Stuart Law has resigned as Bangladesh coach after nine months in the job, citing family reasons. He will stay on till the end of June, when his contract expires.

His decision to quit comes less than a month after Bangladesh reached the final of the Asia Cup, widely seen as one of their finest achievements.

"It is with great regret and a heavy heart that today I announce my stepping down as the head coach of Bangladesh," Law said.

He said he will move back to Australia after two and a half years in the subcontinent, which included a coaching stint with Sri Lanka. "Living away from the family and not seeing people growing up, I think we all understand that family comes first," he said. "Cricket has been a huge part of my life but over the years I have realised that there is nothing more important than the family and if they are not happy then I am not happy and something had to give."

Law had taken over as national coach last July, and though the initial results were disappointing - including losses to Zimbabwe - the home season ended with Bangladesh upsetting India and Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup, before losing the final in a last-ball finish.

The BCB did not give any indication of who would replace Law. However Dean Jones, who had a brief stint in the Bangladesh Premier League as technical director of Chittagong Kings, announced his presence in the fray. "Yes the Bangladesh Cricket Board has asked me if I would be interested to coach the national team.. Considering options," he tweeted.

Law's decision appeared to have come as a surprise to those in the team. Tamim Iqbal said he was completely unaware about Law's intentions after the Asia Cup. "I'm completely taken by surprise. But family comes first," Tamim told ESPNcricinfo.

Bangladesh media committee chairman Jalal Yunus said the board understood Law's decision. "As he (Law) has said the family was his priority and that should be the case for all of us," Yunus said. "We are sorry to see him go, especially at a time when under his guidance the Bangladesh team is doing really well and showing good consistency."

with due respect to Saurav Ganguly, I don't think he would be any good addition to BD cricket. I still think BCCB should get back Jimmy Siddons or someone with same credentials as J Sid.Don't wanna get into debate with his track record as a coach. But I reckon he was the man who has changed the BD dressing room environment. BCCB needs a foresighted management. Once the proper professionalism grows within the team & within the players, results'll be reflected on the yard. Needs lot of grooming. Need to produce lots more batsman and heaps of pace bowlers. BD team won't go anywhere without a proper pace bowling attack. All the best with the PAK tour.

@adis26 and Praxis;

I am sure you will get emotional if other countries refuse to visit your country to play cricket...and yes I admit that there was a security lapse and I am sure we can do much better this time....so thank you Bangladesh!! and keep coming!!

Posted by Saif_I_Khan on (April 16, 2012, 18:27 GMT)

Some comments from my Pakistani brothers are disrespectful. Bangladesh does not play cricket in courtesy of PCB. If PCB had cast its vote in favour of Bangladesh from political motive that shows the UNPROFESSIONALISM of PCB. We fairly know what happened with Bangladesh's test status achievement. Noway PCB can't claim its 'patent' on BD test status. It was success of BCB's cricketing diplomacy if they could convince enough boards to vote for them.

Posted by Happy_AusBang on (April 16, 2012, 18:15 GMT)

We are seeing a lot of this "family" stuff as excuse these days. Politicians in western countries started this and now coaches have caught the malaise. People should consider their options seriously before taking on the job. Certainly it is not funny when people change their minds in the course of a few months.

BD should try to get Ganguly. There should be some emotional attachment to the team as well in addition to professionalism and skill. Ganguly I think has all three, and he won't have to travel very far from home. He could visit family every weekend if he wanted. Let's persuade him.

Posted by Praxis on (April 16, 2012, 17:28 GMT)

@alimu24, getting emotional will not help anyone, yes we are thankful for the support Pakistan gave us to achieve test status. But this isn't about simply returning the favor, we are learning about the current situation in your country from newspapers, channels & internet & its not very convincing. And majority of Bangladeshi people(yes, follow the comments on internet & its true) aren't too happy about this tour. Also we aren't very proud about the fact that BCB president supports this tour for his own intentions. Its true that our team is the lowest ranked team & we do need as much exposure to competitive cricket as possible but safety of our cricketers comes first.

