Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has named Chandika Hathurusingha as Head Coach. Russel Domingo resigned from the post after India Tests without citing any reasons. Bangladesh showed a lot of promise but couldn’t win the 2nd Test match after being on the cusp of a great triumph against India.

This would be Chandika Hathurusingha’s second tenure in Bangladesh as earlier he served as the Coach from 2014 to 2017. Under his tenure, Bangladesh went to the Semi-Finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Chandika resigned from the post of Assistant Coach in the New South Wales setup.
