The Bangladesh Cricket Board has said the national team’s strength and conditioning coach Mario Villavarayan, who was scheduled to conduct the training camp of the 30-member Bangladesh preliminary squad from tomorrow, will not be available due to personal reasons.
“Due to some personal reasons Mario Villavarayan is unable to join the training camp from [tomorrow]. However, he will be joining the camp very soon. The other foreign coaching staffs including coach Chandika Hathurusingha is expected to arrive in Bangladesh in the first week of August,” said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury.
Villavarayan, who is currently in Sri Lanka on holiday, was supposed to arrive in Bangladesh ahead of the training camp. In his absence, trainer Iftekharul Islam will conduct the Tigers’ strength and conditioning camp from tomorrow.
Meanwhile, BCB’s Australian physio Brett Harrop has resigned from his job for “family reasons”, according to the board.
