Former Tigers head coach Steve Rhodes officially departed from Bangladesh Thursday as the BCB mutually cut off the deal with him just after their 2019 World Cup campaign.

Rhodes Thursday visited the BCB headquarter at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur to complete the remaining formalities before leaving for England.

BCB president Nazmul Hasan told reporters in London Wednesday that, "Each individual has different styles, I am not saying his style was bad. But there are problems when mentalities don’t match with us." 

The Englishman had a contract with the BCB till the World T20I 2020 but it surprisingly parted ways with him after the World Cup in England and Wales.

He returned with the team after Bangladesh’s last group stage match against Pakistan.
