2021-06-02 7155

Bangladesh Cricket Operations Chairman, Akram Khan has informed “Cricbuzz” website that Bangladesh Cricket Board will probably appoint Sri Lankan former Super Left Spinner Rangana Herath as the Spinner Coach of Bangladesh National Team.

Eventhough Bangladesh Cricket had earmarked Sairaj Bahuthule of India and Saheed Ajmal of Pakisthan for this position, they had given the preference to Si Lankan Super Spinner Rangana Herath.

Bangladesh Cricket Operations Chairman , Akram Khan has further informed that there are discussions going on between Rangana Herath and Bangladesh National Cricket for this new appointment.

Former Spinner Coach , Daniel Vector, who hails from New Zealand, was unable to continue due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This led to the Bangladesh Cricket Board roping in local Coach Sohel Islam to fill the role during the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka.

“Herath is one of the candidates and he is certainly a front-runner for the post. We would try our best to finalize it before the Zimbabwe tour as Australia will be touring Bangladesh just after the Zimbabwe tour with New Zealand and England following suit,” 

Akram Khan further clarified to “Cricbuzz”

“lankanewsweek” extends its warm congratulation to Rangana Herath
