JOHANNESBURG – SA cricket coach Russell Domingo has been appointed head coach of the Bangladesh national side.
The appointment was announced by the Bangladesh Cricket Board on Saturday.
“Congratulations to Russell on this exciting new challenge in his career,” said Cricket SA (CSA) Acting Director of Cricket Corrie van Zyl.
“Russell has kept us in the loop throughout this process and, although we are sorry to lose his services, we wish him well and know that he will be yet another one of the coaches who have come successfully through our development system to coach at provincial or franchise level and end up at the very top.
“There are many names of coaches that spring to mind including Duncan Fletcher, Graham Ford, Mickey Arthur and Adrian Birrell. Gary Kirsten’s first significant coaching position was as a batting consultant to the Warriors when Russell was in charge there and he has gone on to be a World Cup winner.
