Bangladesh High-Performance bowling coach Champaka Ramanayake decided to join HP Unit in January following a notice issued by Bangladesh Cricket Board regarding his availability.

Champaka did not attend the first phase of the HP Unit camp that ended in November as his parents were sick on that point of time while it is not clear whether he will be available during the next HP Unit camp, scheduled in January.

There was speculation that Champaka is not ready to join the HP camp as he was expecting the head coach post that was later handed over to Toby Radford.

Cricfrenzy learnt that he is expected to arrive in January to attend the High-Performance camp.

BCB game development chairman Naimur Rahman confirmed that had already issued a letter to Champaka asking him about his availability while a top BCB official involved with HP unit adding that they would be looking for an alternative if he is not available.

‘’We have sent him a letter to know about his availability during our next HP camp,’’ said Naimur on Thursday.

‘’If he is available it is one thing but if he is not available than we have to look for an alternative,’’ he said.
