Former Pakistan leg-spinner and World Cup winner Mushtaq Ahmed has been appointed Bangladesh National Cricket Team Spin Bowling Coach, confirmed a BCB media release on Wednesday.

Mushtaq succeeded Sri Lanka origin Rangana Herath, who left the Tigers tent after the ODI World Cup last year as the tenure of contract came to an end.

He will join the side ahead of the preparation camp later this month for the T20 series against Zimbabwe and will work with the Bangladesh team until the end of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and USA.

Mushtaq, 53, has performed the spin bowling coachs role with England between 2008 and 2014, West Indies in 2018-19 and Pakistan from 2020 to 22. He also held the position of the Pakistan teams bowling consultant from 2014 to 16.
On his new assignment, Mushtaq Ahmed said: "It is a great honour for me to be a part of the Bangladesh cricket team as a spin bowling coach. I am looking forward to the role and want to pass my experience to the players because they are very coachable and I always believe that they are one of the most dangerous teams around".

"They can beat anyone because they have the capability, the resources and the talent. I will try to instill that belief into them. I am very excited at the opportunity to work with the team," he added.
