Decision on Domingo’s future as Bangladeshi coach in January: BCB

Bangladesh’s head coach Russell Domingo’s future will be decided in January following the report of the commission of inquiry, Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan said on Saturday (December 4).

Domingo’s days could be numbered despite his contract being officially extended by BCB in October in the wake of the debacle at the T20 World Cup 2021. Bangladesh lost all five of their Super 12 meetings and crashed embarrassingly out of the tournament.

BCB has formed a committee of inquiry consisting of BCB director Jalal Yunus and Enayet Hossain, while he also includes team director – Khaled Mahmud – in the national locker room to monitor things. Cricbuzz understands that the South African is aware of the development, but is not willing to talk about it yet.

“We are waiting for the fact-finding report and we expect to get it soon and then we will make a decision on Domingo. We feel that in January we will be able to take a call,” Nazmul told reporters in Mirpur . “I am not surprised as I have been informally informed that there is nothing serious in the report. I knew that would be the case.

“We have a few important things (in the report), but it’s nothing related to the coaching staff. What can you do if the players say there is nothing wrong with the coach? Then you can do nothing. If the players have a problem with the coach, they will not say it easily.

“In the middle of the World Cup, Domingo came up and said he has an offer and he is willing to accept it unless we extend his contract. Then we extended it, and so far it is.”

Nazmul hinted that the board wants to get to the bottom of the issue if all is not well in the national locker room. “I hear about the distance between coach and players, but no one tells me from his place.

“If you can not get to the bottom of it, the problem will not be solved. We must first know the problem. If they say there is no problem in the investigation report, it is not only that. I know what is wrong. .. If there’s something wrong with the coaching staff, we will change it. What if they do not listen to the coach? It does not matter if we get another coach. So the problem is complicated. We try to go as deep as possible, and make a fair decision. “

Nazmul also supported the decision to prepare low and slow wickets against New Zealand and Australia despite being criticized for taking this route as he feels it served their purpose – to secure a place in the next T20 World Cup in Australia next year without having to go through the qualifying round due to better rankings now as a result of the series wins.

“What if we lost the Australia and New Zealand series? Who would benefit? Why is there so much talk about the courses? Because we won both series, we have qualified directly for the next World Cup,” said Nazmul.

“The whole World Cup [in UAE], wickets were exactly like ours. Why should we get them to play on fast or bouncy wickets at home before [such a] World Cup, “he asked.
