As per reports, Bangladesh High Performance Unit’s head coach Toby Radford will not mentor the team in the upcoming series against Ireland Wolves. The Welsh coach will be replaced by Sri Lankan coach Champaka Ramanayake for the role.
Bangladesh High Performance team is set to play a home series against Ireland Wolves comprising one four-day game, five one-day matches, and two Twenty20s. Bangladesh has named a 20-player squad for the one-month-long series.
“Toby is not coming during the home series against Ireland Wolves as he is sick and won’t be able to travel to Bangladesh. Champaka (Ramanayake) has already joined the training camp in Chattogram and he will be in charge during the series,” CricBuzz quoted High Performance manager Jamal Babu as saying on Thursday.
