Default New Fielding Coach Coming,Still searching for Spin coach

BCB doing good job so far.

Ruwan Kalpage is set to quit his role as Sri Lanka's acting assistant coach to take up a job as Bangladesh fielding coach, but Sri Lanka spin coach Piyal Wijetunge has been convinced to stay, SLC CEO Ashley de Silva confirmed.

Both Kalpage and Wijetunge had sent letters of resignation to the Sri Lankan board earlier this week, but while Kalpage's has been accepted, the executive committee has given Wijetunge a counter-offer.

"The ExCo and Wijetunge had a discussion, and he took a decision to withdraw his resignation," de Silva said. "The negotiations had something to do with a better offer too."

BCB director Jalal Yunus said Bangladesh will now have to look at other candidates for the role of spin coach. "He (Wijetunge) had signed an agreement with us but we are now aware that he has been convinced to stay back in Sri Lanka," Yunus said. "So it is certain that he won't be coming to Bangladesh."

Mohammad Nazimuddin can multitask like nobody else in the history of the game. Too bad our myopic selectors simply don't see what mankind has known since time immemorial.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)

Yes, SLC seems to have been able to convince Wijetunge to stay back. Would have been a good coach for us, considering his experience from grass root level.

Lets hope BCB can identify more candidates. Its always better to have a permanent staff than the type of agreement with had with Saqlain.

Until a good full-timer is found, we need Saqlain.