@Saabir786..ohh plzz dont think about ganguly as bangladesh coach...ganguly is ours and indias only!! :)

Posted by saabir786 on (April 16, 2012, 16:41 GMT)

saurav ganguly,mohsin khan,wasim akram,greg chappel,tom moddy or dean jones should be the contender forn next coach job.saurav ganguly to me is the real candidate for coach job he made india in to the world beaters

Posted by Sakthiivel on (April 16, 2012, 16:10 GMT)

Quitting is always better that Touring Pakistan . Its obvious, still he made BD a good side.

Posted by Sehwag_Is_Ordinary on (April 16, 2012, 16:02 GMT)

IAN PONT or MOHSIN KHAN- these two men are appropriate for the head coach job

Posted by alimu24 on (April 16, 2012, 15:47 GMT)

It boils my blood to hear people say that Pakistan is not safe...especially a country like Bangladesh which should thank us for its entry to test cricket!!! There are places more unstable, insecure and absolute no go zones (Sri Lanka and India) in the world but no one would refuse to go- !!!

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 15:46 GMT)

Guys... I think this decision is really not related to Pakistan tour at all. Cause he'll b there till june!!! He didn't tell anything to resign now. So it could b his family issue as he says.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 15:32 GMT)

NOOOOOOOOOO! Dean Jones has been approached to replace Stuart Law! Tamim had issues with him in BPL. Why him? Bad omen for Bangladesh cricket.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 15:22 GMT)

i dont think its the issue of touring pakistan. tour schedule time is end od this month but he is staying till june of this year.......

Posted by fr600 on (April 16, 2012, 15:17 GMT)

LOL @ Sourav Ganguly as a coach.

Posted by dadvoc on (April 16, 2012, 15:06 GMT)

To all those who are citing Pakistan tour as the real motive behind his resignation. FYKI Bangladesh's tour to Pakistan is scheduled at the end of April, and for that time Law would still be coaching BD as his contract is due to expire by June. So this can't be the reason. And it really maked me sad when people jumpi to conclusions without giving a thought.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 14:45 GMT)

i can't believe it!....but it's a smart decision....he didn't want to be a part of the pakistan tour....only for BCB,we've lost the coach who could have changed the team....bangladeshi players should also quit pakistan tour.

Posted by tanveer131 on (April 16, 2012, 14:36 GMT)

If Pakistan tour is the issue then why didn't he say it out loud. All who are claiming it show some evidence for your baseless talks.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 14:27 GMT)

Stuart Law said last month that if BD tour Pakistan he wont go with the team.Its completely because of Paktour he is leaving

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 14:20 GMT)

How about Rashid Latif as the next Bangladesh coach? ;) Mushfiq and boys will improve their Urdu as well.

Posted by randikaayya on (April 16, 2012, 14:17 GMT)

Law has served a full contract then. Just that he will not renew it. Can't fault him for that, he takes decisions based on his and his families best interest

Posted by Tokai69 on (April 16, 2012, 14:09 GMT)

It's a big blow for BCB and cricket in Bangladesh as a whole. The time when Law just get the results of his coaching out of this team, he resigned. BCB could find another coach for sure, but this will push the team in the back-foot for a year! This is definitely the lacking of BCB for not foreseeing the tour in PAK!!

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 14:06 GMT)

If Pakistan tour is concern why would he stay till June?!?!? He should resign now... so definitely pakistan tour is not the reason... cmon guys its a normal sense.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 14:04 GMT)

If Pakistan is safe for the Australian Dav Whatmore and fielding coach Julien Fountain, then why it is not safe for Stuart Law? Pak tour is not the reason for his quitting, it is due family decision. So BD fans, stop posting senseless and biased comments. Your team has just won 2 matches in Asia Cup, and you have got over the moon. First let BD be competitive team outside BD and in tests, then brag about it. See you in the field on 29-30 April.

Oll tiger want to see ian pont our next had of coach

Posted by AlbertEinstein on (April 16, 2012, 13:06 GMT)

Go for Wasim Akram as your next coach, he's got a great eye and picked 15 year old Mohammad Amir from nowhere and nurtured him to become a class act in no time.

