DHAKA: Former India left-arm spinner Sridharan Sriram has returned to the Bangladesh set-up as the side’s technical consultant for the upcoming Men’s ODI World Cup. Sriram had been with the Bangla-desh team in this role from August 22 till last year’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
As per a report in ESPNCricinfo, Sriram, who played eight ODIs for India, will be joining the Bangla-desh team in Guwahati on September 27, ahead of the two warm-up matches before the main tournament begins. Sriram had earlier been a spin-bowling coach for the Australia men’s side for six years.
“Sriram has joined as the technical consultant. We will get a lot of technical support from him. He knows all the wickets in India. He can tell us about the weather conditions too. Very few of our players have played in India, so his input will be quite important,” Jalal Yunus, BCB’s cricket operations chair-man, was quoted as saying in the report. IANS
