Bangladesh appoint Sridharan Sriram as technical consultant for World Cup

they’ve just welcomed Sridharan Sriram back into the fold as the technical consultant for our beloved national cricket team. Why? Because the ICC World Cup is just around the corner, set to kick off in India on October 5th, and we want to make sure we’re in top form!

Our very own Khaled Mahmud, the team director, was thrilled to confirm this exciting development. You might remember Sriram from his stint as the go-to guy for the T20 World Cup last year. It’s clear the team holds him in high regard, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

Now, let’s dive into a little backstory. Last year, the Bangladesh Cricket Board decided to mix things up with some split coaching. Russell Domingo took charge of the Test and ODIs, but as fate would have it, things have evolved since then. Chandika Hathurusingha has taken the reins as the head coach across all formats, which marked the end of Sriram’s first run with us.

But here’s the kicker – our very own skipper, Shakib al Hasan, is a massive Sriram supporter. He was right there, backing Sriram during the T20 World Cup. And guess what? That support played a monumental role in the rise of Najmul Hossain, who became our shining star, bagging the title of the highest scorer for our country in the T20 World Cup. Sriram had Najmul’s back, against all odds, and that trust was handsomely repaid with some jaw-dropping performances.

So, folks, it’s safe to say we’ve got an incredible team spirit brewing, with Sriram back on board. Let’s unite, rally behind our team, and get ready to roar with pride as Bangladesh takes on the world in the upcoming World Cup
