He lost his father recently. BCB Chief Executive Officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury informed the media about the tragic incident. He said,

“Craig has communicated to us that his father passed away recently and therefore it would not be possible for him to take up the batting consultant’s position of the national team for the upcoming tour at this moment of grief.”

“We fully understand his situation. Our sympathies are with Craig and his family during this difficult time,” the press briefing further added.

Bangladesh will face Sri Lanka later this month to prepare for the three-match World Test Championship series which will be Bangladesh’s first assignment since the Covid-19 pandemic. Although the series is still uncertain, BCB has very little time to replace McMillan for the forthcoming assignment.

Craig McMillan was appointed as the batting consultant of Bangladesh last month replacing Neil McKenzie.
