Asia Cup 2022: Former Indian all-rounder Sridharan Sriram has been named the national team’s coach for the 2022 Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates and the T20 World Cup in Australia by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

A report in “The Daily Star” newspaper quoted a BCB director, who confirmed Sriram’s appointment and said, “Yes, we have chosen Sriram up until the World Cup.”

“As we are moving forward with a fresh mindset, the new coach will be seen from the Asia Cup onwards. And since the T20 World Cup is our main target. He (a new coach) will not get time to adapt if he is not recruited from the Asia Cup.

“Many may say that there is not much left for the Asia Cup. However, as I said, our main focus is the T20 World Cup,” he added.

Between 2000 and 2004, Sriram played eight ODIs for India. He also long worked as Australia’s assistant and spin-bowling coach.

Sriram was given the duty of becoming a spin bowling coach in 2016 by the former Australian coach Darren Lehmann.

The 46-year-old recently left that position to concentrate on his role with Royal Challengers Bangalore of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

However, the BCB official added that South African Russell Dominigo would remain in control of the Test team.

“Domingo would continue his role in guiding the Test team, for now. As we have a Test match against India in November .”
