European coach to take charge of Bangladesh women’s team
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has not renewed the contract with Bangladesh national women’s cricket team head coach Anju Jain for allegedly failing in the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup and showing dominance within the team.
Shafiul Alam Chowdhury Nadel, chairman of the BCB’s women’s wing, told the media on Saturday (June 8). The BCB, however, did not show any interest in Anju. This Indian women coach understood the matter and found her new address. However, she did not feel the need to inform anyone in the BCB that she would no longer be in charge.
Regarding the appointment of a new coach, Nadel said,
“We have already decided that we will not renew the contract with Anju. But we started looking for a new coach after the Australia World Cup. Everything is currently closed due to the coronavirus. Of these, four to five have shown interest in becoming coaches. We will appoint one of them. But we can’t say right now who will be appointed. However, we can only say that a European coach will be appointed for the women’s team.”
The BCB director was attacked by coronavirus in the last week of last month. So he has given the responsibility of overseeing the whole matter of coach appointment to BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury. The chairman of the women’s wing said: “They informed me that many had applied. We will take the one with whom our words and conditions match.”
Asked when the new coach would be appointed, Nadel said, “Everything is taking a while because of the coronavirus. Even then we are working. Maybe in the next 15 days we can appoint a coach.”
