Despite the expected success in series against Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, even West Indies, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh surprised the cricket world by winning the series in South Africa. This is last year! Even the last series before his resignation, the series was a great success against opponents like India.
Few would have believed that after such a series win, after going through the process and planning for three years with an eye on the World Cup, he resigned on his own. Rather, it has been established that the BCB bosses, desperate to get Chandika Hathurusinghe back as coach, pushed Domingo into a position of resignation.
Today, when the team is winning the World Cup under the coaching of Hathurusingha, it is not unusual to think of a Domingo.
Domingo’s limitations as a coach, there were certainly areas of deficiency. Various stories of tension in the party have been heard. Whether he is qualified enough or not, the doubt has sometimes arisen. But the statistics are clear and the performances bear witness, he knew an effective recipe for winning ODIs. The Bangladesh ODI team, however, was already stable. Although not a big team, this edition has become a strong force since Hathurusingha’s first tenure and then Steve Rhodes’ coaching. After Domingo took over, he also took it forward.
