McKenzie steps down as Bangladesh batting coach

Dhaka, Aug 21 (IANS) Former South African batsman Neil McKenzie has resigned from his post as Bangladesh’s batting coach due to family reasons.

“Yes, I’ve resigned, only reason being time away from the family. With Covid, the schedule, and doing all formats, the time away from my young family would be too much,” McKenzie told ‘ESPNcricinfo’.

“I’ve loved being a part of the Tigers and will always have a soft spot for Bangladesh cricket and the great guys I’ve been fortunate to work with,” he added.

As per the report, the 44-year-old, who was appointed as Bangladesh’s white-ball batting consultant in July 2018, wrote to the country’s board (BCB) about his decision on Thursday.

Under McKenzie’s watch, Bangladesh won the ODI series against West Indies and Zimbabwe at home, as well as winning the Ireland tri-series in May last year.
