New coach to be appointed in a fortnight, Hassan suggests

BCB to broaden contract list

Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan has said the selection of the head coach for the national cricket team will be done in a fortnight and former South African opening batsman Gary Kirsten is among those being considered for the post.

"Hopefully, we will finalise it in about 10-15 days' time. I will not disclose the names yet because they have commitments. It will be a two years' contract, whoever he is he will be with us at least till the World Cup," Hassan told PTI in Kolkata where he attended a meeting of the International Cricket Council.

Tigers have been without a head coach since Sri Lankan Chandika Hathurusingha stepped down in October last year. Hassan suggested that multiple coaches could be appointed.

"We are planning for multiple coaches and some of them may not be fulltime. We are also in talks with Gary Kirsten," Hassan said.

Hassan also suggested that while the number of centrally contracted players will remain at 10, however BCB are considering broadening the contract system.

"We have broadened the contract system. There won't be any fixed number of players in A list and like that. It will be on the basis of performance. Whoever does well, will be included in A list. It was 16 before in the contract system. Now it could be 50. It's open but now it depends purely on performance. Some players like Mosaddek Hussain, Liton Das can get into A list," he said.
