Saqlain likely to be Bangladesh coach

Bangalore, Jul 11: Former Pakistan offspinner Saqlain Mushtaq could become Bangladesh's spin bowling coach as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is in talks with Saqlain.

"Yes, it's accurate that I've been approached by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for the role of spin bowling coach," Saqlain was quoted as saying by PakPassion.net on Tuesday.

"Bangladesh cricket has a lot of potential and hopefully if appointed I would love to work with Bangladeshi cricketers at all age groups. It will also be great to work with former Pakistan head coach Richard Pybus. I have a lot of respect for Richard who is an excellent coach," he added.

"I'm honoured that they have approached me; it would be a good opportunity and great challenge for me. I have not signed a deal yet to become the Bangladesh spin bowling coach but my agent is in discussions with the BCB."

The 35-year-old played 49 Tests for Pakistan, taking 208 wickets. He also played 169 ODIs and finished with 288 scalps.
