Bangladesh Cricket Board will take necessary legal action if national assistant coach Ruwan Kalpage fails to respond to the board's query of joining the office.
BCB's media and communication chairman Jalal Younus informed this to Dhaka Tribune on Saturday.
Following the terrorist attacks in Dhaka and Sholakia in July this year, the foreign staff of the Bangladesh cricket team expressed concerns with the security. BCB president Nazmul Hasan had said the board understands their worries and arranged the required security to satisfy the foreigners.
Satisfied with the security arrangement, national fielding coach Richard Halsall and trainer Mario Villavarayan reached Dhaka on Saturday.
Head coach Chandika Hathurusingha is set to arrive by Sunday or Saturday while BCB's High Performance unit coach Simon Helmot is expected to reach Dhaka on Tuesday.
However, Kalpage showed dissatisfaction with BCB’s arrangement and apparently taking advantage of the situation has demanded a hike in his payment. Kalpage, who joined the Tigers as the assistant and spin coach on August 2014, has demanded a change in his contract with the BCB.
“We are discussing with the CEO (Nizamuddin Chowdhury) as to what can be done. He (Kalpage) has a contract with the board and we will look into it. We might set a time for him to reach Dhaka. If he does not respond, we will take action accordingly,” said Younus.
It is understood that BCB's legal team is looking into the papers to counter the former Sri Lanka cricketer's claims.