Posted by RaquibChow on (April 16, 2012, 12:48 GMT)

Wish you good luck and your family good health, Stuart! What you have achieved with the Bangladesh cricket team in such a short time is no small feat.. and for that, I thank you. You'll be missed! =)

Posted by Dashgar on (April 16, 2012, 12:46 GMT)

Woops, of course I mean Siddons. Simmons coaches Ireland.

Posted by Dashgar on (April 16, 2012, 12:44 GMT)

They should get Simmons back, he was doing great work and was moved on unnecessarily.

Posted by Herath-UK on (April 16, 2012, 12:31 GMT)

I'm sure Pakistan tour should be the real motive behind the sudden change of heart and he has indirectly told the genuine reason as'family issues' as it is the family who applies pressure on these circumstances.He still could avoid the short tour by leave and BD may choose to go with an interim coach as there is now no point in going with a coach who has quit.However the main problem for BD is any prospective coach would now realise after having established a short tour and that goes well,there will be real prospect of longer tours in Pakistan and I do not think any decent coach will cherish that;Dav Whatmore is the exception that is mainly because of his Sri Lankan origin and connections ,he has quite a tough mentality.BD, I think has been very very short sighted not considering this scenario before agreeing to the tour.

BANGLADESH CRICKET BOARD SHOULD APPOINT SOURAV GANGULY AS A NATIONAL TEAM COACH.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 12:28 GMT)

BCCB president Lotus Kamal is now dreaming to be ICC vice president. It will be for his personal achievement. He does not care about Future of Bangladesh Cricket. This is not important for him. Pakistan said they will support Lotus Kamal for the post of ICC vice president. It's really shame for us. We are sorry to Stuart Law. He developed as a wonderful team and made our team more confidence from small team to big team. We will miss you Stuart.

Posted by jammuthejatt on (April 16, 2012, 12:22 GMT)

He simply didn't want to tour Pakistan and no one should be surprised by his decision for obvious reasons. Shame on BD though for touring Pakistan!

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 12:19 GMT)

its in one state good for bangladesh cricket.. a foreign coach is not required for bangladesh, they need a coach someone like Habibul Bashar.. a local guy will understand the talent each player has..

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 12:14 GMT)

we miss u law please come back

Posted by saadirfan on (April 16, 2012, 12:14 GMT)

excuse people who say it is cuz of pk tour. the tour is at the end of april whears he is resigning injuly. plus can any1 send me the link where he has said that he does want to tourpk

Posted by Meety on (April 16, 2012, 12:12 GMT)

IMO - the Pakistan tour would not of been the trigger for his resignation. There are many instances wher a "deputy" or assistant coach could of held the reigns while Law stayed in Bangladesh for the brief tour. It's just TWO matches, there'd be hardly anything that Law would/could do on such a mini tour. It is odds on for other reasons!

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 12:03 GMT)

Family first. Cricket second. Can you not respect that?

Posted by JustIPL on (April 16, 2012, 11:57 GMT)

He is leaving the team when they are rising and I was not surprised when they beat India and SL in asian championship which was home conditions for all the participants. Pakistan were on a very low as well after that whitewash in UAE could barely avoid defeat on two counts. Avoiding defeat against Bangladesh in Asian Championship was the main criteria to become Asian Champion which speaks for itself. He would have stayed and been recognised as the revolutionary coach but might be a better offer is waiting for him. BCB should consider this point as well.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 11:53 GMT)

Purely his personal matter.......no comments

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 11:44 GMT)

Well I am not sure but I think may be he did not want to come to Pakistan and BCB forced him to do so.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 11:31 GMT)

It is a big blow for Bangladesh. A very sad news for Bangladesh cricket. The damage (static team with a set of fixed players and individual performances getting higher priority over the contribution to the team) done by Jamie Siddons was not easy to repair. But Law did an admirable job in making a 'team'. He was certainly not happy. Recently he expressed his unwillingness of visiting Pakistan.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 11:29 GMT)

I think this is an opportunity for Bangladesh to hire a ex Pakistani coach Mohshin Hassan Khan. He is the right man for the job. Pakistani team was in the same situation before Mohshin took over. They were playing individual game, there is no team unity, no team work and batsmen have no value for their wicket. Mohshin brought team unity,team work and dicipline the cricketers who were playing for themselves and not for team. Pakistani team has achived a great success during his tenure as a coach. So Bangladesh should acquire his services to prepare team for T20 world cup.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 11:29 GMT)

The only reason is the tour of Pakistan......Rubbish BCB...

