Former Zimbabwe skipper Tatenda Taibu is all set to join Bangladesh Krira Shikha Protishtan, the country’s lone sports institute, as a cricket coach.

BKSP cricket advisor Nazmul Abedin told The Daily Sun on Tuesday that there is a high possibility of his appointment as a cricket coach in BKSP, an institute that is considered to be the breeding ground of many national cricketers like Shakib Al Hasan and Mominul Haque.

“We are in talks with him and there is a possibility that he will join us (BKSP) as cricket coach but nothing is finalised yet,” said Nazmul.

“We are hopeful about him and we feel it will benefit our cricketers considering he was a very hardworking cricketer during his time and hopefully he can guide his charges in the same manner,” he added.

Taibu, who retired from international cricket in 2012, represented Zimbabwe in 28 Tests, 150 ODIs and 17 T20Is and scored over 5000 runs for his country as a wicketkeeper-batsman.

Meanwhile, BKSP is also in discussions with former Australia’s HP coach Andy Cottam to join Taibu as their cricket coaches.
