Mushtaq Ahmed to coach West Indies spinners for a month

Tue, May 8, '18



Former Pakistan legspinner Mushtaq Ahmed has signed a one-month contract as West Indies' spin-bowling coach.

Mushtaq's contract with the PCB as the National Cricket Academy head coach ended last month and the extension takes effect from July, allowing him to take up the role with Cricket West Indies.

"It's a privilege to work with the West Indies cricket team," Mushtaq told ESPNcricinfo. "They have produced many greatest cricketers and I have wonderful memories playing against a few in the 90s. They probably are not the same force in the world cricket at this stage but they still have a consistent pipeline of exceptional cricketers coming in the system. It's a short contract but still a month-long deal is ample enough for me to create a difference."
