The idea of using different coaches for different formats is not very old. The first such appearance was England
, where Brendon McCullum was appointed for Tests and Matthew Mott for the two limited-overs formats. Now many teams are planning to follow that path. But Bangladesh
did a little different.
Sridharan Sriram was appointed as a technical consultant before the T20 World Cup and Asia Cup, so Domingo had no more responsibilities in this format. Expressing satisfaction with Sriram's work, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president said, for now, this coach will work only in T20 format. As usual, they’re keeping confidence in Domingo for ODIs.
Stating that there is no plan to keep the same coach in limited-overs, Papon said, “There is no such thought yet. Since the Bangladesh team have been in a fairly good position in ODIs so far, we have not thought of any changes here. If we ever feel the need, of course, we will.”
Domingo got a long break as he was not with the T20 team. He returned to Bangladesh after a holiday with the India
series ahead of him. The question arises - is Domingo spending enough time in Bangladesh, that is, in his own work?
In response to such a question, Papon added, “I know he is always there. No one has ever complained to me. When he was the coach in all three formats... look how long he had been here. He has been in Bangladesh for two weeks. He is here. He has to be here when we need him, that's what the contract says.”
"If there is a gap of 10 days between one series and another, the boys don’t want to camp. Earlier, he went home only before 5 days of a series, now it is 15 days. Besides, when will he go? But since we have separated him from the T20 format, maybe now he will get time. But the player will not get it. 80 percent of players will not get it. If they go to play T20, who will he camp with?”
