BCB to Review the Contracts of Their Foreign Coaches

Bangladesh Cricket Board considers reviewing the contracts of their foreign coaches as they expect to lose some funds amid COVID-19. 

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) says that they will be unlike other cricket board who are considering to cut off salaries from their coaches. However, they are most likely to review their agreement with their coaches once their office resumes. 

Like all other employees, the foreign cricket coaching staff of Bangladesh is on indefinite leave. After a match series against Zimbabwe held last March, all coaches left for their respective countries. Due to the lockdown, everyone currently awaits the global situation to go back to normal.  

As per BCB cricket operation chairman Akram Khan, they will have to review the contracts of the coaches if ever the board will lose five to six months of their revenue. Some of those whose contracts need to be reviewed are the annual contracts of head coach Russell Domingo, pace bowling coach Otis Gibson, and physio Julian Calefato. Others which need to be considered are the day-to-day basis contracts of spin consultant Daniel Vettori, batting coach Neil Mackenzie, and fielding coach Ryan Cook. 

As per Khan, ‘We might have to review the contracts of the coaches when things get normal because if we lose five to six months, certainly we need to see what can be done to serve the purposes of both parties. Vettori is very expensive so we have to see how things can be done with him as well’.

With regards to Vettori’s case, Khan said, ‘We will pay him for the actual number of days he worked. There is no chance to pay more as it will be paid on the basis of the number of days he has worked for us. Those with whom we are contracted on a daily basis, if the situation gets normal and we need to use them, then we will use them. If not, then we will not use them. The board will decide what will happen to others’. 

The BCB is the governing body of Bangladesh which overlooks all cricket matches in the country as well as the Bangladesh Premier League. To learn more about this league, check out Betwala.
