BCB to not renew contract of the selection panel
Along with some changes in the coaching staff, there will be a massive change in the selection panel as well as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) are not interested to renew the contract. This means that Minhajul Abedin Nannu and Habibul Bashar will not be in the selection panel anymore.
The duo was contracted till June, 2019 and according to BCB sources, they are unlikely to renew the contract. The board will stick to their decision unless something drastically happens before the next BCB directors meeting, scheduled on July 27.
Minhajul didn’t travel to Sri Lanka for this reason. However, he is still hopeful that BCB will extend the contract and believes the team has performed well under their selection.
“Actually we had to prepare our National team, BCB XI and A team. We had to divide A team in two parts because one of our team had to go to Bangalore to play four-day matches. We thought that the players who play better in the longer format are sent to Bangalore because that tournament is a very strong tournament.”
“I have been in the panel for three years. I think I have done quite well. I have worked with the HP team, they are quite good and also worked with the A team. They play lots of matches. National team has also played good enough. If you look at the last year’s performance we have won 52% of the matches. It’s a big achievement. We have improved our ranking. We have done well in the longer version too. If I am given another opportunity of course I will do something better,” he added.
