It is a massive honour to coach Bangladesh: Domingo
Bangladesh’s new head coach Russell Domingo will be here from August 21 and he will prepare his side for the upcoming one-off Test and the T20I tri-nation series.
After the World Cup, Bangladesh is all set to start afresh with almost a new looking coaching staff including the head coach. Former South Africa coach Russell Domingo will take over from August 21.
Domingo expressed his excitement to work with Shakib Al Hasan and co and he also appreciated the country’s passion for the game.
“I have been to Bangladesh six times and the nation is very passionate about the game. I will try my best to fulfil their wish. It’s going to be a great challenge working in the subcontinent.”
“Bangladesh have very talented players in Shakib-al Hasan, Mahmudullah and Mustafizur Rahman. Not only them, the team overall has much potential. I am excited that I’ll be working with them,” he said.
The newly appointed coach also said it’s an honour to guide the youngsters and he is hopeful to see the young players making it to the senior team.
“I have also seen their U-19 team. There are some exciting players and hopefully they will make the senior team in the near future. I’m keen to tap their talent and look forward to working with them. It is a massive honour.”
Bangladesh’s batting coach is Neil McKenzie while bowling coach is Charl Lengaveldt, guys who Domingo has already worked with during his tenure with South Africa. He is hopeful to form a great partnership with them once again.
“They know the system and how it works. I will talk to them and that will be of great help. The Test match against Afghanistan starts from September 5. We have to do well in the game,” he concluded.