Posted by Third_Gear on (April 16, 2012, 11:26 GMT)

To those who are trying to defend Pakistan tour of bangladesh "He is not going to tour PAKISTAN anyway and to make his way clear he resigned d as a part of his contract he has given time untill JUNE so intention is clear and house is near NOW he can watch the series by sitting at his HOME soughting his family problems and showing the resignation letter.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 11:08 GMT)

He will stay till end of June 2010

Posted by Saif_I_Khan on (April 16, 2012, 10:38 GMT)

Kamal is a big threat to BD cricket. The club tournament is in disarray- Tamim saved him by 4 half centuries over the dispute with Chief selector where PM has to come. Now single handed decision on Pak tour makes the coaching stuff go crazy..... BD should not forward his bame in ICC. He will be a big disgrace

Posted by Saif_I_Khan on (April 16, 2012, 10:29 GMT)

Those who are trying to assess this from his official statement does not keep track of Bangladesh cricket. He said lot earlier that he would not go. a decision without discussion has made him to make this sorry decision. The player selection issues have accumulated in. The only reason he would stay till June is contractual obligation. BCB need to learn to be professional body....... I am so sorry.

Posted by Fazle_Rabbee on (April 16, 2012, 10:25 GMT)

Ok. It is enough now. We need a Local Coach now. Bring Khaled Mahmud as a National Coach.

Posted by lionheart7861 on (April 16, 2012, 10:23 GMT)

Well I am certainly flabbergasted and disappointed with the content below. Pakistan Tour is this month , he is leaving in June. Please be rational rather being bias. Moreover Bangladesh has only done well in Asia cup lately , which doesn't make him a great coach.

Posted by bluebillion on (April 16, 2012, 10:20 GMT)

Just when they were starting to do well consistently ... big blow for B'desh.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 10:19 GMT)

What people seem to miss is that he is staying till june and the pakistan tour is in april. Whilst everyone is entitled to their opinion I think most people are missing the simple logic.

Posted by Sarfin on (April 16, 2012, 10:09 GMT)

Possibly the main reason is Pakistan tour. Family or the tour, can't blame him. He was doing a wonderful job and changed the mentality of the team. I was hoping him to continue till the next WC. It's a shock. Now BD have to find a new coach which is really tough. Jemmie!!! Can you fly from NZ?? I was hearing you in "Time Out" and felt you are still part of the team. The way you were saying "we" made me emotional...

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 10:07 GMT)

its ok he wasnt a great coach anyway.. think we ned a indian or pakistani coach this time... even australia dont have an aussie coach now a days.

Posted by AHKA on (April 16, 2012, 10:06 GMT)

Hi guys! Just chill, his decision it not for touring Pakistan, because just see the first paragraph that he will stay till June that his contract will expire !!!!!! And tour of Pakistan will be finished on 30th April. Thanking you, Ahmad Asim

pakistan is now a safe country for cricket.i hope straut law will come pakistan and found himself safe.

Posted by umarkhankhattak on (April 16, 2012, 9:46 GMT)

its sad. why people are too frightened to visit Pakistan. when goverment are giving them top class security with all the bullet proof vehicles, army, rangers, police. Security will be in hotel, stadium, roads, airport till they get back safely to Dhaka. Pakistan will do anything to ensure all foriegn Players are Plays down in a safe heaven. B'cox we know any more incident of anytime. NO more cricket in Pakistan for atleast a decade. and it will be heart breaking for every Pakistani fan. But i am dead sure we won't let anything to happen to our bengal tigers in 2 day tour. and i seriously apologise to our srilankan brothers as well as what has happend to them. I can understand that was totally a lapse of security issue and we took things a bit lighter and it happened out of blue moon. Hope all goes well. Hope for the best. God bless you all !!

