Pybus handed Bangladesh job
Thursday 31 May 2012
The Englishman Richard Pybus was yesterday appointed head coach of Bangladesh for the next two years.
"Hopefully, he will join us by the first week of June," said Nizamuddin Chowdhury of the Bangladesh Cricket Board.
Pybus replaces the Australian Stuart Law, who stepped down last month citing family reasons after nine months in charge. The BCB said Pybus would be given an initial two-year contract with an option for an extension up to the World Cup in 2015. Pybus coached Pakistan's national team twice in 1999 and 2003.
