- Mackenzie will work as an ODI and T20 batting coach
Sports reporter Chandiko Hathurasingheh left the job of head coach of the national team of Bangladesh in November last year. Since then, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) had great difficulty with the appointment of the new coach. Because coaching and support staff have left many behind. The problem has been resolved to join Gary Kirsten as a management consultant. The British Steve Rhodes as head coach and Ryan Cook in South Africa as field coach and former batting coach Neil McKenzie has been appointed head coach by the BCB. Until now, Rhodes took part in the work, but the other two did not start their duties. Earlier, the BCB said, McKenzie was planning to employ batting coach specially trained for the test by using only one day and twenty-five format coaches. BCN chief executive officer (CEO) Nizamuddin Chowdhury Sujon said on Monday.
In 2009, McKenzie ended the international career. He played 64 ODI & # 39; s and 58 tests in South Africa and played only two games of Twenty20. However, the BCB wants to keep it as the best coach of the one-day and twenty-twenty formats. Because he played 155 matches in domestic matches with 18 half centuries and 298 in the list & # 39; A & # 39; matches. And the recent situation of Bangladesh in the test is a very delicate situation. In particular, the violent image of the batting was on display last October in South Africa and recently in the West Indies tour. In the first Test of the Caribbean against Bangladesh, in a shameful inning of 43 points, Bangladesh folded. Runs 202 runs per innings in the past 12 months! 200 runs can not pass in the last 3 tests. And by reviewing it, it has become clear that special care is needed for Test cricket. Many people think that the problem of handlers in Bangladesh is ground-based disability. However, almost the same batsmen played ODI & # 39; s and T20 & # 39; s and they are still in two formats. The proof is that the team from Bangladesh won both series by showing the West Indies tour.
At the moment there is a separate batting coach for the English national cricket team in different formats. Mark Ramprupak is batting coach for Graham Thorpe for ODI & # 39; s and Twenty20s and Tests. The BCB also plans to move in that direction. CEO Nizamuddin said: "The hitting coach, who was taken for our one-day and Twenty20 team, will work until the World Cup 2019. The board now has a batting coach for the test team, we also liked Neil for test cricket, but he has no Time for itself The majority of the current coaching management that we have offered is aimed at building the World Championship in the next one-day event, but now we are considering another person who can provide cricket for our batsmen in Test. on the other side, we've told the communication media we've discussed with coaches, and, by the way, Gary Kirsten is there for our collaboration.
