Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has been roped in by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) as the batting consultant for its academy in Mirpur. The development was confirmed by a senior BCB official.

“Jaffer has been given one-year contract from May to April 2020 as a batting consultant of BCB academy in Mirpur. Initially, he will look after the age group teams of U16 to U19 at the game development unit of the academy. Later on, he may be roped in as the batting consultant of the BCB High Performance Unit (NCA equivalent),” Kaisar Ahmed, Manager, BCB Game Development, told PTI.

It is also understood that the 41-year-old Jaffer, a domestic stalwart, will spend six months in a year with the young batsmen of Bangladesh.

Jaffer, who played 19 seasons for Mumbai before representing Vidarbha, was instrumental in guiding them to two consecutive Ranji Trophy titles, which has been acknowledged by the players of the team.

Jaffer has played 31 Test matches for India and scored 1,944 runs with the highest score of 212. He has also featured in two ODIs.
