The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has roped in former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer as the batting consultant of the age-level teams. It is understood that Jaffer was offered the Bangladesh job during his tenure as a player at Abahani Limited in the Dhaka Premier League 2019. Jaffer, in Abahani, had Khaled Mahmud as the team’s coach who is also the chairman of the BCB game development committee.

According to media reports, Jaffer decided to end his career as a player following the BCB offer and is now set to take charge in the end of June, this year. The former Indian national cricketer has inked a one-year deal with the BCB.

“Naveed Nawaz [of Sri Lanka] is the head coach of the U-19 team while Trevor Penney [of England] is the fielding coach. Champaka [Ramanayake] is taking care of the pace bowling of the High Performance unit and of the age-level teams. Jaffer can now be of help to the age level teams when needed,” said BCB game development committee manager Kawser Azam to a news portal on Monday.

The 41-year-old Wasim played 31 Tests and two ODIs for India and was playing First Class and List A cricket before picking up the Bangladesh job.

The Bangladesh U-19 has started to prepare themselves keeping the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup next year in focus. The young Tigers are to play a tri-nation series in England in July-August and tour New Zealand in September-October. In October-November, Bangladesh U-19 will host their Sri Lankan counterparts at home.
