DHAKA, May 27: Bangladesh have retained interim coach Courtney Walsh to oversee the national side in next month’s Twenty20 international series against Afghanistan, the cricket board said on Sunday.

Bangladesh have been without a head coach since Chandika Hathurusingha stepped down in October after three years at the helm.

Walsh has been called on before, leading Bangladesh to the finals of a T20 tri-nations series in Sri Lanka in March which they narrowly lost to India.

Afghanistan will host Bangladesh for the three-match T20 series in the Indian city of Dehradun from June 3 to 7. It will act as a warm-up for Afghanistan as they prepare for their first-ever Test against India in Bangalore from June 14. IANS
