Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have appointed Ottis Gibson as their new bowling coach with the former West Indies cricketer set to assume his responsibilities right on the cusp of the T20I series in Pakistan. Gibson will be replacing South African Charl Langeveldt in the coaching position as the Proteas pacer had handed in his resignation in December 2019.
Gibson, who possesses a wealth of coaching experience and was involved in the Cumilla Warriors camp in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), has signed a two-year contract with the board. The three-game T20I series between Pakistan and Bangladesh will commence on January 24.
"He brings in tremendous experience and has coached or played all over the world. He has also had the opportunity to observe Bangladesh cricket from close. I am sure he will be a very valuable addition to the Bangladesh Team's coaching group" BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury said following the appointment.
