Law for Brisbane

HOWZAT for a busy day yesterday?

Just hours after saying he was resigning from his role as Bangladesh's coach, Cricket Australia announced that former Queensland and Australian cricketer Stuart Law had a new job.

The 43-year-old, who played one Test and 54 one-dayers in his international career, has been appointed the Cricket Australia Centre of Excellence High Performance Coach in Brisbane.

Law's start date at the COE is to be confirmed after he completes his notice period with the Bangladesh Cricket Board.

He said he was looking forward to coming home.

"The opportunity to return home to be closer with family and work in Brisbane with Australia's established and emerging talent was too good to pass up," Law, who was only appointed as Bangladesh's coach last July, said.

"As a member of the first intake of the former Cricket Academy, I'm a passionate believer in the COE.

"I look forward to working with the rest of the high performance team, as well as the state and territory associations, to deliver programs that will develop and prepare players for the challenge of achieving sustained international success."
