Ryan Cook unavailable in SL series

Bangladesh fielding coach Ryan Cook will not be available in the upcoming three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, informed a Bangladesh Cricket Board official on Sunday.

“He will be on leave from May 11 to be with his wife,” BCB cricket operation chairman Akram Khan told The Daily Sun.

“His wife is expecting and there is some complication so he wanted a leave and we granted it. We are expecting to have him with us during the Zimbabwe tour,” he added.

Cook is the second foreign coaching staff to skip the home series against Sri Lanka as earlier bowling coach Ottis Gibson went back to London from Sri Lanka after the two-match Test series.
