Former New Zealand batsman Craig McMillan has been appointed Bangladesh’s batting consultant for the Tour of Sri Lanka 2020, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) confirmed on Tuesday.
In his decade-long international career, McMillan scored over 8,000 international runs across all formats.
Following his retirement as a player, McMillan performed the role of New Zealand’s batting and fielding coach from 2014-2019, reports UNB.
He also has coaching experiences with Canterbury, Middlesex and Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kings XI Punjab.
The Tigers are scheduled to tour Sri Lanka to play three Test matches in October-November this year. McMillan will join the team during its pre-tour camp in Sri Lanka.
This series was initially slated to be played in July-August, but due to the Covid-19 situation, both the boards decided to play it in a new schedule. It will be marked as Bangladesh’s first three-match Test series in six years.
