Russell Domingo Steps Down as Bangladesh Head Coach

Jalal Yunus, Chairman of the Cricket Operation Department of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), has confirmed that Russell Domingo has resigned from his role as the Head Coach of the Bangladesh National Cricket Team.


Domingo was appointed as the head coach of Bangladesh in 2019, shortly after Steve Rhodes was released from his role following the team’s disappointing performance at the World Cup 2019 in England.


Jalal revealed that on Tuesday, he had sent a resignation letter with immediate effect and without giving any reason for his decision, but expressing gratitude for the support bestowed upon him by the board.


“He wished the Bangladesh team a better future,” Jalal said.


Doming had been under immense pressure for his lack of success as the coach of Bangladesh in the T20Is.


Consequently, he was dismissed from his role as head coach of the T20 team before the last Asian Cup.


Jalal announced that Bangladesh will appoint a new coach for both Tests and ODIs ahead of the upcoming home series against England starting on March 1 in Dhaka.
