"They (BCB) have got some time to think about who they are going to go with. It'll be a great job," he added.

Tait, one of very few pacers to have clocked over 160kmph, had worked with the Afghanistan team recently as their bowling coach.

He also followed Bangladesh cricket for quite some time and seemed to have impressed with the bowling of young fast bowler Shoriful Islam.

"In general Bangladesh so many good young players. They could become great players. Shoriful is an aggressive left arm bowler. He is going to be extremely important in this team. He has played enough cricket now to know what he is doing. So, I'm looking forward to working with him.”

"Bangladesh have got quite a decent depth of young players, even fast bowlers. The next 5-6-7 years are gonna be exciting for cricket here in Bangladesh," he added.

Shoriful was an integral cog in Bangladesh's historic Test win against New Zealand earlier this month. Even though the hero of the Test was Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful gave the side initial momentum with his 3-69 in the first innings of the first Test at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. The pacer was also amongst the wickets in the second New Zealand Test as well.


"That (New Zealand) tour was good for Bangladesh in general and certainly for him (Shoriful). He attacks, he bowls on the stumps. You can see he is enthusiastic and loves what he is doing," Tait remarked.

BCB cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus told the reporters that they are happy to know that Tait is interested to work with them but added that they will see how he fare in the BPL before taking a call.

"We are glad to know that he is interested to work with us. He (Tait) has come here to work with Challengers in BPL and we will see how he fares there”, said Jalal.
