Subsequently, he will lead the team in the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 Qualifier tournament in Zimbabwe.

In a separate appointment, Andre Coley, the former wicketkeeper-batsman, has been appointed as the head coach for the Test and ‘A’ teams.

Coley’s coaching journey begins with the senior team during the home series against India in July.

Expressing his thoughts on his appointment, Daren Sammy enthusiastically stated, “I perceive it as a challenge, yet one that I am fully prepared for and thrilled about.

I eagerly anticipate this opportunity, particularly when considering the talented players within our ranks and the positive influence I can impart within the team environment.

My approach as a coach will mirror the same fervor, determination for triumph, and unwavering adoration for West Indies cricket that I possessed as a player.”

As Daren Sammy reflected on the wealth of talent within the team, he expressed his optimism by saying, “Upon observing the white-ball matches in South Africa, I witnessed the emergence of promising leaders in Shai Hope and Rovman Powell, alongside the valuable guidance of Andre Coley.

This instilled a strong belief in our collective ability to excel. I am eagerly anticipating the opportunity to share my knowledge, strategic expertise, effective communication, and adept man-management skills. The prospect of devising plans and witnessing the players execute them fills me with excitement and enthusiasm.”
