Former Sri Lanka batsman Thilan Samaraweera has been appointed as Bangladesh batting consultant for the upcoming home series against England.

This will be his second stint in this role with an international team, having already worked as batting consultant to Australia earlier this year.

BCB president Nazmul Hassan said on Friday that Samaraweera would be available only for one series, but added that the contract could be extended.
