Former Bangladesh national team cricketer Aftab Ahmed has been offered a job as the coach of Atlanta Fire, a domestic cricket team in the United States. He has been in the role of the coach in Bangladesh for a long time since his retirement in 2014.
Aftab himself confirmed the matter to BDCricTime on Saturday. Although Aftab has not yet officially joined, he is going to accept the team's offer positively.
Aftab said,
"I got an offer from a club in the United States. Not finalized yet, but will be finalized soon. I hope I can share my cricket knowledge there.”
Atlanta Fire was founded in 2018 by a Bangladeshi named Mohammed Hasan Tarek. The team has been playing domestic cricket in the United States regularly since its inception. Earlier, during his visit to Bangladesh, Tarek said that cricketers and coaches from Bangladesh would be given a chance in US cricket.
The Atlanta Fire will have Aftab coaching from June to September. It goes without saying that there is not much activity in domestic cricket in Bangladesh at this time. Aftab wants to take this opportunity to gain coaching experience.
Aftab, 36, played 16 Tests, 85 ODIs, and 11 T20Is for the Bangladesh national team. Aftab, who last played domestic cricket in 2014, ended his playing career and started coaching. Aftab is currently the coach of Dhaka Premier League (DPL) team Legends of Rupganj, National Cricket League (NCL) team Chittagong Division and national shadow team Bangladesh Tigers.
