Ireland have opted to leave spin bowling coach Nathan Hauritz in Dublin for the first portion of their Bangladesh tour.

The former Australian international was appointed last year, taking up his role just over six months ago.

However, despite having a number of spin bowlers in their squads for Bangladesh, including the uncapped Matthew Humphreys, Hauritz is back in Dublin.

The move isn't thought to be finance related with CEO Warren Deutrom last week outling the 'financial challenges' facing the cash strapped organisation - who are relying on an up to five million ICC loan to get them through 2023.

Speaking after taking the role 41 year-old Hauritz said:

“The opportunity was too good to not even think about.

"I love discussing spin bowling from all facets, and to be able to do that in an international environment while travelling the world, how could you not want to do it?

Cricket Ireland didn't include details of the support staff for the tours of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, but did hint at rotation not just amongst the players.

That was believed to refer to Heinrich Malan missing some of the Sri Lankan tour, with Gary Wilson scheduled to take over at the helm in Galle.

Ireland take on Bangladesh in the second ODI on Monday after a chastening 183-run loss in Saturday's opener.
