Dhaka, July 28: With Bangladesh now gearing up to participate in the World T20 tournament next year, the country's cricket board on Sunday announced former New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori as its Spin Bowling Consultant.

The board also announced appointing former South African pacer Charl Langeveldt as full-time bowling coach.


The moves have been made just weeks after Bangladesh failed to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup in the UK.


The cricket board said Vettori, who retired from international cricket in 2015, has agreed to work with the Bangladesh spinners up to the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia.


He has been the Head Coach of Indian Premier League (IPL) side Royal Challengers Bangalore and Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL) team Brisbane Heat.


He will be available for around 100 days in his role with Bangladesh which combines preparation phase, series’ and tournaments including the Tour of India 2019, the Asia Cup and Tour of New Zealand in 2020. 


“This is a team on the rise and there is so much experience and potential. It will be a pleasure to work with the likes of Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam and the other up and coming youngsters which I am looking forward to with a lot of interest," the Kiwi cricketer was quoted as saying by the board's webiste.


“Spin bowling has been a traditional strength for Bangladesh. I hope to share my knowledge as a player and coach of the demands of modern day spin bowling in all versions of the game and help the bowlers make good intelligent decisions so that they can maximise their talents and skills," he said.


The 44-year old Langeveldt played 87 international matches for South Africa from 2001 to 2010.


Before joining Bangladesh he was Afghanistan’s Bowling Coach.
