BCB president Nazmul Hassan confirmed that the former Australia cricketer will work in a different capacity with local cricketers. Siddons played one ODI for Australia in 1988 and featured in 166 first-class matches till 1999.

“Hopefully in February he will arrive (and then) we’ll fix where he will work. If we feel he is needed in High Performance then he will work in that role. And if we feel if he is required in Under-19 setup, then he will work there or if he’s required in the senior national team then he will be deployed there,” Nazmul said.

Bangladesh are set to travel to New Zealand for a 2-Test series starting January 1. They recently played 3 T20Is and 2 Tests at home against Pakistan and ended up on the losing side on all the occasions.
