Bangladesh’s newly-appointed Twenty20 international technical consultant, Sridharan Sriram, said that he was very clear about his role in the Bangladesh team.

Russell Domingo, the regular head coach of Bangladesh, is assigned to work with the Test and ODI teams only, while Sridharan has recently been appointed  as a technical consultant for the Bangladesh T20 squad till the T20 World Cup.

“I’m very clear about my role here,” he said at a press conference in Dubai, UAE, on Friday. “My role is to get the resources together. There are skill-coaches with the team and the captain and the team director. I will have to work with all of them and get them together.”

Sriram, the former Indian all-rounder worked with at least two IPL teams and with Australia national team. He believes his experience of working with the high-grade T20 teams will stand him in good stead in his new assignment.

He also said it was a fantastic move from BCB to appoint Shakib Al Hasan as the captain of the Bangladesh T20 team.

“My work will be to bring all the three components together and use my T20 experience of IPL and Australia and bring a strategy where we can use our resources properly,” Sriram added.

Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan in their first Asia Cup match on August 30, and in their second and last group stage match, they will lock horns with Sri Lanka on September 1.
