Russell Domingo steps down as Bangladesh head coach


In a recent development, the head coach of the Bangladesh cricket team, Domingo Russell, has submitted his resignation to the Bangladesh Cricket Board. Domingo informed the BCB of his decision on Tuesday and the chairman of cricket operations, Jalal Yunus, also indicated that the board wanted to leave Domingo.

Bangladesh seem to be going through a structural change after the recent Test loss to India in the home series. Head Coach Rusell Domingo resigned from his post on Tuesday after informing the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) of his decision. A statement by the chairman of BCB’s cricket operations, Jalal Yunus, immediately after the Dhaka test also underscored that the board also wants to leave Domingo.

“We need a coach who has an impact and an influence on the team. You will see changes soon. We are trying. We want a very strong team who can play a quality and very competitive team. We came close to beating India but it’s hard to beat this team. We beat England and Australia on this ground, but India are a tougher team in these conditions,” Yunus told reporters after the match.

Moreover, Yunus confirmed that Domingo had sent his sign-up letter leaving the head coach job vacant.

“He (Domingo) sent in his resignation letter yesterday (Tuesday) and it is effective immediately,” he told Cricbuzz on Wednesday.

Domingo began his tenure as head coach in September 2019 as the successor to Steve Rhodes. During his tenure, the team won the T20I series against Australia and New Zealand on home soil, recorded their first Test victory in New Zealand and an ODI series victory in South Africa.
