Siddons to arrive today

Update : 02 Feb 2022, 09:48

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) newly appointed batting consultant Jamie Siddons will arrive in Dhaka today.

Siddons has a two-year deal with the BCB and he personally announced his visit to Bangladesh via video message on social media a few days ago. 

‘He [Siddons] will leave for Bangladesh today [Tuesday] and will reach the country tomorrow [Wednesday],’ BCB’s cricket operations committee chairman Jalal Yunus told the media on Tuesday.

Although the BCB has not officially specified Siddons' position, Jalal stated that the Australian will initially work with national team players in preparation for the Afghanistan series, which is set to begin on February 23.

Bangladesh will play the visitors in a three-match one-day international series and two-match T20 international series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium and Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, respectively.

Tigers will begin training after the final of the present Bangladesh Premier League on February 18 in preparation for the Afghanistan series.

Siddons was Bangladesh’s head coach from October 2007 to April 2011. He was in charge when Bangladesh beat New Zealand 4-0 in the 2010-11 ODI series.

Bangladesh are scheduled to play a three-match one-day and two match T20 international series against the visitors at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium and Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram respectively.

With the Afghanistan series in mind, Tigers will start their training after the final of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League on February 18.
