Law quits as Bangladesh coach
Australian Stuart Law will step down as the national cricket coach of Bangladesh in June due to family reasons.
The 43-year-old, who played in 54 one-day internationals for his country, joined as Bangladesh's head coach in July last year.
"It is with great regret and a heavy heart that today I announce my stepping down as the head coach of Bangladesh," Law told Cricinfo.
The Australian, who also had a spell at the Sri Lanka helm, added: "Living away from the family and not seeing people growing up, I think we all understand that family comes first.
"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 replaced compatriot Jamie Siddons on a two-year contract, but BCB's media committee chairman Jalal Yunus has now confirmed his resignation.
"It is a matter of great regret for us to inform you that our head coach Law has decided to resign from his post in June for family reason," commented Yunus.
The high point of Law's tenure came at the Asia Cup last month, where hosts Bangladesh defeated heavyweights India and Sri Lanka during the group stage before narrowly losing the final of the four-team tournament to Pakistan.
