BCB did not offer Aminul

Sports Reporter

Contrary to rumours floating around, former national captain Aminul Islam has not been offered to become Bangladesh's head coach. He however told reporters that it was a job that he was interested in, provided the right conditions are placed.
"Everyone wishes to be the head coach of a team in international cricket. It's a big step and if it's a Test team then there's nothing like it," said Islam who was present during the final of the Bangladesh Cricket League at Mirpur yesterday.
"Whatsoever, I did not get any proposal from the Bangladesh Cricket Board. And I guess the president has already made up his mind of not appointing a local coach, so there's nothing much to talk about.
"I have been working with the ACC for six years now, so even if they do offer me the job, there will be a number of steps and conditions to consider," he added.
The board's lack of confidence in a local coach is a concern that, according to Islam, should be addressed.
"There is a department that works with coaches. And it's been 14 years since Bangladesh received Test status. So if there's no coach that they are confident in, then it's a sector that needs to be worked upon," said Islam.
Islam's career is heading towards a busier path as he is likely to join Cricket Victoria, an Australian Sports Association, as a part-time batting consultant.


"I have had one meeting with them. I have been asked to join as a part-time batting consultant and also work with their education programme," said Islam.
