Bangladesh Cricket Board still trying to change Chandika's mind
Chandika Hathurusingha, coach of Bangladesh team, resigned suddenly from his designation in October.

Bangladesh Cricket team is a rising star in international cricket. Behind the new makeover of the team, there is a substantial contribution of coach Chandika Hathurusingha, the former Sri Lanka player. However, the coach forwarded a resignation letter to BCB lately creating a mild furor within BCB management. The coach expressed his wish to resign in October. The board has been trying to change his mind since then. Hathurusingha did not cite any reason for his sudden resignation. On the other hand, BCB has not yet accepted his resignation.

Meanwhile, as there has been no positive response from the former Sri Lankan player, BCB had no option but to look for person to replace the coach. Khaled Mahmud, the assistant coach of the team has also expressed his desire to opt for the post. BCB tried out several attempts to bring Hathurusingha back to the team. The board also, in fact, created a technical committee to discuss the issue, along with others in a short while. Earlier, BCB stated about their surprise at the coach’s sudden decision to resign. Khaled Mahmud still believes Hathurusingha might take back his resignation. He said the board would not leave any stone unturned to change his mind.

Mahmud also confirmed the Board would meet the coach to know the actual reason of his resignation. He said, “no one can deny” the “success graph” of Hathurusingha. BCB is planning to keep the latter on board until the World Cup 2019. However, if the coach does not accept the proposal, the board would request him to stay until January 2018.

As per some reports, the coach was not satisfied with the recent behaviors of BCB officials. It is also reported the coach was held responsible by several persons for the recent failures of team Bangladesh. In the recent tour to South Africa, captain Mushfiqur Rahim criticized the team management. The skipper alleged he was not allowed to decide the fielding positions.
