Former England wicketkeeper Steve Rhodes has been named as Bangladesh's new head coach.
Rhodes was recently announced as one of the scouts to report to England national selector Ed Smith but will now become a permanent successor to Chandika Hathurusingha, who resigned from his post last October.
The International Cricket Council stated former Worcestershire director of cricket Rhodes would be contracted to Bangladesh until the end of the World Twenty20 in two years' time.
Rhodes left his post at Worcestershire last December following an investigation into his role at the club, ending an association with the county that spanned more than three decades.
The 53-year-old, who featured in 11 Tests and nine one-day internationals, will take the Bangladesh reins from interim coach Courtney Walsh, the former West Indies fast bowler.
The head coach role was offered to Paul Farbrace earlier this year but the England assistant turned down the opportunity.
