Bangladesh appoint Richard Pybus as head coach
Wednesday 30 May 2012
Bangladesh have appointed Richard Pybus as their new head coach on a two-year deal.
Pybus, who has an option to remain until the 2015 World Cup, returns to international coaching for the first time since 2003 when he led Pakistan.
The 47-year-old replaces Stuart Law who stepped down from the post in April due to family reasons after just nine months in charge.
His is due to meet up with the Tigers squad ahead of their tour of Zimbabwe next month.
"I am delighted at the opportunity of coaching Bangladesh," Pybus was reported as saying on http://www.cricinfo.com.
"I am looking forward to getting busy with the boys.
"We have an active schedule ahead of us and for me the next few months will be about building relationships with the players and the coaching staff and ensuring that the progress made up to the Asia Cup continues."
England-born Pybus has twice been in charge of Pakistan, at the 1999 World Cup, before taking up the position again in 2003.
He has since settled in South Africa where he has coached the Titans and Cape Cobras, either side of a brief stint with Middlesex.
Pybus left the Cobras in March after he had been linked with the South Africa job last year.
