Drakes takes over
IT IS OFFICIAL. Vasbert Drakes is the new head coach of the West Indies’ Women’s cricket squad, replacing fellow Barbadian Sherwin Campbell for next month’s tour of Sri Lanka.
Campbell, 44, who has guided the team for the last seven years, has been relieved after some modest results last year.
The girls were whitewashed in New Zealand in both the One-Day International and Twenty20 series and were swept aside 4-0 by Australia Down Under last November.
Campbell, who played 52 Tests and had four Test hundreds, took up the position of head coach of the women’s side back in 2008. (MK/PR)
