Written by Sumit Seth

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Tuesday extended it’s Under-19 World Cup winning coach Naveed Nawaz for next three years. He was appointed the head coach in 2018 and helped Bangladesh clinch the title earlier this year by beating India in the final in South Africa. BCB also extended the contract of Under-19 strength and conditioning coach Richard Stonier until 2022.

“We had taken the decision earlier that we will continue to work with those who were involved with our Under-19 World Cup squad considering they have done a great job,” BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury said.

Naveed, a Sri Lankan who is now settled in Australia, played a solitary Test and three ODIs for Sri Lanka and has been actively involved in the coaching structure since retiring as a player in 2004.

He was head coach for the Sri Lanka U-19 side from 2009 to 2014 and has also worked as a batting coach for the Sri Lanka Emerging Players Squad in 2014-15.
