Dhaka: Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad and legendary West Indian fast bowler Andy Roberts have been hired to inject some fire and pace into the Bangladesh cricket team ahead of the Asian Test Championship.Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Saber Hossain Chowhdury told AFP on Wednesday that Miandad and Roberts would help coach the national side in August."Miandad will look after the batting department, while Andy will be in charge of the bowling affairs," Chowdhury said.Cricket officials here are hoping the two former stars will help Bangladesh reverse its Tests losing streak since the country gained international Test status a year ago.Bangladesh has lost all its three Test matches so far, one to India at Dhaka and then a two-Test series in Zimbabwe.India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will contest the second Asian Test Championships from September, with the final slated for February.
