Venkatesh Prasad

After the exit of Heath Streak from the post of bowling coach of the Bangladesh cricket team, the Bangladesh cricket Board (BCB) has started the hunt for the new bowling coach and it is reported that they have also finalised three probable for the job viz Venkatesh Prasad, Allan Donald and former West Indies legend Courtney Walsh. These are the three players whose name have been finalised for the job.

Among these three Courtney Walsh is leading the race.

All the veteran players were quite successful during their playing days.

Out of these Venkatesh Prasad and Allan Donald have experience of coaching at international level. It was Venkatesh Prasad who nurtured Indian bowlers during their successful T20 world cup run in 2007 whereas Donald too has long experience of coaching the South African team. Also this year Royal Challengers Bangalore reached the final of IPL under Donald’s guidance.

The West Indies legend Courtney Walsh was serving as the selector of West Indies team and his term as a selector has just ended after the Test series against India.

Earlier the Bangladesh Board offered this job to the Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed but he refused as he was the director of cricket operations of the franchise Lahore Qalandars, a participant team in Pakistan Super League.

The Bangladesh team needs a coach as soon as possible as they are set to play an ODI series against Afghanistan in September. Post this series England team will land on this soil to play a Test and ODI series before proceeding to India.
