The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have revealed that they are currently in talks with former Sri Lanka batsman Chandika Hathurusingha to take over as the country’s head coach.
The position became vacant when Shane Jurgensen resigned last month.
Hathurusingha, who is the assistant coach at New South Wales, is one of two candidates the BCB are interviewing.
It was also revealed that the board is likely to make a decision next week.
The BCB are aiming to appoint a full-time coach prior to the national team’s three-match ODI series against India in June.
“We are in talks with a few coaches and Hathurusingha is one of them,” BCB president Nazmul Hassan said. “There is someone else as well, but we haven’t finalised anyone yet. I have received some information today. Both are ready to join us, but there are some issues with payment, terms and conditions and clearance.
“We would like a coach to join immediately. If one of those with whom we are talking to is prepared to come early, we will choose him. Otherwise, we will employ a local coach for the India series. We are hoping to take a final decision by Monday.”
