Langeveldt to step down


Charl Langeveldt informed the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) that he will not continue as the national team’s pace bowling coach yesterday, less than four months after taking up the job.

BCB cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan confirmed Langeveldt’s communication, telling The Daily Star last night: “He has communicated that he does not want to continue because he has a good opportunity at home [in South Africa] and wants to work there. He has an offer from the South Africa national team.”

The former South African pacer was appointed on a two-year deal as the pace bowling coach on July 27 this year after the end of the World Cup. He replaced Courtney Walsh, whose contract ended with the World Cup in England this summer.

In his short time as the pace bowling coach, the 45-year-old oversaw the pacers in the home Test against Afghanistan, the home T20I tri-series against Zimbabwe and Afghanistan and the tour of India, which consisted of three T20Is and a two-Test series.
