Cape Town - West
Indies legend Courtney Walsh is delighted to be involved with
Bangladesh cricket as the national team bowling coach after a lack of
opportunities at home.
The 54-year-old has not been involved in any official permanent
capacity with the West Indies team before but remains open to taking up a
position with them in the future.
Walsh told the Jamaica Gleaner: "I have got three years down there
with them (Bangladesh) so I don't know what is going to happen after
that, but I am not going to say 'yay' or 'nay'.
"I am happy to be where I am and I am happy to be able to have the
experience to sort of round off something I have always wanted to do or
"If the chance comes to represent the West Indies at some point in
time in that capacity, it's something I will seriously think about, but
at this present time, where I am is where I am."
Walsh is thrilled to be in the Tigers set up and is eager to
learn all he can and impart the knowledge he has onto his charges.
"A lot of people were saying that it's (Bangladesh) a spin
country and I shouldn't be there, but I am happy to be there, and play
my part, and I think that once they play to their true potential.
"(I) will just play my part as best as I can and hopefully reap some success."
Bangladesh will be taking on New Zealand in three ODIs, three T20Is
and two Tests with the first clash a fifty over game being played on Boxing Day.
