BCB yet to solve ‘head coach puzzle’


Time flies by – it is hard to believe Bangladesh national team lost six valuable months without being under the care taking of a head coach since Chandika Hathurusingha lifted off his duty.

One more time, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has to explain reasons behind the not availability of a coach for such a long period of time.

Jalal Yunus, BCB Media Committee Chairman said, “It is taking time. The increasing number of franchise based cricket leagues around the world make it harder to find coaches because most number of coaches, now a days, tend to incline to that. Franchise leagues offer more money in less period of time leading coaches to ignore long term engagements.”

BCB President said the appointment could be made within next few months,” he said.

However, Jalal Yunus also said BCB has four to five persons who are eager to take Bangladesh’s responsibility. Then what keeps the board waiting for so long?

BCB Media Committee chairman said, “The trouble lies in the matter that none of them are up to the standard as per our requirements. The enlisted persons are interested to be Bangladesh’s coach. But we wishes to have someone more eligible. The selected coach should take the responsibility for a long time, at least for two years.”

At the end, Jalal Yunus precipitously undo the probability of upgrading Courtney Andrew Walsh in the position of the head coach.

“Walsh is a legend, an icon but we are preferring a batting or all-rounder coach rather than a bowling specialist,” media committee chairman said.