ISSUE CAN BE ANYTHING BUT FAMILY COMES FIRST

Posted by shohagurp13 on (April 16, 2012, 9:35 GMT)

Everybody guess almost same and it is the only cause because life is more important than cricket. The tour to PAK should cancel for the safety of Bangladeshi cricketer.

Posted by ZulfiqarKSA on (April 16, 2012, 9:31 GMT)

I think Pakistan tour is nothing to do with it..which is at the end of this month..while he leaves in June...Please do not blame BCB for pakstan tour..Stuart Low is a professional; can handle things that are of any concern to him rather resigning...

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 9:29 GMT)

he will stay till June. Pak your is in April. So, No question of Pak issue. He is going to PAk

Posted by HashmiMA on (April 16, 2012, 9:29 GMT)

As Stuart will remain with BD team until end June, it is not right to say that he is leaving due to Pak tour.

If he was afraid of visiting Pak, he would have said not to going to Pak.

Anyways, this is his personal decision and we should respect it.

About Pak, I dont know why the picture has blown so much out of proportions. Afterall 150 million ppl are living there, and the danger is not lurking every where. We cant stop cricket in Pak just because of one or two bad incidents happenings.

Posted by Am85 on (April 16, 2012, 9:27 GMT)

To all those who believe that Law quit because of BD's upcoming tour to Pakistan, please read the news item again. It clearly states that Law will stay on as BD coach till the end of June. The Pakistan tour on the other hand takes place at the end of April. He may not have wanted to tour Pakistan but if he was this displeased at the board's decision so as to quit because of it, he would've resigned with immediate effect in order to avoid touring Pakistan and would not have waited till June to leave. In the past coaches have been known to leave before their contract time is up. He has not done so. He just chose not to renew his contract after it ends in June

Posted by raisul_bd on (April 16, 2012, 9:25 GMT)

Law will be with Bangladesh till end of June. So, PAK tour can not be issue here.

Posted by SaadS123 on (April 16, 2012, 9:24 GMT)

Point to note folks, He's leaving in June, a few months after the tour!! So if he had grievances with the tour, he's a man of conviction and would not be going. And that also only a 2 day tour which pakistan will probably close off a several mile radius of the city from the stadium, hotel, airport with thousands of seen and hidden army personnel.

Posted by dr.balwinder on (April 16, 2012, 9:23 GMT)

all commenters!!! his reason is purely familial issues!!!! not pakstan!!! coz he going after tour of pakistan!!! touring nation is govt decison!! not property of any board or coach!!

Posted by Taz786 on (April 16, 2012, 9:21 GMT)

Law's contract was due to expire on 30th June anyway, so he's giving the BCB as much notice as possible to find a successor for himself.

Maybe he's had enough of living in the sub-continent, don't think it has anything to do with touring Pakistan, unless of course he now comes out and says he won't be going to Pak at the end of April, which means it was related to it.

Posted by Masud_BITK on (April 16, 2012, 9:19 GMT)

I think, it is of his family reason and family might have pressurized him due to his recent tour to Pakistan. However, he will be welcomed by Pak people nicely, I am sure about. Many of Aussie coach wants to go Pakistan, because of professionalism. Since he is there till June, he has to go with BD team to Pakistan this month. Good luck with security and results.

Posted by Z.Saleem on (April 16, 2012, 9:18 GMT)

Don't think its him stepping down due to the tour of Pakistan as it says clearly on top that he will stay as the head coach until June 2012, so you guys should read carefully before writing. see the first three lines: 'He will stay on till the end of June, when his contract expires'.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 9:17 GMT)

He has done a good job for BD cricket. but I hardly think it is because of pakistan tour as he is staying on until June and not quiting straight away. guys suggesting that Pakistan tour is the problem should read the article and should not jump to their own conclusions.

