Khaled Mahmud, the former Bangladesh captain, has been appointed assistant coach of the national side, while bowling coach Champaka Ramanayake's contract has been extended to March 2010.
Mahmud, who took charge of a ten-day training camp for the national side ahead of their successful West Indies tour in the absence of national coach Jamie Siddons, had been operations manager of the National Cricket Academy.
With the Asia Cup scheduled for next June, the Bangladesh board has agreed in principle to reschedule its tour of England also slotted for the same month. The two boards are yet to finalise the new dates.
The board extended the contracts of age-group selectors Ehsanul Haque and Sajjad Ahmed till June 30 2010 but will review fielding coach Mohammad Salahuddin's contract after the home series against Zimbabwe in November.
The agreement between the board and the national team sponsors Grameenphone will be extended to November 15, 2009 since its original expiry date fell between the Zimbabwe series.
