Mahmud: Tigers can continue with Walsh as head coach
Following their impressive campaign at the Nidahas T20I tri-nation series, Bangladesh now await a two-month gap before their next international assignment, away to India for a limited-overs series against Afghanistan in June. The Tigers, who played the Nidahas series under interim coach Courtney Walsh, were supposed to get a new head coach in the first week of April as BCB president Nazmul Hasan earlier this month said they would finalise the appointment within that time. However, even if a new Tigers head coach is not named early next month, Bangladesh team manager Khaled Mahmud believes Walsh is a good alternative for the time being.

"We can continue with him. According to me, he can continue. Courtney is a fine human being, and honest. He supported and motivated the players quite well in the Nidahas series. His experience in the game is around 40 years, he has been involved with cricket for a long time. There is no doubt with his experience. He is a fatherly figure. The entire team like him. All in all, he was fantastic in the last series," said Mahmud. When queried if any international matches could have been arranged during April or May this year, Mahmud added, "To be honest, I really think we needed a break. If you see, after the Afghanistan series we will go to the West Indies, then the Asia Cup, Australia. There is no gap in between. Then BPL (Bangladesh Premier League), West Indies, and Zimbabwe will come. A few players might get inured or be out of form.We have to keep many players in standby. We have to prepare two national teams. Because injury might be a factor."
