Neil McKenzie Resigns as Bangladesh Batting Consultant

Bangladesh white-ball batting consultant Neil McKenzie has decided to leave his post to have more time for his family. 

Bangladeshi batting coach Neil McKenzie cites the need to stay home with his family during the COVID-19 crisis. With that, McKenzie, who has been the national team’s batting consultant since July 2018 has officially decided to vacate his post.

In his statement, he says, ‘Yes, I’ve resigned, only reason being time away from the family. With COVID, the schedule, and doing all formats, the time away from my young family would be too much. I've loved being a part of the Tigers and will always have a soft spot for Bangladesh cricket and the great guys I've been fortunate to work with’. 

In response to McKenzie, BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury said, ‘He (McKenzie) has been a much-admired coach here And I wish to thank him for the work he has put in with the Bangladeshi batsmen, especially in white-ball cricket where the progress has been evident. On behalf of the BCB, I wish him the very best’. 

‘We will try to go for a batting consultant across format and if we can find anyone in the meantime, we will then finalize it’, Chowdhury added.

McKenzie has worked with the national side on their tour of India last year and was last assigned to coach the team on their home series against Zimbabwe. To learn more about cricket, check out Betwala.
