When asked about the short list of head coach appointment, Mahbubul Anam said that they didn’t disclose it despite having the short list of it.
“President openly told that there is no discussion held over head coach Chandika Hathurusingha. What you hear that is hearsay. Let us do our work. Let us inform you the right thing,” he said.
“We’ve a short list of head coaches. But there is no way to disclose it. We’ll not talk about it at this moment. Just wait for the next two days,” he added.
“There is no timeline here. When we think we’ve got a fine coach, we’ll then disclose it.”
“Our Test Championship games are going to start in India. Our prime efforts will be managed head coach before that.
“The profile is not important. The quality of a coach is important here.
So, don’t talk about profile coach because you don’t see high-profile coach right now. We’ll pick him as a coach when the coach’s quality and our requirement will be matched.” “If we could finish the process of the appointment of the head coach, we’ll appoint coach before the series against Afghanistan. And if it’s not, then be patient.”
