Jahangir Alam and Masud Parvez Rajon, the local coaches of Dhaka Division and Rangpur Division respectively, were replaced after being summoned by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan yesterday for not fielding leg-spinners in the ongoing National Cricket League.
Dhaka coach Jahangir was replaced by Md Selim while Rangpur coach Rajon was replaced by Jafrul Ehsan.
Jubair Hossain Likhon, who plays for Dhaka, was not named in the playing eleven despite being in the squad while Rishad Hossain of Rangpur was not even named in the squad for the second round.
“We have summoned the coaches to explain why they did not play them [the two leg-spinners]. They must answer. Why would they not play them even after being instructed?” a furious BCB president Nazmul told the media yesterday.
