Russell Domingo.

Bangladesh have appointed South African Russell Domingo as their new head coach.

The 44-year-old has agreed a two-year deal and is set to arrive in Dhaka on August 21 to take charge, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced.

The former Proteas coach succeeds Steve Rhodes, who Bangladesh parted company with following this summer’s World Cup.

Domingo, who was most recently in charge of South Africa A, said: “It is a massive honour to be appointed the head coach of the Bangladesh national team.

“I have followed Bangladesh’s progress with keen interest and I am extremely excited to assist the team in reaching the goals that they are capable of.”

BCB president Nazmul Hassan revealed the board picked Domingo because of his availability.

“We also sought a full-time coach… (Domingo) said he was very keen to work with the boys and didn’t want any holiday breaks. These are the reasons why we found him suitable,” Hassan said.

“He has a wealth of experience and we have been very impressed with his passion and coaching philosophy,” he added.