Posted by KiwiRocker- on (April 16, 2012, 9:16 GMT)

No one should jump to the conclusion or else it make make you look embarrassed. This is exactly has happened for Rezwan Ul Haq and Subail Sunny who somehow were linking Law's decision to quit to Pakistan tour and now they have egg on their faces!Law continues until July 2012. No one has forced B'desh team to tour Pakistan. B'desh is playing test cricket thanks to support from PCB. B'desh cricket board for once has made a bold decision and taking their team to play in Pakistan or else they will hardly get any quality cricket againt quality teams. I do not understand all this negativity among B'deshi fans. BCCi has always snubbed BCB in back and b'desh team has yet to make a full tour of India since they gained test status so please be thankful, lose 2-0, come back and work on your cricket. Pakistan does not consider you an ordinary team like Sehwag did and Pakistan is not India to lose against you so just relax and enjoy the beautiful game! Law will soon be back in Australia!

Posted by qaiserjaan on (April 16, 2012, 9:13 GMT)

It has nothing with PK tour. He s honest man and may be after seeing the BD performance he has some new opportunity. PK has already Australian Coach and South Afr Fielding Coach. And just 2 days tour to PK will not force to Law for resign. He can skip the tour as well but he resigns. It means he has some other issue.

Posted by raisul_bd on (April 16, 2012, 9:11 GMT)

I don't think it is because of Pakistan tour. If he don't want to go there, he can apply for leave.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 9:10 GMT)

Issue is not Pakistan. He is staying till end of June this year.

Posted by Pane on (April 16, 2012, 9:09 GMT)

He is afraid of touring Pakistan.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 9:09 GMT)

He will stay on till June and Pak tour is in April, so can't be because of Pak tour that he is resigning. Yes, Family must come first.

Posted by Syd_F on (April 16, 2012, 9:01 GMT)

Based on local newspaper (www.prothom-alo.com) his resignation will be effective from June 30. So he'll probably go to Pakistan. My guess, if it's really his family problem, then he'll be coaching NSW or may be will be joining, in some capacity, INDIA.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:58 GMT)

Seems, a polite way of expressing his concerns in going to Pakistan. Yes, Rezwan Haq's guess seems right. Can't blame Stuart.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:52 GMT)

Probably wanted to leave on a high!

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:46 GMT)

to be very honest..i do not think that this could be because of Stuart's family problems..it has to do with Bangladesh tour of Pakistan.. He was adamant from the very beginning about touring this part of the world and as a protest he has resigned.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:43 GMT)

Wow interesting times for bd cricket!!

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:39 GMT)

I knew he wont last long.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:39 GMT)

This resignation surely based on family reason. Otherwise BCB won't let this couch slip out from there hand because he is the one who took them to asia cup final.And i thinks its a very good acheivment under his leadership. So hats of for stuart law (Y).

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:38 GMT)

Obviously this is a shocking news for every bangladeshi cricket lover. this decision is the outcome of pakistan tour. I can't understand why BCB president lotus kamal is so haughty to send national team in pakistan whereas no bangladeshi people want this tour.

Posted by   on (April 16, 2012, 8:36 GMT)

I do strongly believe it's an outcome of BCB's decision to tour to Pakistan.

WTH??? We had him and the team showed so much improvement... Y did he have to leave...

shuld be a bad news for BD cricket team. But i think it happened for BCB decision to visit Pakistan.

i dont know what happened with his family reasons but he was doing well and he should not have done this.

I wonder if this has something to do with BD touring Pakistan? Hope not

I do not think bcz of 'family reasons' within 6 months he will join some other country as coach. He may found that improvement for BD is limited and he will not get much results with this 'ordinary' team.

What a joke .. he was interfering management decisions, his job is to coach the players not management !

its bad news for bangladesh.....

Is it related to BD tour to Pak? Looks like he do not want to travel to Pak. If this is the case, it will give very wrong signal to world cricket. I am sure, Pak can provide fool-proof security to visiting Bangla. May be Law has some genuine family problem but timing makes me suspicious.

law quits because he doesn't wants to go pakistan with bangaldesh team .
