DHAKA, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) interviewed former South Africa coach Russell Domingo for a role as a head coach, which remains vacant after the board mutually parted ways with Steve Rhodes
following the disappointing performance in World Cup (WC).
Domingo is the first of three coaches for head coach post shortlisted by
BCB to give the interview on Wednesday.
Chairman of BCB Media and Communications Committee Jalal Younus said the
rest of the two coaches will be interviewed very soon.
Younus, however, was reluctant to disclose their names and even the date
when they will be interviewed. We'll try to take the interview of the rest
of the two coaches within very short time. But at the moment I am not in a
position to disclose who those two coaches are and when they will be
interviewed. What I can say is that we'll try to take the interview before
Eid break, Younus said here on Wednesday.
He also disclosed that they are trying to finalize the name of the head
coach within next 10 days.
Younus termed Russell's presentation during his two and half hours long
interview as pleasing.
He presented his future plan with Bangladesh cricket team and I will say
it is quite satisfactory. His background is also good. He is now with South
Africa A team and he was the coach of South African national team. But it's
not the end of the world as I said that we have two coaches also. We'll see
how they present their plan, he added.
Younus, the BCB spokesperson also said that those three coaches were
shortlisted from 12 coaches.
All I can say that we will appoint a coach within this three. There is
little possibility that we will go for another option.
Domingo arrived in the country at 10.40 am and went straight to Beximco
Pharma, the corporate office of BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon.
He is set to leave the country on Thursday.
Domingo took over as the coach of South Africa T20 side in 2012 before he
replaced Gary Kirsten in the remaining formats in 2013. He was in charge of
the Proteas till 2017 before Otis Gibson took over in 2017.
BCB has already appointed former South Africa pacer Charl Langeveldt as
the pace bowling coach of Bangladesh while Daniel Vettori was appointed the
