Former New Zealand international Craig McMillan, who had been appointed Bangladesh batting coach for Bangladesh's upcoming tour to Sri Lanka, has informed the BCB that he was not able to undertake the role due to a loss in the family.
BCB CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury said, "Craig has communicated to us that his father has passed away recently and therefore it would not be possible for him to take up the batting consultant's position of the National Team for the upcoming tour at this moment of grief. We fully understand his situation. Our sympathies are with Craig and his family during this difficult time."
McMillan was appointed the batting consultant for the Sri Lanka tour after South Africa's Neil McKenzie stepped down citing family reasons.
