Dhaka, June 6: Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president zmul Hassan has said former Pakistan pacer Aaqib Javed has been approached to become the team’s bowling coach. The right-arm fast bowler’s decision is awaited, reports “We have contacted Aaqib Javed. Our CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury told me we will get a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer by the day after tomorrow,” Hassan said in a press conference on Sunday.

Former Zimbabwe allrounder Heath Streak, who had held the post since May 2014, revealed his decision not to extend his contract with the BCB via email towards the end of last month. BCB’s cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan had earlier said they had set their sights on four bowlers - Sri Lanka’s Champaka Ramayake and Chaminda Vaas, Aaqib Javed and India’s Venkatesh Prasad.

The BCB has a backup plan if Javed turns down the offer. Javed ended a successful term at the United Arab Emirates in April. IANS
