Mark Robinson, who was heavily linked to take charge of the Bangladesh women’s team, snubbed Bangladesh Cricket Board’s offer and joined English county team Warwickshire as their first team coach, confirms a press release.

Warwickshire county cricket club published a statement on their website stating that the former England women’s cricket team coach has joined them.

‘Warwickshire County Cricket Club has appointed ICC women’s Cricket World Cup-winning and men’s County Championship-winning coach Mark Robinson as its men’s First Team Coach,’ the press release read.

BCB women’s wing chairman Shafiul Alam Chowdhury Nadel had earlier hinted that Robinson would arrive by the end of this month and BCB was also looking for special permission from the health ministry to minimise his quarantine days.

Nadel told the media that Robinson’s family barred him from coming to Bangladesh during the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘His family members are not ready to allow him to travel elsewhere and that is the reason he is not joining us,’ said the BCB director.
