Pybus takes Windies role

West Indies have appointed Englishman Richard Pybus, the former Pakistan and Bangladesh coach, as director of cricket for a three-year period from November 1.

West Indies Cricket Board chief executive Michael Muirhead said: "Securing the services of Richard is a major coup for the WICB. I look forward to Richard joining us in Antigua and enhancing the work which we are doing, so as to ensure that all the necessary structures are in place to allow West Indian cricketers to develop and flourish.

"He has extensive knowledge in designing and managing successful cricket development systems both at the grassroots and elite levels, and we look forward to him building on the work we have already done."

Pybus, 49, who was born in Newcastle, said: "I am particularly looking forward to working with the West Indies teams - the first-class sides, the high performance programme and the educational structures - to ensure a rigorous, competitive system that feeds through elite players to international level."
