Vettori to accompany with Bangladesh’s HP Unit in Sri Lanka
Bangladesh spin coach and former New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori has been working as a consultant for Bangladesh’s spin bowlers since last year. Since then, the contract with the BCB has changed and the nature of his work has changed. The scope of work of Vettori, who is in charge of strengthening the spin department of Bangladesh, is increasing this time.
The BCB confirmed the deal with Vettori in July last year. According to the agreement, the former Kiwi cricketer will work with the Bangladesh team for 100 days in different terms. In the beginning, he was supposed to work with the spin department of the Bangladesh national team, but later the responsibility of the bowlers of the pipeline fell on his shoulders.
Accordingly, the former New Zealand captain shared his experience with spinners Aminul Islam Biplob, Hasan Murad and Tanvir Islam before corona. This time, the scope of work of the Bangladesh team’s upcoming tour of Sri Lanka is increasing.
The BCB is taking the national team as well as the hyperperformance team on the tour of Sri Lanka. A fleet of 45 to 50 cricketers. The number of spinners in the two squads is not less. The Tiger Board wants to make good use of Vettori in this camp which is going to start in Sri Lanka.
‘As it is mentioned in the contract that he (Vettori) will have to work with spinners who are not just in the national team,” BCB High Performance unit chairman Naimur Rahman told Cricbuzz.
”During the camp, he will be looking after our spinners in the training session (High Performance Unit), but when the national team begins their Test series, it won’t be possible because at that point the HP squad will be separated from the national team. Probably, there will be seven to eight spinners involved with the national team and the HP unit, and the coaching staff can plan out on how to work with them during that time frame,” he added.
