Bangladesh selectors' contracts not renewed

ESPNcricinfo staff

The Bangladesh selectors' contracts, which expire on April 30, will not be renewed the Bangladesh Cricket Board has said. The three-man committee is headed by Rafiqul Alam and includes former captain Akram Khan and Zahid Razzak.

The decision comes as part of a revamp of the Bangladesh cricket setup, after a disappointing World Cup performance. Coach Jamie Siddons departed earlier this month, after Bangladesh succumbed 3-0 to Australia at home, while a host of support staff are either leaving or under review. While bowling coach Ian Pont has already parted ways with Bangladesh cricket, strength and conditioning coach Grant Trafford Luden will stay on for another year and the future of fielding coach Julien Fountain and physio Michael Henry is as yet unclear.

The BCB has also decided to initiate legal proceedings against Nimbus Sports International, to recover outstanding dues in connection with television broadcast rights.
