Newly appointed Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes reached Dhaka Tuesday morning and officially took charge of the job. The former England wicketkeeper-batsman will get down to business with the Tigers Wednesday as the national Test squad for the West Indies tour are set to report at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur following the Eid-ul-Fitr vacation.

Steve, who visited Dhaka earlier this month and landed a job with the BCB, visited the facilities at SBNCS guided by cricket operations committee manager Sabbir Khan.

The 20-member Bangladesh squad, including the stand-by players, for the two-match Test series against the West Indies are scheduled to report at the home of cricket Wednesday. The cricketers will have practice sessions under their new coach Steve till Friday and will Dhaka for the Caribbean Saturday.

Former English cricketer Steve was appointed as the new head coach of the Bangladesh team after a long eight-month search by the BCB. The position of the Bangladesh head coach went vacant after Sri Lanka’s Chandika Hathurusingha resigned last November.

Born in Yorkshire, Steve represented England from 1989 till 1995 and played 11 Tests 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.
