'I know it's Pybus'

While the Bangladesh cricket community is all atwitter with speculation about who the new national coach will be, it seems that a foreign player already knows the answer.

“I think they already named the new coach as I heard that Richard Pybus is the new coach,” said Comilla Victorians' West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo pretty confidently yesterday during an interview with The Daily Star. When told that Pybus was still only one of the candidates, Bravo reconsidered and gave a glowing endorsement of countryman Phil Simmons, who is due to reach Bangladesh to give a presentation to the board on December 9.

“No? Then I think Phil Simmons is the best coach ever and it will be great for Bangladesh cricket to have someone like him. I think he will be very good as Bangladesh cricket is rising up and they need someone who can help them grow; not someone who will change things as they have a settled team, good players like Tamim [Iqbal], Shakib [Al Hasan], Mashrafe [Bin Mortaza] are there so they just need someone to manage and guide them.”
