Bangladesh head coach, Stuart Law, has announced that he will be stepping down due to family reasons.
The 43-year-old, who represented Australia in 54 ODIs, took up the post as head coach in July last year.
Law, was given a two-year contract when he replaced his compatriot Jamie Siddons, but, the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) media committee chairman, Jalal Yunus, confirmed that Law handed in his resignation.
“It is a matter of great regret for us to inform you that our head coach Law has decided to resign from his post in June for family reason,” Yunus said.
Law’s high point as coach came in last month’s Asia Cup, where Bangladesh stunned India and Sri Lanka to reach the finals of the tournament, where they lost against Pakistan by a narrow margin of two runs.
With Law’s departure, Bangladesh fans will be hoping that the next coach can help transform the team into one of the best and most feared in the world.
