Dhaka [Bangladesh], November 9 (ANI): Chandika Hathurusingha has reportedly tendered his resignation from the post of Bangladesh cricket team's head coach.

Now, Hathurusingha's future with Bangladesh seems to be uncertain, as the BCB has to decide whether to accept his resignation or not.

However, Hathurusingha and top officials at the BCB have not officially confirmed the news yet.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is mulling to rope in Hathurusingha as their head coach and is reportedly in negotiations with the 49-year-old regarding the same, ESPNcricinfo reported.

Despite Bangladesh's many improvements during his tenure, Hathurusingha is believed to be unsatisfied with the state of his present role.

Chandika, who has a contract with BCB that runs till the 2019 World Cup, had once already tried to resign in October last year, but his resignation was not accepted by the board and he was convinced to continue.

It should be noted that Bangladesh had made it to the quarter-final of the 2015 World Cup and the semi-final of the 2017 Champions Trophy under him.

Bangladesh had also defeated India, Pakistan and South Africa in home bilateral series, and had moved up the ODI rankings as a result.(ANI)
