Russell Domingo, the new head coach of Bangladesh National Cricket Team was surprised on the cricket centric crowd in Bangladesh. Presence of lot of journalist and camera persons in a cricket related press meet amazed him.
"I think it's the seventh time I am in Bangladesh, the first time I was here during the Under-19 World Cup in 2004, which was a long time ago," Domingo said journalists on Wednesday during his first press meet.
"The thing that strikes me each time is exactly this, the number of people that are interested in Bangladesh cricket. I'm from South Africa where, if you get to a press conference for a big game, there may be eight to nine reporters. I've never seen this many reporters in my life. I got to the airport and there were so many cameramen, it was crazy," he stated.
"So the passion has always struck me about Bangladesh cricket. You always see people dressed up in Tiger suits, the supporters at the ground, there's definitely massive support for the team. That's probably what attracted me to this part of the world," Domingo ended.
