Cricket West Indies (CWI) has fired the West Indies Women’s Management team, which oversaw the regional side’s despicable campaign at the recent Women’s World Cup in England.

In a release recently, CWC said it would be “setting up a new support structure for the team” ahead of the upcoming Sri Lanka Women’s tour of the Caribbean starting next month.

Media reports said head coach Vasbert Drakes, along with Ezra Moseley, Stuart Williams and Operations Manager Ann Brown-John had all been axed from their positions.

The experienced Henderson “Hendy” Springer has been named as head coach and former West Indies Head Coach Gus Logie as his assistant, in an interim management team.

Physiotherapist Oba Gulston has been replaced by Ariane Mangar, while fitness coordinator Hector Martinez-Charles has been replaced by Shayne Cooper.

The West Indies Women, one of the favorites for the World Cup, lost all their warm-up matches and then their first four matches in the preliminary round and suffered elimination.

Their only two wins came against Sri Land and Pakistan- the two weakest teams in the tournament- and they finished sixth of the eight teams with five defeats, ending on four points.
