Former Proteas batsman Ashwell Prince has been appointed as Bangladesh’s batting consultant on a permanent basis until after the 2022 World Cup.
Prince was initially roped in only for Bangladesh’s tour of Zimbabwe in July, which concluded this past Sunday, with the understanding that he would return to coaching the South African domestic side Cape Cobras.
However, Prince has quit from his position as head coach at Newlands-based Western Province Cricket Association and will now replace Englishman Jon Lewis as Bangladesh’s batting guru on permanent basis.
Prince will link up with countrymen Russel Domingo (former Proteas coach) and Ryan Cook, who are currently serving as head coach and fielding of the Bangladesh national team, respectively.
West Indian Ottis Gibson, who had also previously coached the Proteas, is Bangladesh’s bowling coach.
