Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has appointed Australian David Moore as Head of Programs which is akin to director of coaching. The 58-year old has been roped in on a two-year term, the BCB said in a press release today.
Moore will be responsible for planning, devising strategies and implementation of the HP and Bangladesh Tigers programs to ensure that these programs directly benefit the National Team’s interests while working on the development programs for coaches.
“I’m very excited to be commencing my role as Head of Programs at the BCB. I look forward to working with the Head Coach, his coaching and support staff and players to assist them to unleash their potential,” Moore was quoted as saying in the BCB media release.
“I am delighted to have been appointed to oversee and develop some very important programs that will provide opportunities for elite cricketers to perform in the international arena,” the media release quoted Moore as saying.
The idea to appoint Moore was to ensure a more seamless movement of players from HP and other sides for the national team cause.
