Russell Domingo has resigned from the post of the Bangladesh cricket team head coach.
Despite the dramatic one-wicket victory over India in the first ODI where Mehedi Hasan Miraz emerged as the saviour for Bangladesh with an unbeaten 39-ball 38 in a 51-run last-wicket stand with Mustafizur Rahman, there are questions over the performance of two of the senior players -- Mahmudullah Riyad and Mushfiqur Rahim.
Bangladesh’s conclusion to their ICC T20 World Cup journey also signalled the end of technical consultant Sridharan Sriram’s contract, but there is optimism in the Bangladesh Cricket Board that the former Indian all-rounder will continue although head coach Russell Domingo will return for next month's India series.
Bangladesh head coach, Russell Domingo, said that he considered not taking Mahmudullah Riyad initially for the Zimbabwe T20s was the wrong thing to do.
Russell Domingo is probably the only head coach in world cricket who has been given a break over his duty from T20 format in order to focus on ODI and Test cricket after the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) decided to apply drastic measures to change the fortunes of the Tigers in the shortest format.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon finally made clear that Russell Domingo will not be in charge of the Bangladesh T20I team.
Jamie Siddons, Bangladesh batting consultant, was there and so were other members of the coaching panel in Allan Donald, Shane McDermott and Rangana Herath. Team director Khaled Mahmud walked down the side line, passing on instructions but head coach Russell Domingo was nowhere to be seen yesterday during Bangladesh's preparatory practice match for the Asia Cup, played between Bangladesh Red and Bangladesh Green, at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
Striking performances were hardly on display in the practice game played among the members of the Bangladesh Asia Cup squad at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today. However, what stood out was how Shakib Al Hasan transmitted specific instructions towards the players on the day.
Three years after appointing Russell Domingo as head coach and one year since handing him a contract till 2023, the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB's) abrupt realisation that the South African's philosophy does "not suit the Bangladeshi brand of cricket" certainly raised a lot of questions.
Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo expressed his frustration with the way Shakib Al Hasan got out after an excellent start in the first T20I against the West Indies in Dominica on Saturday, which was eventually abandoned due to rain.
Bangladesh Test captain Shakib Al Hasan and head coach Russell Domingo came up with different findings following the Bangladesh top-order batters’ failure in Antigua Test, which the Tigers lost by seven wickets.
Bangladesh Test skipper Shakib Al Hasan said that all the batters in the side have technical problems and discussing such issues would be problematic for him in the sense that it would mean him becoming both coach and captain.
Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo urged Shakib Al Hasan to find a balance between his attack and defense with the bat after talking to the reporters after the end of the third day’s play of their first Test against West Indies at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Sunday.
On the back of a 1-0 defeat in the recently-concluded Test series against Sri Lanka and with a packed schedule ahead of Bangladesh, some of the members of the national team have taken a break ahead of their upcoming West Indies tour next month.
Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo mentioned that the tailor-made pitches in the past at home has hurt the Tigers' improvement in the long run and the South African also urged to create sporting pitches to enhance performance in the longest format of the game.
Bangladesh are yet to come into their own as a settled unit in cricket’s shortest format and one of the biggest barriers to achieving that is the absence of a power hitter.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) officially announced the appointment of former South Africa coach Russell Domingo as head coach of the Bangladesh national team during a press conference in Mirpur yesterday.
