CWI appoints coaches and managers for tri-series and ICC World Cup

By April 15, 2019

The Windies cricket team selected for the upcoming tri-series against Ireland and Bangladesh next month met with the new coaching staff led by Floyd Reifer on Monday.

Reifer was appointed Interim Head Coach last week following the dismissal of Richard Pybus and Vasbert Drakes. Drakes has subsequently filed suit against CWI  claiming he was unlawfully dismissed.

Meanwhile, Reifer has been given a full support staff to get the team ready for the pre-World Cup tournament.

They include Roddy Estwick, the assistant coach, Corey Collymore - assistant coach (Fast Bowling), Rayon Griffith - assistant coach (Fielding), and Mushtaq Ahmed – assistant coach (Spin Bowling) and Corey Bocking, Strength and Conditioning Coach.

Rawl Lewis will be the team manager. His management team will consist of Dr Oba Gulston, Physiotherapist, Dexter Augustus - Video and Data Analyst, Steven Sylvester - Sports Psychologist and Zephyrinus Nicholas - Massage Therapist.

“CWI have, in consultation with interim Head Coach Floyd Reifer, assembled a strong support group of coaches to work with the squad for the Tri-Series against Ireland and Bangladesh as we prepare for the World Cup. This support group will continue throughout the ICC Cricket World Cup in England,” said CWI Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams.

 “The training camp is now taking place in Barbados, as the CCG in Antigua is currently being used as a venue for the West Indies U15 Super50 Cup, where there will be heavy usage of the ground and training facilities.”
