HEADLINE: CWI to create two separate Head Coach positions for Menís Red Ball and White Ball formats 2023-03-15 13:57:23 

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket West Indies (CWI) today announced that the role of Head Coach for the West Indies Senior Men’s Teams will be split into two separate positions.

Recruitment for both Head Coach roles will start immediately for a Red Ball Head Coach for Test and ‘A’ Team cricket, as well as a White Ball Head Coach for One-Day Internationals (ODI) and T20 International (T20I) cricket.

Jimmy Adams, CWI’s Director of Cricket said: "After recently completing an independent review of our 2022 ICC World Cup performance, which included a closer look at the roles of the current Head Coach position, we believe it is now necessary to split the role and engage separate coaches for red and white ball formats. The increased frequency of back-to-back multi-format tours combined with the specific demands of the respective formats no longer provides enough time for one individual to adequately plan, prepare and review across bilateral series and franchise itineraries that are so condensed.”

Not a bad idea, providing they hire the right persons for the job. In my humble opinion Daren Sammy is the right and best person for the white ball version of the game.

think he coaches a team in Pakistan.

Big waste of money, there is not enough cricket to separate the Jobs, let one of the present members of the coaching staff be responsible for white ball task.
