Bangladesh Cricket Board director and former national team captain Khaled Mahmud is very ‘close’ to become temporary coach of Bangladesh cricket team’s forthcoming Sri Lanka tour according to Akram Khan, the chairman of BCB’s cricket operations committee, reports Cricinfo. 

BCB has recently cut the knot with Englishman Steve Rhodes, who was Bangladesh’s head coach for last one year, as the team showcased miserable performance in the just concluded World Cup. 

"Khaled Mahmud is close to becoming the senior team's temporary coach. The board will confirm the decision in a couple of days," Akram was quoted as saying. 

Mahmud also acted as the temporary coach of the Tigers after Chandika Hathurusingha resigned in October 2017. 

Bangladesh team is set to leave for Sri Lanka for playing a three-ODI series on July 20th but as BCB president Nazmul Hassan is unlikely to return home before 19th, the decision regarding a coach is in all likelihood will be pending till that day.
