Shaun Williams to remain in charge of Bangladesh for twenty20 World Cup.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), still struggling to find out the successor of Dave Whatmore, have appointed Shaun Williams, BCB game development manager, as interim Bangladesh coach for the up-coming twenty20 World Cup to be held in South Africa.

Williams acted as the interim coach in the recently concluded Sri Lanka tour in which Bangladesh were whitewashed in both Test and ODI series. Sarwar Imarn, who acted as the deputy of Williams for the Sri Lanka tour will also remain in charge.

The decision was taken in the first meeting of the newly formed committee at Navana Tower office of BCB on Wednesday afternoon. Ahmed Sazzadul Alam, member of the BCB executive committee, made the decision public in a news conference after the meeting.

Bangladesh are placed in group A along with host South Africa and West Indies, and will start their campaign against West Indies on 13 September in Johannesburg.
