Bangladesh have appointed former West Indies and Glamorgan coach Toby Radford as the head coach of the High Performance Unit.

The 48-year old has signed a one-year deal and his first assignment will be the tour to Sri Lanka in September and October.

"Bangladesh has many talented young cricketers," said Radford.

"It will be a privilege to work with and help develop them in their journey to success at international level."

Radford played 14 first class and six List A matches for Middlesex and Sussex between 1994-1999.

He was the West Indies' batting and assistant coach between 2012-13 and 2016-2019 and is also a former head coach at Glamorgan and Middlesex.
