Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the appointment of Otis Gibson, the former South African bowling coach, as Tigers' new pace bowling coach. BCB came up with the announcement as Charl Langeveldt part away for the bowling coach role and went back to his native South Africa to take their bowling coach role.
Gibson was the head coach of Cumilla Warriors in the recently concluded Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL). BCB had been trying from the beginning to hire him as he was not in charge of a full-time coach with any country. Gibson also expressed his interest to become the Tigers' bowling coach during the BBPL. After negotiating for a long time he is going to take Tigers' new bowling role.
However, it is not yet known whether Gibson will join the team before the Pakistan tour.
