Former Indian cricketer Sridharan Sriram, who was named the organization’s technical consultant last week, will manage the T20 team, according to Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hassan.

Just days before the Asia Cup, Bangladesh informed head coach Russell Domingo that he would no longer be in charge of the Twenty20 team and instructed him to concentrate on Test and one-day international cricket. The T20 team will be managed by former Indian cricketer Sridharan Sriram, who was named the technical consultant last week, according to Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan. The T20 lineup won’t include Russell Domingo. At a press conference in Dhaka, Nazmul said, “He will be with ODIs and Tests. The T20 team has no “head coach,” he continued.

We have coaches for batting, spinning, fast bowling, and fielding. Moreover, we have the captain. For T20s, we also have a technical consultant. He’ll lay out the strategy, he said.

In August 2019, Domingo, a 47-year-old South African, was chosen to lead Bangladesh. His initial contract was for two years. It was extended by the BCB last year until November 2023. However, Bangladesh has had trouble in the T20 format under Domingo, as evidenced by their failure to win a match during the Super 12 round of the World Cup in the United Arab Emirates last year.

They have only won two of their last 15 T20 matches, and earlier this month, they lost their first series to Zimbabwe. Domingo praised the BCB’s choice to divide the positions, calling it a “wonderful” concept. It helps me focus nicely on the Test match and other 50-over games, he remarked.

“In T20s, we’ve got some terrific successes and some awful results,” he remarked. “I don’t believe it is a bad idea to adopt a novel strategy in T20s.

He said, “It is not about me. “I am all for making the squad better.”

Bangladesh departs on Tuesday for the Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates, where they will play in Group B against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. Beginning on Saturday is the tournament.

Meanwhile, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan claimed that after being reappointed as the T20 captain last week, he was more determined than before. Shakib told reporters, “I will try to help the squad as much as I can with whatever expertise I have.

“I think we’re a good team. You’ll see that we have the capacity if we can utilize our resources to their fullest potential once or twice.

“Even if we lose a game, we should make sure to either force the game into extra innings or content so that people can see we are getting better,” the coach advised.

Prior to their trip to Australia for the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh will compete in a tri-nation competition in New Zealand in October that also features the hosts and Pakistan.
