“At this point, getting a coach is very difficult due to Covid, so we have picked them on a short-term basis and if we find them satisfactory, we will continue with them,” BCB cricket operation chairman Akram Khan told
”Prince was a good batsman and we have spoken with our head coach (Domingo) before including him in our set-up. If the players like Herath and we are happy, we will certainly think about him beyond the T20 WC.
