not possible due to coronavirus. However, if the situation is normal, the matter will be reviewed soon.
Shafiul Alam Chowdhury, chairman of the BCB’s women’s cricket wing, told Cricbuzz,
“If everything goes well, we will look into the cause of the disappointing T20 World Cup. We wanted to know more about the cause of this catastrophe, but it didn’t happen because of the coronavirus.”
Whatever the outcome of the talks, the possibility of a change of coach is huge, according to a report by the cricket-based website. Because BCB’s contract with Anju Jain was for T20 World Cup. After that, the term of the agreement could be extended on the basis of agreement between the two parties.
But considering the current situation, there is no possibility to extend the contract. The BCB is dissatisfied with Anju Jain’s authoritarian behavior, starting with the suicidal decision to play the team’s best star Rumana Ahmed down in the batting order on a stage like the World Cup. So the whole coaching staff including the head coach can change.
