Pakistan's Aaqib Javed refuses Bangladesh bowling coach offer

Former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed has rejected Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) offer of the position of the national team's bowling coach.

BCB's cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan stated,



Aaqib has informed us that he is not going to come. We are not too worried about it. He was not our only option. We also have plans B, C, etc. We will now hold talks with the others.




He further added, “The truth is that the job becomes difficult for both sides if we name (a favourite). You will know as soon as we finalise something.”

Former Zimbabwe all-rounder Heath Streak was Bangladesh’s bowling coach but he was not interested in extending his contract with the team.

Akram had earlier said they had set their sights on four bowlers for the position: Sri Lanka's Champaka Ramanayake and Chaminda Vaas, Aaqib Javed and India's Venkatesh Prasad. With Javed’s response, it remains to be seen if the other options will work out.
