Neil McKenzie has stepped down from his position of Bangladesh's batting coach. The South African let the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) know about his decision through a letter on Thursday.
McKenzie told The Business Standard, "Yes I've resigned, only reason being time away from the family. With Covid-19, 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."
He was appointed Bangladesh's white ball batting coach in July 2018. He was paid for each day's work. The 44-year old's final assignment with Bangladesh was the last home series against Zimbabwe.
The South African was praised by the likes of Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das many times and credited for their excellent run with the bat especially in white-ball cricket.
