Bangladesh to continue with local coaches till World Cup 2022
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to carry on with the local coaching staff till the next year’s Women’s World Cup and not look for a foreign coach, Shafiul Alam Chowdhury Nadel, the women’s cricket wing chairman, has said.
“Our local coaching staff will carry on till the qualifying round of the ICC Women’s World Cup which will be held in November in Zimbabwe,” Nadel was quoted as saying by New Age.
“They will also continue in the final stage of the event.”
“Once the pandemic situation turns better we will find someone qualified from Europe or Australia and will finalise the appointment.”
Anju Jain was the last head coach for Bangladesh, whose contract with the board ended after the T20 World Cup last year. Former England coach Mark Robinson was close to being appointed before he took up the role with Warwickshire.
“Our agreement came to an end with the head coach and other coaching staff in March, 2020,” said Nadel. “Later we tried everything to appoint a new coach. But we couldn’t find someone of our required standard.”
Dipa Roi Chowdhury, who has been associated with the national side in the past, is set to be the head coach in the coming months.
