Foreign coaches set to leave by tomorrow; will return on Apr 23

A Bangladesh Cricket Board official said on Friday that their foreign coaching panel headed by Chandika Hathu-rusingha would leave Dhaka by tomorrow and they would return here on April 23 to pre-pare the team for the upcom-ing Ireland tour.

Bangladesh recently played against England and Ireland on their home soil and after the se-ries completion, the coaches are set to leave for their respective homes to be with their families.

Four coaches including Hathurusingha will leave today while others will follow them tomorrow.

“They will return on April 23 and later, we will decide whether we will have any camp or not as the Dhaka Premier League is going on,” said the BCB official.

Bangladesh will face Ire-land respectively on May 9, 12 and 14 in Chelmsford, Eng-land and the three-match ODI series is also part of the ICC World Cup Super League.

The hosts will be keen to sweep away Bangladesh as that will guarantee them a place in the next World Cup in India lat-er this year. But if that is not the case, Ireland will have to

play in theWorld Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe in June-July.
