The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to keep head Coach Chandika Hathurusingha on the panel of selectors.
BCB President Nazmul Hassan explained the reasons behind the change to the board’s technical committee on Monday, foreign media reports.
He discussed the issue with the members of the committee -- Shafiq-ul Huque Heera, Jahangir Shah Badshah and Athar Ali Khan -- at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
They discussed the composition of the National Selection Panel and the appointment of a new bowling coach to improve the performance of the Test side.
“We’ve discussed the proposals. They (technical committee members) have agreed with me. The coach was in the selectors’ panel during their time. So we all think he should be retained in the selectors' panel," Hassan said.
Earlier, Coach Dav Whatmore was included in the panel.
The panel has been taking Hathurusingha’s opinion while forming the team. Now it is formally approving him as a selector.
