“It was disappointing that they were telling it to others but did not tell me anything,” Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo slams his remarks on BCB

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has been criticized from Test and ODI head coach Russell Domingo for making so much ruckus that they feel it hinders the players’ development in the shorter format. The BCB recently decided to hand over control of the T20 setup to newly appointed T20 technical director Sridharan Sriram until the upcoming World Cup after Domingo’s protracted losing streak, which included only two victories from the 13 games they played after the ICC T20 World Cup with one game being washed away.

While BCB cricket operations chairman Jalal Yunus claimed that Domingo lacked aggression, BCB technical director Khaled Mahmud officially stated that Domingo’s attitude did not suit them in the shortest format.

Domingo opened up after BCB’s comments on his performance as a coach

“Everyone has his own opinion and it was disappointing that they were telling it to others but did not tell me anything. I haven’t read it but people came and told me. But I am happy with what I have done with the T20 team and I am not worried about anything,” Domingo was quoted saying to a leading Bangladeshi Daily, Prothom Alo, on Wednesday. “I won’t say that I was shocked (after being snubbed) but as a coach, you have to be ready for everything and if the team is losing you cannot guarantee your future. I know there are a lot of questions about the team and considering that it (my removal from T20s) wasn’t totally unexpected,” he said.
