“Yes, we have chosen Sriram up until the World Cup,” a BCB director told The Daily Star on condition of anonymity about the former India cricketer.

“As we are moving forward with a fresh mindset, the new coach will be seen from the Asia Cup onwards. And since the T20 World Cup is our main target, he (a new coach) will not get time to adapt if he is not recruited from the Asia Cup. Many may say that there is not much left for the Asia Cup. However, as I said, our main focus is the T20 World Cup,” the BCB official was quoted as saying in the report.
