“I am very clear about my role here,” Sriram, who is part of Royal Challengers Bangalore’s coaching staff in the Indian Premier League (IPL), said in his first media interaction since taking up the job on Thursday.

“My job is to basically work with the captain, the team director and the skill coaches. Bringing all three components together and use my T20 experience of IPL and Australia. And bring a strategy where we can use our resources properly.”

Sriram said it was a “fantastic move” to bring back star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan as the captain of the Twenty20 squad.

“I respected him as an opponent and it’s so heartening to see his view on the T20 game. It’s so modern, it was so refreshing, and we were on the same page.”

Bangladesh begin their Group B campaign against Afghanistan in Sharjah on Tuesday.
