Former New Zealand first-class cricketer Rhys Morgan will join Bangladesh's coaching staff ahead of the three-match Test series against New Zealand, soon after the Tigers complete their three-match ODI series against the same opposition on February 20.
Morgan will work with the members of the ODI squad who will stay behind in New Zealand for the Test series. Morgan is expected to have a short-term general coaching role.
“As four to five cricketers will remain in New Zealand after the ODI series while the rest of the Test squad reach New Zealand, we have decided to include Morgan as an additional support staff to work with the players during that time. It's a very short-term appointment of 10 to 12 days,” BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury told The Daily Star yesterday.
The first of three Tests against the Kiwis will start from February 28 in Hamilton.
