Otis Gibson is no longer extending his contract as the pace bowling coach of Bangladesh. The news of his leaving Bangladesh became final on Thursday. However, in a recent interview, the Caribbean coach said that he was interested in doing more work in Bangladesh, but no one from Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) showed any interest.

When asked after such a memorable victory in New Zealand, why did he quit his job as a pace bowling coach in Bangladesh? Gibson said, “It's wrong to say that I quit my job. My contract was actually coming to an end. You can say that the term is not increasing anymore.

There was no apathy on my part. You ask the BCB if they want to renew the contract, if so, when?”

When asked, Cricket operations chairman Jalal Yunus said they had called him about a new deal, he said, when did they call me? Who called?

“Listen, no one from the BCB contacted me about the contract, no one called. Neither Nizam Chowdhury nor the chairman of cricket operations. I did not get any response from them. I sent an e-mail to CEO Nizamuddin on December 29, but he did not respond. Khaled Mahmud Sujon was here, we talked to about this. But he did not want to comment whether I am my contract wil get renewed or not.”
