Courtney Walsh to be Bangladesh's new bowling coach

Former West Indies captain and fast bowler Courtney Walsh has signed on to become the bowling coach of Bangladesh.

He has signed a 3-year contract until the 2019 World Cup to be the bowling coach of Bangladesh, replacing Heath Streak who resigned in May.

Walsh stated,



I'm thrilled to be joining the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) as their specialist bowling coach. Having watched Bangladesh cricket from afar over the years, they are a seriously talented bunch of players.



This will be Walsh's first major coaching role in international cricket since retiring in 2001. He has since worked as a cricket administrator in various roles including West Indies selector, mentor with Jamaica Tallawahs in the CPL, and as manager of the West Indies Under-19 team.

He further said, "Obviously the West Indies is my home but the chance to go in a new direction in coaching at the international level with a talented group, was one I couldn't let that opportunity pass."
