Former West Indies captain and legendary fast bowler, Courtney Walsh has been appointed assistant coach for the West Indies’ women team.

Walsh will be assistant to Gus Logie, who was appointed coach last month.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) is still looking for a full-time had coach.

The interim management also includes former Guyanese fast bowler Rayon Griffith, who was assistant coach with the West Indies men at the 2019 World Cup and during the subsequent home series against India. He was also with runners-up Amazon Warriors at the recent CPL.

CWI’s Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams was pleased with the component of the team’s technical support unit.

He said Logie has been involved with the program for the past two years and both Griffith and Walsh bring with them a strong working knowledge of what it takes to be successful at the elite level.

Walsh was most recently the bowling coach of the Bangladesh men’s team and has also served as a West Indies selector in the past.

CWI also named Evril Betty Lewis as the team’s interim manager, who will lead the new team management along with Logie, according to a board release.
