Bangladesh sack coach Steve Rhodes after lacklustre World Cup

Bangladesh sack coach Steve Rhodes after lacklustre World Cup”

Steve Rhodes has left his role as Bangladesh head coach after their disappointing performance at the World Cup. "After receiving positive results from our security team we had chose to proceed with the tour Sri Lanka", BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury told Cricbuzz.

The Bangladesh team will fly on July 23 for the three-match series that will be played on July 26, 28 and 31 in Colombo.

He was contracted with Bangladesh until the ICC World Twenty20 in Australia next year but his inability to give the team the expected results appear to have cost him his job.

It means that Bangladesh will need to find a new head coach before their three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka kicks off later this month. "We are implementing it from now onwards and that means he is not available with us from the tour of Sri Lanka", Chowdury said. He said there was no decision on renewal of the contract of Indian spin-bowling coach Sunil Joshi.

"The board had a review following the Pakistan match (Bangladesh's last at the World Cup) in a meeting in London", BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury was quoted as saying by the ESPNcricinfo.

Bangladesh's bowlers struggled in the World Cup, leaking 2,473 runs in eight matches, an average of almost 310 runs a game.

Walsh replaced former Zimbabwean pacer Heath Streak in September 2016 on a three-year contract while Joshi joined last year. The only members of the World Cup backroom in Sri Lanka will be fielding coach Ryan Cook and analyst Shrinivas Chandrasekaran.
