Charl Langeveldt will join as full time pace bowling coach for the Tigers until the 2020 World T20I in Australia

Former South Africa paceman Charl Langeveldt has been appointed the new Bangladesh pace bowling coach following a board meeting at the BCB headquarter in Mirpur Saturday.

West Indies fast bowling legend Courtney Walsh was previously the Tigers' pace bowling coach. 

Walsh’s contract was until the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales and BCB has not extended his contract after Bangladesh finished eighth among ten teams in the World Cup.

Langeveldt will join as full time pace bowling coach for the Tigers until the 2020 World T20I in Australia.

“We were searching for a fast bowling coach and we had discussions with a few candidates. Ultimately we have selected former South Africa pacer Charl Langeveldt as our fast bowling coach. Everything has been finalized with him. He will join our team as a full time pace bowling coach until the 2020 World T20I,” informed BCB boss Nazmul Hasan during a press conference.  

Before joining Bangladesh, he was Afghanistan’s bowling coach. 

He has also been South Africa’s fast bowling specialist coach and Cricket South Africa’s High Performance fast bowling consultant.

The 44-year old Langeveldt has played 72 ODIs, six Test matches and nine T20Is for the Proteas from 2001 to 2010.
