Samaraweera named Tigers batting consultant
Bangladesh Cricket Board has appointed Thilan Samaraweera as a batting consultant for the upcoming England series. BCB president Nazmul Hasan said on Friday that he will be available only for one series but the contract could be extended. He also said they are looking for a spin bowling coach, who could be appointed before Bangladesh’s tour of New Zealand later this year. This will be his second stint in this role with an international team, having already worked with Australia earlier this year. “Thilan Samaraweera, the batting specialist, has been hired for the England series as a consultant,” Hasan said. “We will see if we want to extend his deal. We are still looking for a spin-bowling coach and get the best among those available. We hope to appoint him before the New Zealand series.” Meanwhile, the fielding coach Richard Halsall has been promoted to the position of assistant coach after Ruwan Kalpage was sacked last month for not turning up to duty on time. Halsall was part of the major shake-up in the coaching staff that came about in mid-2014, when head coach Chandika Hathurusingha was also appointed.
