BCB will announce new coach name in one or two days

The Bangladesh Cricket Board is set to announce the name of the new men’s national team head coach in a day or two.

BCB completed their search through a last batch of teleconferences with the shortlisted candidates. They are now working to reach a decision.

Bangladesh head coach was vacant following the board’s decision to part ways with Steve Rhodes.

[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.
