Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusinghe on Thursday sidetracked the question regarding his chances of touring India with the ‘A’ team. With most of the national players touring to India with the ‘A’ team, Hathurusinghe will be left alone to coach only a handful of senior players, who nonetheless will be involved in the National Cricket League during that period of time.It will leave Hathurusinghe, who draws more money from the Bangladesh Cricket Board than the collective salaries of all contracted national players, virtually with nothing to do during that period.
The question therefore has been raised whether Hathurusinghe should accompany the ‘A’ team in India to directly monitor the progress of his charges.
The Sri Lankan, who developed an ill-reputation of egoistic behaviour, reacted sharply by the question saying that only his bosses have the rights to make such a decision.
‘You are not my boss. The bosses will decide. Thank you very much for your opinion,’ he said during a press conference in Dhaka.
