Bangladesh fires coaches for not fielding leg spinners

Bangladesh is serious about its plans to hunt for a spin wizard as they have fired two first-class cricket coaches for not fielding any leg spinner in the ongoing National Cricket League (NCL). 

This sudden burgeoning need to find a top-notch leg spinner culminated after Bangladesh felt it was their major weak link in the side and they could increase their win percentage by having a skilful leggie in their ranks. 

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) officials position hold weight as the team struggled big-time against the cunning guile of Rashid Khan who wreaked havoc on Bangladesh in the recently concluded series. 

BCB confirmed today that they have sacked two coaches for not abiding by the rules. Dhaka didn't field Jubair Hossain and Khulna overlooked Rishad Hossain - both legspinners weren't seen in action during the first round of Bangladesh premier domestic competition. 

"We had given clear instructions to play leg-spinners in the NCL, but neither... was picked in the starting eleven," BCB president Nazmul Hassan told media on Thursday.

"We have to give them game time. How can they improve otherwise?" Nazmul Hassan asked bluntly from the media while criticising the coaches.

Chittagong and Dhaka Metropolis both followed the new directive and played leg-spinners Minhajul Abedin and Aminul Islam in the NCL. 

Hassan went so far as to say that it will be compulsory for teams to field leg spinner in the upcoming Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 league.

"They (teams) must have a leg-spinner in the squad and if he is a local he must be picked in the best XI," Hassan instructed.
