What is the salary of new Bangladesh coach Domingo?

Staff Correspondent | Update:

Russell DomingoGiven the salary some of the potential high profile coaches were demanding, the appointment of new coach Russell Domingo looks a shrewd bargain for the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

The former South Africa coach will receive $15,000 after tax every month, whereas the outgoing Steve Rhodes used to be paid $22,000 per month.

Former coach Chandika Hathurusingha used to get a whopping $25,800 per month, the highest for any Bangladesh coach.

BCB, however, was ready to break the bank. Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson was demanding $30,000 per month and the board was ready to meet that, but some other terms and conditions, including his desire o join after 3-4 months ruled him out of the running.

The foreign coaching staff usually stay at a hotel or in a rented apartment in Gulshan or Banani area of the city, with BCB paying the expenses.

Domingo will get a 24-hour chauffeur-driven private vehicle besides a world-class insurance, like the other players and coaches. BCB will also employ security staff to look after him.

He will also get bonuses, depending on the performance of the team.

The former South Africa coach will find his compatriots in the dressing room, as the BCB has also appointed Neil McKenzie as the batting coach, Charl Langeveldt as the pace bowling coach and Ryan Cook as the fielding coach.

Let's hope the four will bring successes for the Tigers.
