Former West Indies batsman Dr. Shivnarine Chanderpaul has been appointed interim assistant coach of the Guyana Jaguars with immediate effect.

The appointment comes against the backdrop of the departure of head coach Esuan Crandon, who has been named assistant coach with Cricket West Indies (CWI). Meanwhile, Rayon Griffith will perform the duties as the Jaguars head coach.

Crandon has been the head coach of the Jaguars since 2011, during which time the team has won four consecutive Professional Cricket League titles. Crandon will be with the Windies team at least until the end of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

According to the Guyana Board, Chanderpaul’s appointment is a very important one for the continued development of cricket in the country.

“The GCB wishes to indicate that the appointment of Shivnarine Chanderpaul comes at an imperative time in the development of Guyana’s cricket, where the utilisation of knowledgeable and experienced coaches can lend effective support to the program which has shown significant growth,” the board said in a statement.

“Shiv’s appointment is aided by his on- and off-field experiences in the sport. He has been a very productive ambassador, having played all levels of cricket, and it is expected that he will transfer valuable knowledge to the Jaguars.”

The statement continued: “As part of our coaching development program, Julian Moore will now be joining our academy with immediate effect as the academy coach.”

Moore currently serves as a head coach of Berbice and of the Guyana

National Under-19 team.
