Bangladesh have hired former Pakistan Test cricketer Saqlain Mushtaq as a spin consultant, ahead of their tour of Zimbabwe later this year.

Saqlain had worked with the squad previously, but missed the series against Sri Lanka, and will rejoin the setup on Wednesday.

“We will only call Saqlain when the need arises,” said Bangladesh Cricket Board operations chairman Enayet Hossain Siraj.

“We will not ask him to stay with us for a prolonged period. He will work for 100 days in a year, and this will start with the series against Zimbabwe.”

The veteran Mushtaq clinched 496 international wickets between 1994 and 2004 before ending his first-class career four years later.

Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will meet for two Tests, three ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals. The first Test gets underway at the Harare Sports Club on 17 April.
