Before these two series, the team has brought a big change in their coaching team. Former Bangladesh coach Stuart Law has been named the interim head coach of Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Stuart Law has arrived in Bangladesh.
For now, Stuart Loy’s job is to win the Afghans’ series against Bangladesh. “Stuart Grant Law has been appointed as the interim head coach of our national team,” Afghanistan Cricket said in an official statement. He has already reached Bangladesh, he will understand his responsibility before the upcoming ODI and T20 series against the country.
All the matches of the three-match ODI series will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. The last two matches of the series will be on February 25 and 26. The series is part of the World Cup Super League. After the ODI series, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will play two matches in the T20 series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
Law joined the Bangladesh national team in June 2011 after the resignation of Jamie Siddons. He did not stay long. He resigned after a decade. Law was able to bring success to the Bangladesh team in a short time. Under him, Bangladesh reached the final of the Asia Cup for the first time in March 2012, leaving behind India and Sri Lanka. But Shakib-Mushfiqur did not win the title after losing by 2 runs to Pakistan.
Stuart Law has since returned to Bangladesh twice more. In 2016, he worked as the technical advisor of Bangladesh U-19 team in the Youth World Cup. After that he also worked as the coach of Khulna Titans in the fourth edition of BPL. Now he has to plan to lose that Bangladesh.
