Tigers look for new coach

Kamal could soon be out of a job
Bangladesh cricket bosses have confirmed coach Moshin Kamal is on his way out after the country's poor World Cup.
Ali Asghar Loby, president of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, said: "We are looking for a new coach. We will get the best - money is no problem."

Kamal was heavily criticised after the newest Test-playing nation failed to register a win in South Africa.

Loby said that a new coach could be in place by May but refused to confirn Kamal would be asked to go before his one-year deal expires on 30 April.

"We have contacted and are in discussion with some potential candidates, and we will know soon," he said.

Dire performance

Former Pakistani Test player Kamal replaced Australian Trevor Chappell last year.

Loby also said that a two-man inquiry was set to begin investigating Bangladesh's dire World Cup performance.

"They will talk to everyone and find out what went wrong," he said.

Bangladesh's Cup campaign began with a shock 60-run defeat by minnows Canada, and ended with a 32-run loss to Kenya.

The latter was their 29th consecutive defeat in limited-overs internationals.

They probably would have lost all six matches but for a rain-forced tie with the West Indies.

Bangladesh have lost 15 of their 16 Tests since gaining Test status in 2000. The other match was a rain-affected draw.
