Englishman Richard Pybus has made a surprising return to West Indies cricket as a high performance director, after leaving the post of director of cricket about a year ago.

In his new role, Pybus, 53, has been given the task to work with chief selector Courtney Browne, director of cricket, Jimmy Adams and regional coaches to “improve the high performance programs and standards within franchise cricket.”

Cricket West Indies (CWI) in a statement said Pybus’ role will also include, but not limited to standardizing coaching and preparation for regional teams and overseeing a talent identification program from the Under-19 level all the way to the Windies International level.

Pybus was appointed director of cricket in November 2013 and spent three years in the role before being replaced by former test captain Jimmy Adams last year.

He was instrumental in overseeing the implementation of the Professional Cricket League in the Caribbean four years ago.
