The BCB high-ups Wednesday completed their search through a last batch of teleconferences with the shortlisted candidates and are now working to reach a decision
The Bangladesh Cricket Board is set to announce the name of the new men’s national team head coach in a day or two.
The BCB high-ups Wednesday completed their search through a last batch of teleconferences with the shortlisted candidates and are now working to reach a decision.
The post for the Bangladesh head coach was vacant following the board’s decision to part ways with Steve Rhodes after a below-par result in the World Cup 2019 in July.
“[Wednesday] we spoke with a few candidates over the phone. We [BCB] are confident that we will be able to announce the name of the new head coach within the next one or two days,” said BCB media committee chairman Jalal Younus to the media Wednesday.

Ex-New Zealand head coach Mike Hesson has been among the frontrunners for the Bangladesh job.
But the BCB was looking into other available options given Hesson is among the shortlisted candidates for the Indian head coach’s post as well.
BCB director Jalal did not make a comment on Hesson but did say they are considering a strong vision and passion in the “new coach” along with the financial aspect.
Former South African coach Russell Domingo already gave an interview to the BCB earlier this month where the board officials were satisfied over his plan and vision during the presentation.
