Former South African cricketer turned high profile coach Gary Kirsten joined Bangladesh players in a virtual meeting Wednesday. 

Former India head coach Kirsten had worked with Bangladesh Cricket Board as a consultant in the past and suggested the board to sign Steve Rhodes as head coach back in 2018.

With no cricket on the field due to Covid-19 pandemic, national team cricketers and those in pipeline have been kept busy over virtual meetings with the coaching staff, and with fitness work at home. 

It was only last month that a handful of cricketers took the opportunity to set foot into BCB facilities for individual training under special arrangement.

Kirsten during the meeting that lasted more than an hour shared his experience with Bangladesh cricketers and the coaching staff.


A few cricketers participated by asking questions to the South African. 

The cricketers are gearing up to return to the field in higher numbers as BCB sets to start second phase of individual practice sessions from Saturday at four venues across the country.

“He (Kirsten) discussed how we could return to cricket and the areas we need to focus on, the preparation, mental setup among other things. It was a general meeting where we all took part in the discussion,” said a member of the national fold requesting anonymity to Dhaka Tribune.

Indication of Bangladesh returning to cricket is strong as BCB has been in regular discussion with Sri Lanka Cricket over making the national team and BCB high-performance team tour the island nation in October. 

It is understood that Bangladesh will get to practice as a unit only once they are in Sri Lanka as the Covid-19 situation in Dhaka concerns the board.
