Hit For Six!

Bangladesh have appointed Sridharan Sriram as their technical consultant in the shortest format till the ICC Men's T20 World Cup later this year.

Sriram, who had been working with the Australia men's team until recently as the Assistant coach, had shifted his focus to IPL after six years of association with Cricket Australia. 

The former India cricketer initially teamed up with Australia as a consultant before he became a part of the coaching staff. Sriram has been appointed with an eye on the ICC Men's T20 World Cup two months later in Australia, where he has plied his trade for a while now.

"We have appointed him because he has got experience of working in IPL while the World Cup is in Australia where he has worked for a long time," BCB president Nazmul Hasan said. "His tenure will be from the Asia Cup until the T20 World Cup."

Hasan also stated that the role of Jamie Siddons, the batting coach who was appointed earlier this year, could also change.

"He also wants that [to work with the development] but unfortunately he is travelling with the team and nothing is happening because he cannot develop in such a short span of time,'' he said.

"Jamie will certainly go in the World Cup but we don't know whether we will send him to Asia Cup. If we don't send him in to Asia Cup, then we will be going without a batting coach, while if he goes then we will not have development in this period so there are lot of issues we are working on."
