Bangladesh appoint Rhodes as head coach

Dhaka, June 7: The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Thursday unveiled former England wicketkeeper Steve Rhodes as the national team’s new head coach.

Rhodes, a former Worcestershire coach, said he was proud to be offered the job as well as being recommended by Gary Kirsten, in what will be his first stint as an international head coach. His contract will run until the end of the World T20 in 2020.

“I am proud that Gary Kirsten, a very respected cricketing figure, put my name forward. The temptation straightaway was to say, ‘yes, of course’. It didn’t take long at all to show my interest to coach this wonderful country.”

Rhodes said he hoped that his overall experience in cricket would help the Bangladesh team. IANS
