Former South African opener Gary Kirsten has agreed to a short-term consultancy role with Bangladesh.
 
During his tenure, he is expected to assist the Bangladesh Cricket Board in finding a new head coach.
 
The appointment will be ad interim despite BCB's insistence on a more long-term role, given Kirsten's other commitments round the year.
 
After arriving in the country on Sunday (May 20) for a three-day visit, Kirsten spent a busy day in Dhaka.
 
He had a series of meetings with officials and players -- Mashrafe Mortaza, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal notably -- to prepare an internal audit required in order to recommend the next head coach of Bangladesh.
 
The post remained vacant since the unexpected departure of Chandika Hathurusingha.
 
Kirsten, in addition to finding a head coach, will also prepare a roadmap for Bangladesh leading into the all-important World Cup next year in England.
