Dav Whatmore Unhappy With BCB Comments

Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore is extremely unhappy after BCB CEO Mahmudur Rahman questioned his communication ability with sub-continent teams.

Mahmudur Rahman in an interview with Indian news agency Times Now said, "Whatmore being an Australian approaches things the Australian way, whereas the players in the sub-continent are an emotional lot. Dav is not used to giving explanations."

Him comments came as a bolt from the blue to the Bangladeshi media and players, and Whatmore is now considering legal action against the BCB for bringing his name to disrepute.

BCB high officials are trying hard to clear the air but Rahman’s comment has irked Whatmore as it effectively put a question mark over his man-management skill.

Bangladesh captain Habibul Bashar rubbished Rahman’s claim and thanked Whatmore for his outstanding contribution for Bangladesh cricket. According to Bashar, players never experienced any communication problem with Whatmore in his 4 years tenure.

Dav Whatmore has worked in excess of nine years as a coach of sub-continental team and is the most likely contender to succeed Greg Chappell as India coach.
