DHAKA (News Desk) – The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has offered former Pakistani fast bowler Aqib Javed the job of bowling coach with its national cricket team.

According to BCB president Nazmul Hassan, CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury made the offer to the Pakistani cricketer who said that he would respond by Tuesday.

The move comes in tandem with Bangladesh’s efforts to revamp its cricketer selection process for the national team.

Earlier, the bowling coach role of Bangladesh team had become vacant when Heath Streak refused to continue working with the Bangladesh Cricket Board in May this year.

Aqib Javed was previously working as a coach with the UAE cricket team. However, he resigned from the position in April this year, and joined Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as the director of cricket operations.
