Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan took a completely U-turn regarding head coach Steve Rhodes as he insisted there is possibility of his staying further 48 hours after it was declared both parties have separated mutually.
BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury on Monday announced that board have decided to part ways with the Englishman after both parties agreed to separate on mutual understanding despite the contract ran until next ICC World Twenty20.
‘'We can call it a mutual separation. We are implementing it from now onwards and that means he is not available with us from the tour of Sri Lanka,’’ Nizamuddin told reporters after the decision was taken on the basis of the World Cup performance of Bangladesh.
However, Nazmul gave an explanation regarding the status of Rhodes that is completely different from the development that was projected to the media by the BCB chief executive earlier.
‘’I will talk about this in details at Dhaka. The second thing is, shortage is not an issue. Mainly, after the World cup coaching staffs and players are evaluated. This is one type of process of this. Everyone has their own style. I am not saying his style is bad,’’ Nazmul told reporters in England on Wednesday.
‘’But the thing that happens sometimes is that when the mentality doesn’t match it creates problems. That why we are thinking about that but we haven’t excluded him yet,’’ he said.
‘’He had an option. If he wants he can stay too maybe for a few more months. We have discussed with him mutually. There is a possibility that he may leave. But we haven’t got anything from him yet. As a result, options are not over yet,’’ he said.
‘’Maybe he can be here, we didn’t talk about that. We have some differences in our thinking. The question is, he will continue or not. And there is a possibility that he can continue. I think he will give it. I don’t know it yet. May be he gave it last night or today. I didn’t receive anything from his side. We have T20 World Cup approaching, so we want to finish this as early as possible,’’ he said adding that he don’t want to blame the backroom staff for the debacle in World Cup.
‘’We can’t just blame this on two coaches. We will do everything that we can regarding this.( New coach or old coach),’’ he said.
