Ex-Suffolk bowler Richard Pybus appointed as Bangladesh coach
FORMER Suffolk bowler Richard Pybus has been appointed as the new head coach of Bangladesh.
Pybus, who played club cricket for both Sudbury and Halstead in the Two Counties Championship, has been handed a two-year deal.
The 47-year-old, who lives in South Africa, replaces ex-Essex batsman Stuart Law, who stepped down from the post last month due to family reasons after just nine months in charge.
Pybus said: “I am delighted at the opportunity of coaching Bangladesh. 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.”
