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.
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.
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 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.
Bangladesh media committee chairman Jalal Yunus said the board understood Law's decision.
