The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will accord a warm reception to its former national team coach and West Indian legend Gordon Greenidge on Monday (May 14) in a city hotel.
Veteran West Indies batsman Gordon Greenidge, under whose guidance Bangladesh won the ICC Trophy in 1997, who was given the prestige of an honorary citizen in Bangladesh, will come here on a five-day tour to meet his former colleagues of Bangladesh cricket team. BCB Working Committee Chief Enayet Hossain Siraj confirmed the news on Saturday, local media reports said.
In his honor, a dinner party will be hosted at Sonargaon Hotel, on Monday (May 14). Former and present BCB cricketers will attend the dinner.
In 2001, Greenidge gave a reception to the Bangladesh ‘A’ team in Barbados when the Tigers were playing Boosta Cup in West Indies.
Greenidge became the coach of the Bangladesh cricket team in 1997 and was dismissed in 1999. Being a first-class Barbadian cricketer, he played Tests and ODIs for 17 years for West Indies.
