The Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hassan Papon said on Saturday that they will make a final call on head coach Russell Domingo after getting the report from the fact-finding committee.

The BCB earlier formed a two-member committee including their directors Enayet Husain Siraj and Jalal Yunus to review their national team’s performance in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

According to the BCB boss, they are expected to get the report soon that will help them take a decision on Domingo, who seems to be counting his days in the national team dressing room.

“We are waiting for the fact-finding report and we are expecting to get it soon and later we will take a decision on Domingo. We feel that by January we will be able to take a decision on him,” Nazmul told reporters in Mirpur.

“I’m not surprised as I have been informed informally that there’s nothing serious in the report. I knew this would be the case.

“We got a few important things (in the report) but It’s nothing related to the coaching staff. What can you do if the players say there’s nothing wrong with the coach? You can’t do anything then. If the players do have any problem with the coach, they won’t say it easily.

“In the midst of the World Cup, Domingo came up and said that he has an offer and he is willing to take that unless we extend his contract. Then we extended it and till now it remains that way,” he said, adding that he is also aware that all is not well in the national team dressing room.

“I hear about the distance between coach and players but nobody tells me from his place. If you can’t get to the bottom of it, the problem won’t be solved. We will take these decisions in January,” he concluded.
