The Bangladesh Cricket Board is all set to renew a contract with former T20 consultant Sridharan Sriram as the former Indian all-rounder met the BCB high officials in Dhaka on Friday.

Sriram had a meeting with BCB President Nazmul Hassan Papon at the President’s Box of the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium during the opening match of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League between Sylhet Sixers and Chattogram Challengers.

It was learnt that Bangladesh T20 skipper Shakib Al Hasan was also present during the meeting and Sriram is likely to have a contract extension until the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to be held in West Indies and USA.

Sriram confirmed to The Daily Sun that he would leave Dhaka today.

The 46-year-old was previously appointed by the BCB last year to look after the T20 side and he worked from the Asia Cup T20 in UAE in August-September till the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in October-November.

Bangladesh played 13 T20Is under Sriram where they won four and lost the remaining nine matches.

Bangladesh were finally able to break their T20 World Cup main event losing streak under Sriram as they beat Netherlands and Zimbabwe in the Super 12 stage of the last ICC T20 tournament.

The BCB President Nazmul also expressed his satisfaction with Sriram’s overall performance.
