Bangladesh cricket team head coach Russell Domingo informed that he has not been officially ordered to share team strategies with Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan.

The topic of the national team management being ordered to share strategies and tactics with the BCB chief ahead of a game has been doing the rounds in the cricketing fraternity.

Following a meeting with the senior national cricketers Wednesday, Nazmul told the media of his latest stance – his wish to meddle with team affairs.

“I have told them that they have to give me the batting sequence and cannot drop a player in one game and then pick him again. I understand that they want to try out a few boys. Our coach, who is relatively new, wants to see the fast bowlers. But whatever happens, they have to let me know in advance," said the BCB boss to the reporters.

Domingo however, prior to the lone Test match against Zimbabwe starting Saturday at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka, said he has not yet been told to perform this unique task.

“My dealings with the president [Nazmul], he is very passionate about the team. He wants the team to do really well. I haven’t spoken to him as yet. I have had some good practice sessions in the last week,” said Domingo Friday.

“I haven’t been officially told about that [informing Nazmul of team strategies] I need to tell anyone about the team. I am not under any impression that I need to do it, as yet. I am as passionate about the team as the president. I am paid a salary to make decisions and do my work,” he added.

After joining as Bangladesh head coach in August 2019, Domingo said he is not surprised with the culture in Bangladesh cricket.

Having come from South Africa, where Domingo had to keep the racial quotas in mind while selecting the team, the former Proteas head coach said he is not uncomfortable with how the most popular sport is run in Bangladesh.

“Guys remember I come from South Africa. A lot of trouble goes in there. It is not like I am coming from England or Australia where it is easy, where you do what you want to. I come from South Africa. It is tough there as well. Selection is not easy. There are people with a lot of opinions and agendas. It is part of my job, and I have to deal with it. Make the most of it,” said Domingo.

“Important thing for me is that I keep the players and the captains away from it. I have to be the in-between guy. It is a big role but I have done it before in South Africa. There’s a lot of trouble and challenges, so no different for me. I am cool with it,” he concluded.
