Legendary former New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori has been named the new Bangladesh spin bowling coach following a board meeting at the BCB headquarter in Mirpur Saturday.
The 40-year old Kiwi replaces India's Sunil Joshi, who was appointed in August, 2017.
Vettori's first assignment with the Tigers will be against India at the end of this year and his contract runs until the 2020 World T20I in Australia, and during this time he will work for at least 100 days with the Bangladesh side.
“We had options for full time coach, but our preference is former New Zealand captain and spinner Daniel Vettori. He will be available for us just prior to the India series in November this year. He will work until the next World T20I in 2020. Actually we wanted him full time but he is not available. So he will work for 100 days for us between this term,” said BCB boss Nazmul Hasan at a press conference.
Vettori has played 113 Test matches, 295 ODIs and 34 T20Is for New Zealand.
He was head coach of the Royal Challengers Bangalore from 2014 to 2018.

In July 2019, he was appointed as the head coach of the Dublin Chiefs for the inaugural edition of the Euro T20 Slam cricket tournament.
Vettori said he was excited at the prospect of guiding Bangladesh’s spin department.
“I have followed Bangladesh cricket for a very long time and have some great memories from touring the country,” said Vettori.
“This is a team on the rise and there is so much experience and potential. It will be a pleasure to work with the likes of Shakib al Hasan, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam and the other up and coming youngsters which I am looking forward to with a lot of interest.
“Spin bowling has been a traditional strength for Bangladesh. I hope to share my knowledge as a player and coach of the demands of modern day spin bowling in all versions of the game and help the bowlers make good intelligent decisions so that they can maximize their talents and skills.”
