Jalal Ahmed Chowdhury, former coach of Bangladesh national cricket team and well-known sports writer, passed away at a hospital in the capital on Tuesday morning (Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un).

The former cricket coach breathed his last at Anwar Khan Modern Hospital.

Debabrata Pal, general secretary of Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB), confirmed the news.

Jalal, also known as ‘Cricket Guru’, was admitted to Anwar Khan Modern Hospital on September 1 for the first time due to shortness of breath and cough. He, however, returned home after being treated at the hospital. He was again admitted to the hospital on September 15 as his health condition deteriorated.

The renowned cricket coach was put on a ventilator on Friday at Anwer Khan Modern Hospital Limited in the capital following the deterioration of his health condition.

Jalal was a prominent cricketer in the 70s and 80s.
