Bangladesh are now touring the West Indies with the first of three ODIs taking place Sunday. The Tigers are aiming to bounce back after conceding a 2-0 defeat in the two-match Test series.
McKenzie is expected to join the Tigers in Guyana Tuesday, ahead of the second and penultimate ODI. McKenzie played 58 Tests, 64 ODIs and two T20Is for the Proteas. Following his retirement from international cricket in 2009, McKenzie twice performed his duty as South Africa’s batting consultant.
