Cape Town - The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) are apparently interested in the services of South Africa's assistant coach, Vincent Barnes to coach their national team.

According to the website cricinfo.com, this comes after the departure of Australian Jamie Siddons who led Bangladesh in a disappointing World Cup campaign.

Stuart Law, the interim coach of Sri Lanka, is also in the running but there are reports of his chances failing due to a disagreement over conditions with the BCB.

"We are still in negotiations with Stuart Law. We are interested in him but we have given him some conditions," BCB president Mustafa Kamal told the Daily Star. "If he accepts those, we'll go for him. It means our talks with him are not over.

"If it doesn't go through with Law, we will take a final decision on Barnes. If we take him, it is nothing to be worried about because we'll take a specialist coach for batting and bowling."

The BCB hopes to ratify the appointment of a new coach at their board meeting on Saturday, June 4, and Kamal said talks with Barnes were at "an advanced stage".

However, when contacted, Barnes only said: "I've been approached [by the BCB] and that's where it ended."
