Bangladesh bowling coach Ottis Gibson is not bothered of former Bangladesh captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza’s comment against the team management, saying it is coming from someone ‘outside the circle’.

Former West Indies fast bowler Gibson made the statement on Tuesday when asked of his reaction to Mashrafe’s comment.

Former ODI captain Mashrafe took to his social media account on Monday and blamed coaching stuff for Bangladesh team’s defeat against Sri Lanka in their first game of the Super 12s stage of the ICC T20 World Cup.

“I have no thoughts whatsoever [on Mashrafe’s comment towards the team management]. That doesn't interest or concern me what anybody outside of our circle is saying. We know what we do here as a coaching group, so whatever anybody outside the group is saying doesn't really matter,” said Gibson at the virtual press conference held in Dubai on Tuesday.

Mashrafe in his write-up accepted Liton Das at fault for the two crucial dropped catches that had cost Bangladesh the game but also highlighted failure of the team management which he claims is not being looked at.

“I will not defend Liton for those dropped catches, even he will not. Missing catches is part of the game but do we ask the fielding coach [Ryan Cook] of these failures? Is this the first-time catches have been missed? Since 2019 World Cup, almost everyone in the team management lost their jobs except for the fielding coach,” said Mashrafe in his post.

“Does this mean we have taken the best fielding side in the World Cup? The team management now looks simply like a rehab center where all coaches without jobs in South Africa has been gathered. It is tough to get rid of them because the termination clause is heavy. So it stands that they will stay as long as they want and do whatever they want in the dressing room,” said the most successful ODI captain of the country.

Mashrafe in his statement was vocal of head coach Russell Domingo bringing in staff from South Africa and making a management that he can control.

“The head coach is appointing people from his country and removing those who are temporary. He is setting up his own team. My question is why Russell does not step up for the team like he does for his men in the team management. Why players like Tamim [Iqbal], Mushfiqur [Rahim] and Mahmudullah are not happy in the team. Isn’t this [keeping the players happy] part of his job as well?” asked Mashrafe.
