Former Proteas wicketkeeper Nic Pothas has been appointed Bangladesh assistant coach.
Pothas has previously worked with Sri Lanka and West Indies in international cricket – and Hampshire and Middlesex in English county competition.
“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,” said Pothas.
He will work alongside former Proteas fast bowler Allan Donald at Bangladesh. Donald is Bangladesh’s fast-bowling coach.
Pothas played three ODIs. All three were against Pakistan and New Zealand during the Singapore Challenge in 2000.
In 2012, he played for Greece in division two of the European Championship.
