Hassan said the chances of Mahmud taking over were the "highest" even as they continued to hunt for a foreign coach. "If we don't get a foreign coach before the Sri Lanka series, then we will look at a local coach," Hassan was quoted as saying by espncricinfo.
"We have Khaled Mahmud Shujon; the possibilities of him taking over are highest," Hassan added. Bangladesh are scheduled to host Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in an One-day International (ODI) tri-series in January. The position of the Bangladesh head coach fell vacant when Sri Lankan Chandika Hathurusingha stepped down during the South Africa tour last month.
