Gus Logie, the former West Indies batsman, has been named the head coach of West Indies Women on an interim basis as Cricket West Indies begins their recruitment process for a full-time head coach.
Logie takes over the role from former Barbados batsman Henderson Springer, who will continue to assist CWI’s coaching education programs.
Logie, who has been the assistant coach of the women’s team since 2017, will guide the side’s preparations for India Women’s tour of the West Indies next month. India are scheduled to play three ODIs and five T20Is from November 1 to November 20, with matches to be played in Antigua, St Lucia and Guyana.
“Gus has a long history with West Indies cricket, both as a player and as a coach,” Jimmy Adams, the CWI director of cricket said via a press release. “He has been a part of the women’s team for the last two years and knows the players’ techniques and skillsets. I have no doubt he will continue his hard work in preparing the team for India Women and then the T20 World Cup next year.
“We are extremely grateful to Hendy for his contribution to the women’s program over the last two years and we will continue to exploit his prior experience within coaching education.”
Apart from that, Evril Betty Lewis was named the new team manager of women and girls’ cricket after interim manager Anne Browne-John was appointed the lead selector for the outfits.
