ICC World Cup, 2007


BCB decides Bashar and Whatmore's fate today.

18 April 2007

The fate of Dav Whatmore as Bangladesh coach will be decided in the executive committee meeting of Bangladesh Cricket Board to be held today (Wednesday).

Whatmore's contract is due to the end of this month after his 4 year tenure as Bangladesh coach. BCB will set its course of action whether they will renew the contract with coach Whatmore, or going for a change of guard with fresh vision.

It was learnt that board general secretary Mahbub Anam communicated with Dav Whatmore who currently in the Caribbean about his interest and Dav expressed his willingness to continue with new terms and conditions. Whatmore is expecting a significant pay rise compared to his previous contract and that might dominate the agenda of the meeting.

Dav Whamore irked some high-ups of BCB after expressing his willingness to take India job and a quarter is not willing to continue with him. BCB might opt for a temporary solution by retaining him next month's home series against India and decide his fate after the series.

Selection of captain and vice-captain for the upcoming India series is another key agenda of the meeting. Habibul Bashar was named captain and Shahriar Nafees his deputy till the World Cup. Both them earned huge criticism for their lack of form in world cup.

Bashar is likely to retain captaincy for the test team and board is expected to declare a new captain for the ODI team. This will be the first instance of separate captains for tests and ODI's in Bangladesh cricket.
