Former Sri Lankan cricketer Ruwan Kalpage arrived in Dhaka yesterday morning to join the Bangladesh cricket team as its new fielding coach.
Australian Corey Richards was the last fielding coach for the Tigers. He resigned earlier this year. Kalpage has been signed on a two-year contract.
The Sri Lankan had earlier worked as the head coach of the National Cricket Academy from 2008 to 2010. He had come to Bangladesh in February along with the Sri Lankan team and stayed here for a while.
After arriving, Kalpage went to his hotel just to leave his baggage and then came straight to Mirpur to get introduced with the players.
