Ryan Cook appointed as an interim coach of the Netherlands cricket team

Former fielding coach of the Bangladesh men’s team, Ryan Cook, has been named interim coach of the Netherlands cricket team, the Koninklijke Nederlandse Cricket Bond (KNCB) said on Saturday.

Cook temporarily replaces Ryan Campbell, who was hospitalised after suffering a cardiac arrest while he was on a holiday with his family in England last month. Campbell was discharged from the hospital earlier this week and is currently on the road to recovery.

Cook takes over the Netherlands team with a wealth of experience on his side. He has previously worked as an assistant coach with Big Bash League outfit Hobart Hurricanes, South Africa A and South Africa Under-19. He also worked as a fielding coach with Bangladesh national team until November 2021 and is the head coach at the Gary Kirsten Cricket Academy in Cape Town, according to ICC.
