Richard Pybus is scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on Tuesday to face an interview to become the coach of Bangladesh national cricket team.
English-born Pybus, who previously coached the Tigers for four months, taking over from Stuart Law in May 2012, is set to face an interview tomorrow, said BCB media wing chief on Tuesday.
“Yes, he (Richard Pybus) is coming this evening. But, I can’t tell you the exact time of his interview. It will most probably be held tomorrow afternoon,” said Jalal Yunus, chief of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) media committee on Tuesday.
Pybus was Tigers’ head coach for four months. But, his short stint was full of some bitter memories. He had a confrontation with the BCB over the duration of the annual vacation and once even accused the BCB of providing the cricketers with unhealthy food.
BCB is looking for a new guardian for the Tigers after the resignation of Sri Lanka-born Chandika Hathurusingha in October.
According to the BCB sources, former head coach of West Indies and Ireland Phil Simmons and former Australian cricketer, coach and selector Geoff Marsh are also on the BCB list.
