Former Jamaica and West Indies leg-spinner Robert Haynes has been confirmed as the interim chairman of selectors for the West Indies senior men's team, replacing Barbadian Courtney Browne. The announcement was made on Thursday morning by recently-elected Cricket West Indies president Ricky Skerritt at a press conference in Antigua.
Haynes who was recently named interim coach of the Jamaica Scorpions, heads a three member team including new interim head coach Floyd Reifer and team captain Jason Holder. The Barbadian Reifer who was also confirmed as a replacement for Richard Pybus, recently coached the West Indies 'A' team on their tour of the United Kingdom.
The first task for the selection committee will be to pick a squad for the upcoming tri-nation series involving Ireland and Bangladesh. That squad is expected to be named on Friday.
President of Cricket West Indies Ricky Skeritt said Thursday morning's announcements are in line with the vision of his administration to take cricket in the Caribbean back to its glory days.
