Out of the seven coaches of this year’s BPL, five franchises appointed coaches from inside the country meanwhile the rest two teams went for foreign coaches.
The two foreign coaches are Tom Moody who was recruited by Rangpur Riders, one of the most balanced teams this season and the other is Mahela Jayawardene to guide Khulna Titans.
Among others, Khaled Mahmud Shujon is retained by Dhaka Dynamites, Mohammad Salahuddin in Comilla Victorians, Nurul Abedin in Chittagong Vikings, Zafrul Ehsan in Sylhet Sixers and Sarwar Imran for Sylhet Sixers.
In terms of coaching experience and statistics, Tom Moody is the most high profile coach of this season’s BPL.
On the other hand, Mahela Jayawardene is yet to outshine his cricketing experience as a coach.
Dhaka Dynamites will be looking to retain their title under the coaching of Khaled Mahmud Shujon like the previous season.
