Ottis Gibson to step down as bowling coach in Bangladesh

In a recent development, Otis Gibson decided not to renew his contract as a bowling coach for the Bangladesh national team. Gibson will end his two-year stint with Bangladesh on January 20 and join Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League as a fast bowling assistant and coach.

Former West Indies pacer Ottis Gibson joined Bangladesh as a pace bowling coach in 2020 replacing Charl Langeveldt. The race leader will end his two-year stay with the team on January 20 and has decided not to renew his contract. The series against New Zealand was his last assignment with the team and he is now set to step down from that role. Bangladesh Cricket Board Chairman of Cricket Operations Jalal Yunus confirmed Gibson’s decision to Cricbuzz.

Gibson played two tests choosing three wickets and 15 ODIs taking 34 wickets from 1995 to 1999. He scalped 659 wickets and scored 5,604 runs in 177 first-class games. He worked twice with England as a bowling coach after retiring from the game. Additionally, he worked as the head coach of South Africa from 2017 to 2019.

The former West Indies coach is now expected to join Multan Sultans as an assistant and fast bowling coach in the Pakistan Super League from January 27.
