Australian Shane Jurgensen has been appointed Bangladesh's bowling coach of the Bangladesh national team. Jurgensen, 35, has agreed to a contract which would keep him with the Bangladesh team until June 2013, and is expected to arrive in Dhaka on Sunday.

"Jurgensen is a vastly experienced bowling specialist," said BCB Chief Executive Manzur Ahmed. "He has also had an accomplished cricket career and his input would be extremely important for our cricketers."

Jurgensen was New Zealand's bowling coach between 2008 and 2010 and had also recently been a coach on New Zealand Cricket's high performance programme. He has coached for nearly 15 years at a number of different levels since his first trip to the United Kingdom with Horsham Cricket Club at the age of 21.

Something of a journeyman cricketer during his playing days in Australian state cricket, Jurgensen played for Western Australia and Tasmania before winning a place at his home state Queensland.

While playing for Tasmania, he was the first cricketer in history to take 10 wickets or more in a Sheffield Shield Final in March 2002, and was also the first to take a first-class hat-trick at the Bellerive Oval.

Its a good move from BCB. It good that BCB didn't include V.Prashad because Indian are not good at pace bowling. Bangladesh need one Spin bowling coach now. They can get it from Pakistan or India. I think that if Bangladesh wants spin coach, they should bring it from Pakistan or India .......because they are much better than others country in spain attack though Pakistan are good in both(Pace & Spin). BCB shouldn't forget to bring Foreign "CURATORS"...and Australia, S.Africa or England could be the good choice for that. Bangladeshi CURATORs are not good at this job. Good Luck! Bangladesh.
