Former Sri Lanka left-arm spinner Rangana Herath has been appointed the Bangladesh cricket team's spin-bowling consultant until the T20 World Cup, while South Africa's former left-handed middle-order batsman Ashwell Prince will be their batting consultant during the upcoming Zimbabwe tour.

The Bangladesh tour will commence with a one-off Test (July 7-11) followed by three ODIs, which are part of the World Cup Super League. The three-match T20I series will commence from July 23.


Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal and India's Sairaj Bahutule were also reportedly in the running for the spin bowling coach's job. The two coaches will fly straight to Zimbabwe to join the Bangladesh side.
