Hathurusingha set to return as Bangladesh head coach?

Published

on

Chandika Hathurusingha looks set to return as the head coach of the Bangladesh national men’s team with Cricket New South Wales confirming that he is leaving the position of assistant coach with them.

Though it’s yet to be officially announced, ‘espncricinfo’ says that they understand that Hathurasingha would be brought back.

BCB president Nazmul Hassan said on Monday that the new head coach – to replace Russell Domingo – would be appointed between February 18 and 20.

Hathurusingha was with the Bangladesh team from 2014 to 2017, with the famous ODI-winning streak at home starting under his watch. He left unceremoniously after the South Africa tour in 2017, before returning to Bangladesh with the Sri Lanka team as its head coach a few months later. The BCB has, in the past, said it wanted a coach like Hathurusingha, known to be stern and aggressive, and after his departure, both Steve Rhodes (2018 to 2019) and Domingo (2019 to 2022) were thought of as soft by the BCB.
