The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Monday named Upul Chandika Hathurusinghe as the national team’s Head Coach.

The former Sri Lanka Test batsman has agreed a two-year term. Hathurusinghe is expected to take over the head coach’s responsibility ahead of the three-match ODI series against India next month.

Hathurusinghe replaces Shane Jurgensen, who quit after the ICC World Twenty20 that Bangladesh hosted in March-April.

BCB president Nazmul Hassan said the experience and vast knowledge of the new head coach will be extremely beneficial for the Bangladesh players: “We had been on the lookout for someone of similar profile to take over the role of the national team coach. He has a strong background in coaching international standard teams and his understanding of different conditions and cultures will be very helpful.”
