(CMC) – The West Indies Cricket Board on Tuesday confirmed the appointment of former West Indies captain Jimmy Adams as its new director of cricket.
The 49 year old, who recently stepped down as head coach of English County side, Kent, after four years in charge, has
replaced the controversial Englishman Richard Pybus who did not seek a renewal of his contract.
News of Adams’s appointment had been widely reported earlier this month.
The Jamaican, who will be based in Antigua, officially started his new role on Tuesday on a three-year contract and said he was keen to undertake his duties.
“I am very excited to be directly involved in Caribbean cricket once again, and I look forward to working with all those committed to moving the game forward in the West Indies,” he noted.
