Siddons end Bangladesh coaching job

8:55 am on 13 April 2011

The Bangladesh cricket coach Jamie Siddons will not have his contract renewed when it expires at the end of June.

Under Australian Siddons, who took charge in November 2007 when he replaced Dav Whatmore, Bangladesh have won two tests and 31 one-day internationals.

Bangladesh suffered World Cup disappointment last month when the co-hosts failed to reach the quarter-finals.

Siddons' final game in charge will be the third and final one-day international against Australia tonight.

Bowling coach Ian Pont and fielding coach Julien Fountain will also not be retained.

The Bangladesh government has launched an inquiry into the World Cup failure.
