CWI searching for new lead selectors

July 5, 2024

Dr. the Most Honourable Desmond Haynes is no longer the Lead Selector for Cricket West Indies’ Men’s teams.

CWI announced that the cricket legend’s contract ended on June 30, and he will no longer serve in that capacity.

The former West Indies Captain was appointed to the role in January 2022.

The same has been said for Women’s Lead Selector, Ann Browne-John, who was appointed in October 2019.

CWI says both Haynes and Browne-John have made significant contributions to the organisation during their tenures, and will seek to continue utilising their expertise.

Director of Cricket, Miles Bascombe, says CWI will continue the quest for excellence in the selection system, with ongoing restructuring efforts.

Bascombe elaborated on the new direction, stating they are committed to a selection system that reflects the current needs of the cricketing landscape, which will give them the best chance to identify and develop talent across all levels.

The new system will have an increased focus on scouting, depth charting, alignment with cricket strategy, and human resource management.

It’s anticipated it will take effect following ratification at the upcoming CWI Board of Directors meeting later this month.
