After the recent defeat in Zimbabwe, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) doesn’t seem to be pleased with the coaching staff and has summoned them to Dhaka to discuss their future plans. According to reports, the board isn’t happy with the team’s approach, especially in T20 internationals.

They feel that the national coaching unit ought to instil an aggressive mindset in the players to succeed in the shortest format. Bangladesh, notably, has lost 15 limited over’s matches out of 19 since their home win over Australia and New Zealand.

Lack of intent and aggressive approach has led to Bangladesh’s downfall in T20 internationals.

“The support staff is very dedicated but maybe their way of coaching is different. Some coaches are aggressive, some coaches aren’t aggressive,” BCB cricket operations chairman Jalal Yunus told reporters at the Mirpur on Monday (August 8).

“You talk about Hathurusingha [who coached Bangladesh from 2014 to 2017] – he has the aggressive style we need. Our head coach [Russell Domingo] is a very knowledgeable coach, but he is not that aggressive. We want that aggression.”

“We feel Chandika can motivate players in the right way. Tell them to have an aggressive attitude on the field. I think there lies the difference.”

The Board has categorically stated that they looking for someone who could instil an aggressive mindset into the team. They are likely to have a meeting with the coaching staff on 20th August.

“We need someone who can transform us from playing slow cricket to playing attacking cricket, how it is played in T20s. Our coaches are professional and competent. But we have to discuss the aggression with them. We can’t just replace them on a whim. We have to know their plan. They are supposed to land on August 19, so we are likely to sit the next day.

“We need to have a comprehensive plan until the England [white-ball] series [in March] next year. We have back-to-back tournaments coming up, so there are issues of player availability and injuries,” he added.

“We all saw what happened so you can evaluate what happened in the third T20I. We should have chased down that target. We admitted that we are not good in T20s, so we took a positive approach to make changes in the team,” said Jalal. “We had a very precise plan, which we wanted to implement [in Zimbabwe]. Maybe those we selected didn’t perform up to the mark but we are not totally disappointed,” he added.
