Head coach Russell Domingo is the father of all the weird ideas like removing Shakib Al Hasan from ODIs in ODIs or two wicketkeeper policies in the same series. After the failure of the T20 World Cup, questions are being asked about the management of this strange coach. Not only the World Cup, Bangladesh cricket team under the South African coach for 2 years after taking charge.
Russell Domingo’s laughter never stops
But what a time to be happy! It is not clear what the head coach of Bangladesh cricket team thinks. However, in the position of cricket in the country, it is only acceptable to laugh at being ridiculed or helpless.
The South African coach’s performance does not seem to match the profile. After the 2019 ODI World Cup, English coach Steve Rhodes was fired and a team led by Nazmul Hasan Papon was handed over to Domingo. By 2023, there will be two T20 World Cups and one ODI World Cup. The Proteas coach, who took over in August 2019, had a big challenge ahead of him.
Initially the contract was for 2 year
Which begins with extreme frustration. Bangladesh lost the Test to Afghanistan at home. After that they could not do anything in India and Pakistan tour.Sometimes due to coronavirus did not play on the field for a long time. However, the Tigers did not return to good play under Domingo. The home series against the weaker West Indies and the loss of all matches on the New Zealand tour have been widely criticized.
After a one-day series win against Sri Lanka at home and a tour of Zimbabwe, some relief came back. Domingo kept flying in the sky after losing to Australia and New Zealand by making as many wickets as they wanted in Mirpur.
Mahmudullah flew the balloon of confidence with the certificate of African coach and went to play T20 World Cup. No one knows where the balloon went in the hot sun of Oman and UAE. Heading back to Dhaka, no one wants to find it even in the sky of memory.
Many on the board want to get rid of Domingo.
But the contract for 2 years has already been renewed. Moreover, there is no option of a new foreign coach. So this South African is not losing his chair even though he has lost his confidence. Good luck to the 47-year-old coach. Otherwise, under which he has lost 6 out of 10 Tests, 4 out of 15 ODIs and 16 out of 35 Twenty20s – he will be left with no reason!
