Russell Domingo Appointed Bangladesh Head Coach

first_imgDhaka: Russell Domingo was on Saturday appointed as the head coach of Bangladesh for the next two years. He replaces Steve Rhodes whose tenure was not extended by the Bangladesh Cricket Board following the team’s eighth-place finish at the recently concluded World Cup in England and Wales. “We have decided to pick Russell Domingo as he will be available. There were other candidates but we wanted someone who could be available for us and certainly, he has got the experience,” Cricbuzz quoted (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan as saying. Domingo, who earlier served as the South Africa coach, will start his stint with the Bangladesh team from August 21. His first assignment will begin with the lone Test against Afghanistan from September 5, which will be followed by an ODI tri-series involving Zimbabwe as well.
