Popular coach Chandika Hathurusingha made a great contribution to Bangladesh
cricket. The team changed overnight with his hand. Although the strict attitude created a distance with the cricketers, at one point he himself left the job. He ended the Bangladesh chapter in 2017. Now, again the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is looking for an aggressive coach like him for the Tigers.
However, the board also has confidence in the current coaching panel. Cricket Operations Committee Chairman Jalal Yunus has no objection to accepting that the team's performance is not as per expectations as Russell Domingo is not aggressive.
“The support staff is very dedicated. But everyone is different. Some are a little aggressive, some are not. Hathuru's coaching style was aggressive, which is what we need. Our head coach or support staff, they are very knowledgeable, but not as aggressive as we would like. Being aggressive can motivate players that way. You must have an aggressive attitude in the field. He is not so aggressive in that respect. That may be making the difference.”
After the tour of Zimbabwe, the foreign coaches will return to their respective countries. It was said that they will join the team when they go to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to play the Asia Cup. However, BCB has summoned them before the Asia Cup. To get an idea of the coach’s plans to overcome the team's woes.
“There is a need for a coach who will transform. A coach who will prepare a cricketer who plays slow cricket. We want such a coach. That is why they come here. They were supposed to go straight to Dubai. But they will come to discuss these things. Another coach can't be brought in suddenly. We need to know his plan,” Jalal Yunus added.
Not only the Asia Cup, but Domingo will also have to prepare plans and strategies for the upcoming England
series in this meeting with the board. Jalal Yunus further said, “We still have a lot of games after the Asia Cup. Let the support staff come. We will ask them for a detailed plan. Let's plan till England series. They are scheduled to reach the country on the 19th. Then we will sit with them on the 20th.”
