Richard McInnes' first assignment as head coach of Bangladesh's National Cricket Academy will be to oversee a week-long training camp starting August 8. Ten cricketers have been selected to take part in the camp.
Batsmen Fazle Mahmud, Tasamul Haque and Myshukur Rahman, allrounders Mahmudul Hasan and Sabbir Rahman, left-arm spinners Shaker Ahmed, Sanjamul Islam, Nazmul Islam, leg-spinner Tanveer Haider and seamer Kamrul Islam Rabbi are the available cricketers in the country since Bangladesh A and the Under-19s side are currently playing abroad.
All ten selected cricketers were part of the Academy squad that toured South Africa last year under McInnes' predecessor Ross Turner.
"He [McInnes] will work with ten players of the Academy who are currently available for a week," BCB's game development manager Nazmul Abedin said. "Later when others from the A team and the Under-19 team arrive, whoever is selected will join the Academy squad."
The Academy's first assignment of the year will be a four-day game against the touring West Indies High Performance team from September 16 to 19 in Khulna's Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium. The visitors will also take on Bangladesh A in another four-day match, three one-day games and two Twenty20s thereafter.
