Bangladesh Cricket Board announced on Thursday that they have appointed former South African batsman Nic Pothas as the assistant coach of the Bangladesh team.

The 49-year-old has reached a two-year agreement with the BCB and will join the squad in the UK next month for the three-match ODI series against Ireland.

“I am honoured to commit to the Bangladesh National Team. The depth and array of talent running through Bangladesh is exceptional and I believe we have some exciting years ahead of us,” Pothas said in a statement on Thursday.

In a coaching career that spans over a decade, Pothas had worked as the head coach of West Indies (2018-2019) and Sri Lanka (2017-2018). He had also performed the roles of assistant coach and fielding coach of the West Indies side and had been the lead fielding coach of Sri Lanka. Prior to joining Bangladesh, Pothas was the wicketkeeping coach of Hampshire County Cricket Club. A right-handed batsman in his playing days, Pothas had appeared in three ODIs for South Africa and had made over sixteen thousand first class and List A runs.
