The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has hired David Moore to serve as the head of programs for a two-year term. According to an official statement from the BCB, Moore will be responsible for planning and implementing strategies for the High Performance and Bangladesh Tigers programs with the goal of improving the performance of the national team.
David Moore, 58, has accepted a two-year contract with the BCB starting next month. He will be in charge of developing strategies and overseeing the implementation of the HP and Bangladesh Tigers programs with the aim of enhancing the national team’s performance. He will also be responsible for managing the development programs for coaches. Previously, Jalal Yunus, the chairman of cricket operations, had spoken about the role as a way to centralize player development. The role has been described by ESPNcricinfo as similar to a director of high performance.
“We won the ODI series against South Africa but we didn’t do well in the Test series. We won a Test in New Zealand. I don’t think it is enough,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Jalal saying at the time.
“We want to emphasise on Tests and T20s. We want to have a coordinated effort to strengthen this aspect of our game. We are thinking about bringing in a high-performance director for the overall planning of Bangladesh cricket‘s structure. All of these changes will bear fruit in one or two years,” he added.
“I’m very excited to be commencing my role as Head of Programs at the BCB. I look forward to working with the Head Coach, his coaching and support staff, and players to assist them to unleash their potential,” ESPNcricinfo quoted David Moore as saying.
“I am delighted to have been appointed to oversee and develop some very important programs that will provide opportunities for elite cricketers to perform in the international arena,” said Moore.
