Former New Zealand head coach Mike Hesson is expected to arrive on August 14 to sit with the Bangladesh Cricket Board high-ups as he had altered his plan of arriving on last Friday, said BCB official.

However, BCB official added that there is no guarantee that Hesson would arrive on 14 and if that is the case it is unlikely that BCB will wait him for him any further.

According to sources in that case Russel Domingo, the former Proteas who presented his plans to board high-ups earlier is likely to replace Steve Rhodes.

A number of high-profile names like Mike Hesson, Paul Farbrace and Chandika Hathurusingha have come to the fore for interviews but according to BCB high-ups now the race is only between Hesson and Domingo.

 Hesson’s name has garnered some attention as the New Zealander stepped down as Kings XI Punjab coach yesterday, although he has also emerged as a possible candidate for the coveted post of India’s head coach.

BCB had appointed South African Gary Kirsten as a consultant in May last year to recommend and direct the board in matters regarding appointment of coaches at various cricketing levels. It is through that process that Rhodes was appointed, only for the board to reach a conclusion after 13 months that the gentleman’s style did not go with what the board wanted.

This time, there is no special committee and apparently no specific vision to find the head coach and instead the focus seems only to be getting a big name with immediate effect.
