Default New Bangladesh bowling coach finalised - BCB chief

BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said that the board has finalised a bowling coach for the Bangladesh team. The name of the individual cannot be revealed yet due to an obligation but Hassan said that he would arrive in the country at the end of August.

The board had been looking for a new bowling coach since Heath Streak quit in May. Aaqib Javed had turned down the offer in June, and since then, the BCB had put up a shortlist of candidates.

"The good news is that our search is over," Hassan said. "We know who we will take [as bowling coach]. But, unfortunately, because of some obligations, we cannot announce his name. We are hoping he will come to Dhaka any time in the last week of this month. But since he is working somewhere, we shouldn't be making any announcements. Once his contract is over, we will announce it together."

Meanwhile, Hassan informed that former India left-arm spinner Venkatapathy Raju will arrive in Dhaka later this month as a spin consultant for the High Performance programme. He also said that Javed, who is currently in Dhaka for a seven-day stint as the HP's pace consultant, has been asked to take a look at the progress of the bowling actions of Taskin Ahmed and Arafat Sunny, who were suspended by the ICC for illegal bowling actions in March.

Let the speculations begin!
Believe in Allah & have faith in your abilities - success then is a consequence..not an incident.
