Former English wicketkeeper-batsman Steve Rhodes has been appointed as the new head coach of the Bangladesh team. BCB president Nazmul Hasan informed this to the media Thursday, the appointment coming after a long eight-month search.

The position of the head coach went vacant after Sri Lanka’s Chandika Hathurusingha resigned last November. 

The BCB has appointed Steve until the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. Steve reached Dhaka Wednesday night and met the BCB high-ups in Dhanmondi a day later.

“Steve’s planning and thinking regarding the team met our expectation for which we could make an easy and quick decision,” said Nazmul to the media.

Steve said he will be looking to use his vast experience in club cricket when he begins his Bangladesh job officially.

“I want to use all my experience to take Bangladesh cricket forward,” said Steve.

The Bangladesh job will be Steve’s first international assignment. He will begin work when the Tigers tour the West Indies this month, the bilateral series serving as preparation for the 50-over World Cup in a year’s time. 

“We have the World Cup in less than a year. I believe I have a good idea of the England conditions which I will be able to share with the Bangladesh team,” said Steve.

Born in Yorkshire, Steve represented England from 1989 till 1995 and played 11 Test matches and nine ODIs. In the domestic circuit, the former stumper-batsman played 440 first-class matches and 477 List A games.

Steve worked with Worcestershire County Cricket Club from 2006 to 2017 as a coach and team director. Bangladesh Test and T20I captain Shakib al Hasan during his stint with the county in 2010 had played under Steve.
