Coaches start arriving for Tigers' camp

Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes reached Dhaka yesterday in time to join the Tigers' training camp for the upcoming Ireland tour, with the camp set to begin on April 22.

After reaching Dhaka, Rhodes went to the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur where he spoke to Bangladesh ODI skipper Mahsrafe Bin Mortaza during a Dhaka Premier League game.

“I have reached Dhaka today [Friday] and I will talk to the players and the team management,” Rhodes told reporters yesterday.

Tigers' bowling coach and West Indies legend Courtney Walsh had already reached Dhaka on Thursday and the Jamaican worked with pacer Rubel Hossain in Mirpur yesterday.

Trainer Mario Villavarayan is also working with two experienced cricketers in Mahmudullah Riyad and Mushfiqur Rahim, who are also recovering from injuries.

The remaining members of the Bangladesh team management, including batting consultant Neil McKenzie and fielding coach Ryan Cook, are expected to join the Tigers training camp on Monday.

The selectors have already announced a 15-member World Cup squad. Yasir Ali and Nayeem Hasan were included in the 17-member squad for the tri-nation series in Ireland comprising West Indies, Bangladesh and the hosts starting from May 7.

Bangladesh are expected to fly for Ireland on May 1.
