Mushtaq, who performed the role during the tour of Zimbabwe earlier this year, will continue the 100-day contract established with the Bangladesh Cricket Board for 2013.

Saqlain, meanwhile, will conduct a three-week clinic for a group of current and emerging West Indies spinners from 3 September.

The Punjab-born Mushtaq enjoyed a prolific international career between 1995 and 2004, securing 208 wickets in 49 Tests and 288 in 169 ODIs.
