McMillan quits before taking up charge as batting consultant
Former New Zealand batsman Craig McMillan, who had been appointed Bangladesh batting consultant for the tour of Sri Lanka 2020, cannot join Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to undertake the role due to a loss in the family.
BCB in a press release issued on Saturday (Sept 19) said McMillan was not able to undertake the role of batting consultant for the tour of Sri Lanka due to the death of his father.
BCB CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury said: “McMillan has communicated to us that his father has passed away recently and therefore it would not be possible for him to take up the batting consultant’s position of the National Team for the upcoming tour at this moment of grief. We fully understand his situation. Our sympathies are with Craig and his family during this difficult time.”
