Haynes tipped to replace Brown as chairman of selectors

By Sports Desk April 10, 2019

Former West Indies and Jamaica player Robert Haynes is expected to replace Courtney Brown as chairman of selectors, recent reports have claimed.

The 54-year-old Haynes who recently serves as head coach of the Jamaica Scorpions in the recently concluded West Indies Championship is expected to be one of a few changes announced by new Cricket West Indies (CWI) boss Ricky Skerritt in a press conference in Antigua on Thursday.  Skerritt recently replaced Dave Cameron as head of the regional body in the CWI elections.

Other changes expected to be made are the axing of interim West Indies coach Richard Pybus who took over as coach of the team in January.  Pybus who previously served as head of the high-performance centre in 2018 and Windies Director of Cricket from 2013 to 2016 seemed off to a promising start in the job.  Under Pybus, the Windes defeated England after winning the Test series 2-1 and sharing the ODIs 2-2 to lift the team’s confidence ahead of the World Cup.

The Windies squad for the upcoming triangular series in Ireland and the World Cup is also expected to be selected on Wednesday.

  • Walton elated to be back with Tallawahs Walton elated to be back with Tallawahs

    Opening batsman Chadwick Walton has expressed delight at being back home with the Jamaica Tallahwahs for the 2019 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season.

    The 33-year-old batsman played four years for the Tallawahs before moving away to the Guyana Amazon Warriors after a lucrative contract offer in 2017.  Walton recently booked a return to the Jamaica-based franchise after being drafted third in the Hero CPL draft on Wednesday.

     “I'm elated to come home, I couldn't be happier. It's always a different joy to be able to play for your home franchise and it's a franchise I've won with before,” Walton said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

    “I'm satisfied with the teammates that have been drafted. We should be able to go very far in the tournament with the quality that we have,” he added.

    Walton made a solid impact in his first year with the Warriors, winning player of the tournament in 2017.  Despite making the final with the franchise who lost to Trinbago Knight Riders last season, the player saw his numbers dip overall after a difficult patch.

    “I enjoyed my seasons with the Amazon Warriors. We did have some success, but it was a pity we didn't go on to win it (CPL). My career path has taken me back home and hopefully, we can win again.”

    Walton was a part of two title-winning teams with the Tallawahs in 2013 and 2017.
