Bangladesh Cricket Board has appointed Albie Morkel as the new power hitting coach

Albie Morkel has been chosen as Bangladesh Cricket Board’s power-hitting batting coach for the ODI series against South Africa. Morkel is the second South African to be appointed by BCB in the last two weeks, following Allan Donald’s appointment as fast bowling coach earlier this month.

Bangladesh’s coaching staff is undergoing a transformation, with Jamie Siddons being appointed as batting coach. Bangladesh is appointing a power-hitting batting coach for the first time. Bangladesh has struggled with their power-hitting in limited-overs cricket, and this has been seen as their weakest link.

“He is a very experienced campaigner and we feel that our batters will be helped with his coaching,” said BCB cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus.
