Gus Logie, the West Indies batsman, has been named the head coach for the West Indies women’s team on an interim basis as Cricket West Indies begin their recruitment process for a full-time head coach of the side.
Logie, who has been the assistant coach of the West Indies women’s team since 2017, will guide the preparations for the team’s home series against India women that starts on November 1.
Logie takes over the role from former Barbados batsman Henderson Springer, who will continue to assist Cricket West Indies’ Coaching Education programs.
“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.”
Another new appointment in the West Indies women’s side is that of the team manager. Following the recent appointment of interim team manager Anne Browne-John as lead selector for women and girl’s cricket, Evril Betty Lewis was named the latest team manager of the outfit.
