Former South Africa batsman Neil McKenzie was named Bangladesh batting consultant in July this year and he had joined the Tigers in the tour of the West Indies in the same month

The BCB is looking to appoint a batting coach, specifically to look after the Bangladesh Test team. As reported by an English-based cricket website, already appointed batting coach Neil McKenzie's availability only for limited-overs cricket has made the board look for a batting coach for red-ball cricket.

BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury told ESPNcricinfo, an appointment is likely to be made soon.

"Neil is a white-ball batting coach up to the 2019 World Cup but we need someone for red-ball cricket. We preferred Neil to also look after red-ball cricket, but he is not available. Most of the assignments to the new members of the coaching staff we have given are World Cup targeted, but we are considering someone who can help out in red-ball cricket as well as do other work. We have asked our contacts to talk to coaches. Gary Kirsten is also in our assistance process," Cricinfo quoted Nizamuddin Monday.

Former South Africa batsman McKenzie was named Bangladesh batting consultant in July this year and he had joined the Tigers in the tour of the West Indies in the same month. McKenzie has been given the role till the 2019 World Cup.

Meanwhile, the board is to soon decide the fate of national spin bowling consultant Sunil Joshi. Former India left-arm spinner Joshi's tenure with the Tigers ends following the Asia Cup next month. The Bangladesh team in the six-nation Asia Cup, to be held in the UAE, will miss Joshi's service after he was roped in by the National Cricket Academy in India.
