Former Bermuda batsman David Hemp named Bangladesh’s new batting coach

Sri Lanka's Chandika Hathurusingha is currently the head coach of the Bangladesh cricket team.  

In yet another change in coaching setup, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have roped in Bermuda’s David Hemp as their batting coach, while former Kiwi all-rounder Andre Adams was named the bowling coach on Monday. Hemp had been associated with the board since 2023, and served as the High Performance Head Coach.

Their first assignment will be the upcoming series against Sri Lanka, in March 2024, with both the coaches joining on a two-year contract.
