Sir Curtly Ambrose, the bowler with the most match-winning efforts for the West Indies wants another spell.

The legendary pacer is looking to lead from the front again having thrown his name in the hat for the job of head coach.

Familiarly known as Ambi, he confirmed his desire in a telephone interview on Thursday just weeks after Stuart Law said he would step down at yearend to take over at Middlesex.

“I can’t say if they are ready to take applications, but I know I would love to do it. So I plan to apply for the job because I’ve had my Level 3 coaching certificate for a long while now and if the job is offered to me I will gladly take it,” said the 55-year-old Antiguan, who is in Barbados doing commentary for ESPN on the Regional Super 50 Cup.
