Windies to have separate coaches for red and white ball teams

The West Indies will have separate coaches for their men's red and white ball teams going forward. The decision came after an independent review done following the team's first round exit from the ICC T20 World Cup last year.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) said the recruitment process will begin shortly and added that the red ball coach would also be in charge of the "A" team.

CWI Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams cited the increased frequency of back-to-back multi-format tours combined with the specific demands of the respective formats as factors behind the decision.

He says there is no longer enough time for one individual to adequately plan, prepare and review across bilateral series and franchise itineraries that are so condensed.

The review panel was chaired by High Court judge Justice Patrick Thompson Jr., and had legendary former batsman Brian Lara and veteran coach Mickey Arthur.

Andre Coley is currently the interim head coach after Phil Simmons relinquished the role following the Caribbean side's tour of Australia last December.

England and South Africa currently have separate coaches for their red and white ball teams.
