It is in the air that BCB will decide whether to extend the contracts of their foreign coaches. It will be when they gather for their next board meeting.

Since Sridharan Sriram’s contract also expired with the T20 WC. The BCB has not yet stated whether they will continue to work with him. However, board insiders claim that since the BCB is happy with his performance in the competition. He is expected to receive an extension.

To lead the team in preparation for the India series, Bangladesh’s Test and ODI head coach Russell Domingo will arrive on November 14.

IND Vs BAN: Experimentation with Coaching

The BCB decided to use split coaching before the Asia Cup because the board was not happy with Domingo’s performance in the shortest format. Instead, Sriram was appointed as a technical consultant and given control of the T20 setup.

After the tri-series opener in New Zealand, the Bangladesh team management decided to rest Mustafizur Rahman. And Donald was given the assignment to work on his bowling action to assist him to regain his previous rhythm.
