Richard Pybus on shortlist to be Bangladesh coach

Richard Pybus arrived in Dhaka on Tuesday to be interviewed for the position of Bangladesh's head coach. He is no stranger to the role, having been in charge for a few brief months in 2012.

Pybus, who was seen sitting with BCB president Nazmul Hassan and watching the second BPL game of the day at Shere Bangla stadium, is on a shortlist of candidates the BCB is hoping to meet in the near future.

ESPNcricinfo understands that former West Indies coach Phil Simmons is one among that list, ESPN Cricinfo reports.

"He [Pybus] is in our short-list," Akram Khan, the cricket operations committee chairman, said. "We will finalise it after talking with all the [BCB] directors. We don't want to hastily make a decision, as we want to take a coach for 2-3 years. We have three or four coaches in our shortlist. We are thinking of interviewing all of them. But we will finalise it after talking to [Pybus]."

Pybus was Bangladesh's head coach from June to October 2012 before he left, rather unceremoniously, due to issues relating to his contract and interference from the BCB directors. He said at the time: "My position was undermined consistently by interference from the board, some of whom were not only obstructive, but seemed to be completely ignorant of cricket." Pybus has also served as director of cricket for West Indies.

The Bangladesh head coach position has been vacant since Chandika Hathurusingha tendered his resignation in October. Neither the BCB nor Hathurusingha has revealed the exact reason for the development.
