Former India head coach Gary Kirsten, who was appointed by the Bangladesh Cricket Board as a consultant in the past and oversaw the selection of Steve Rhodes as head coach in 2018, took part in a virtual meeting of the Bangladesh national cricket team yesterday.
Members of the national squad had a few virtual meetings since the Covid-19 outbreak, with head coach Russell Domingo and his staff conducting the meetings. It was Kirsten who shared his experience with the Tigers' and the coaching staff yesterday.
The meeting lasted more than an hour where the former South African opening batsman shared his experience both as a player and also as a coach. Few of the cricketers relayed their queries to Kirsten as the players are gearing to get back to the field following a long break from cricket since mid-March.
"Mainly he (Kirsten) discussed on how we could return to cricket and the areas that we need to focus on and things like that. It was a pretty general meeting where we all took part in the discussion," one of the members of the national squad, requesting anonymity, told The Daily Star.
Following the long break, a number of national team members have already begun individual practice at BCB's facilities across the country, with more players showing interest to start training from August 8.
