BD seek Australian inside knowledge for Tests

Bangladesh have set their sights on winning both upcoming Tests against Australia and should get some inside knowledge from former Aussie leg spinner Stuart MacGill, according to coach Chandika Hathurusingha, reports AFP.

MacGill is close to joining another Australian, Mark O'Neill, on the Bangladesh backroom staff for the tour by the world number three-ranked nation.

Australia are due to arrive on August 18 for their first Test series in Bangladesh since 2006, if a pay dispute between their players and Cricket Australia is resolved in time.

The two Tests will be followed by a Bangladesh tour of South Africa for two Tests and three one-day internationals in September-October.

Bangladesh are looking to build on a year in which they recorded their maiden Test wins over England and Sri Lanka, before reaching the Champions Trophy semi-final in June.

"We have made some progress in Test cricket. Now we have the game-plan of winning in the sub-continent. We want to win the two Tests against Australia," Hathurusingha said.
