LAHORE: Former Pakistan bowler Aaqib Javed Monday has refused to accept the post of Bangladesh’s bowling consultant.
Aqib Javed, who stepped down as the UAE coach in April, is also the director of cricket operations with Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League.
Earlier BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said that the board is in talks with Aqib Javed for the post of Bangladesh’s bowling consultant.
“We are in touch with Aaqib Javed,” Hassan said. “Our CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury informed us that we will get an answer from him – yes or no – by day after tomorrow (Tuesday). We are also discussing if we can talk about the alternatives.”
The position became vacant when Heath Streak decided not to continue as the bowling coach last month.
So far, the BCB has been in discussions with three other candidates.
