Law to leave in early MayStaff Correspondent
Accepts two months of unpaid leave
Bangladesh’s national cricket team coach Stuart Law is set to leave the country in the first week of May after completing his nine-month stint with the Tigers, an official of the Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Sunday.
Law had taken over as the head coach of Bangladesh in July last year on a two-year contract, replacing compatriot Jamie Siddons but stepped down from the position recently citing family reasons.
The resignation of Law will take effect on June 30 but he was given an early clearance as Bangladesh have no international commitments until that period following the cancellation of Pakistan tour.
The reluctance of South Africa to host the Tigers in May also expedited his departure.
‘We had received his letter and decided to grant him the clearance as there are no activities of the national team,’ said Jalal Yunus, chairman of the BCB media committee. It was learnt that Law agreed to take two months’ unpaid leave to facilitate the BCB giving him an early clearance.
Stuart Law has taken up a coaching role with the Cricket Australia’s Centre of Excellence).
The BCB has already begun the process of finding his replacement with advertisements being placed in both local and international newspapers.
