MNA Sports Desk: The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has appointed former England wicketkeeper Steve Rhodes as the National Team Head Coach.
Rhodes, 53, has agreed terms with the BCB which will see him in the Head Coach’s position up to the ICC World Twenty20 in Australia in 2020.
He will take over in his new role ahead of the Bangladesh team’s Tour of West Indies 2018. The Bangladesh side is scheduled to leave for the Caribbean on 23 June to play two Tests, three ODIs and three Twenty20 internationals, says a BCB media release.
Rhodes had appeared in 11 Tests and nine ODIs for England. He had a distinguished first class career in English county cricket for Yorkshire (1981-1984) and Worcestershire (1985-2004) where he scored 14,839 runs and recorded 1263 dismissals.
Following his retirement as a player, Rhodes served as coach (2005) and Director of Coaching (2006-2017) at Worcestershire. He was a member of the England coaching staff during the team’s Tour of Bangladesh in 2016.
