Adams new Kent coach
LONDON – Kent have appointed former West Indies captain Jimmy Adams as the county’s new head coach from early February.
The 43-year-old Jamaican, who played 54 Tests and 127 One-Day Internationals, replaces Paul Farbrace.
Since retiring in 2004, Adams has coached the West Indies Under-19 team and has been technical director of Jamaica Cricket.
He is also president of the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations.
“Kent are a county with a proud history and tradition. I look forward to working towards further success in the year to come and can’t wait to get started,” he said.
Kent’s chairman of cricket Graham Johnson said Adams had emerged from a strong field of candidates from around the world. (BBC)
