Australian Richard McInnes, who guided Bangladesh to the Under-19 World Cup plate title in 2004, is all set to replace Dave Whatmore as Bangladesh’s cricket coach.
“His name would be announced by June 2,” a Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) official said. “A final decision on the coach is just days away, but we have zeroed in on Richard McInnes. The talks with him are in very advanced stage,” he added.
McInnes, also a former senior coach at Australia’s Centre of Excellence, was junior Bangladesh coach when the team beat Australia to win the Plate title at the U-19 World Cup held in Bangladesh.
Whatmore is to leave Bangladesh after four-year tenure that ends on May 29 with the ongoing two-match Test series against India. “We talked to 10 coaches from different countries, except England, and decided McInnes would be best suited to our requirements. We consulted players who gave their consent on McInnes,” the official explained. BCB official said McInnes’ salary would be less than that of Whatmore, who was getting between $120,000 and $130,000 per year.
