Important developments at 28th Board Meeting
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in its 28th Executive Committee meeting has decided to bring changes to the National Team Management and support staff.
"It has been agreed that National Team Head Coach Jamie Siddons' contract, which expires on 30 June 2011, will not be extended. We are really appreciative of Jamie's contribution over the last four years and the successes he has had with the National Team. However, we feel the time is right to ring in changes in the Team Management and support staff. We are going to invite applications for the Head Coach's position very soon," said Chairman Media & Communications Committee Mohammed Jalal Yunus.
"The contract of bowling coach Ian Pont has expired and fielding coach Julien Fountain's tenure will end this (April) month. We will also advertise for these specialist positions as early as possible."
The Board has retained the services of strength and conditioning coach Grant Trafford Luden until March 2012 while physio Michael Henry's contract, which is due to expire on 30 April, will be reviewed over the coming weeks.
The Media Committee Chairman also informed that the Board will discuss the future of the National Selection Committee. The tenure of the three-member committee also ends this month.
