Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) president Conde Riley thinks that batting legend Desmond Haynes would be a good choice as the next head coach of the West Indies team.

“I think he understands batsmanship and that is an area that we have been failing in. Based on experience, he would be a good choice. I think Desmond has a lot to offer.

“All three of the candidates for the job are suitable. I wish them well, but Haynes would be my pick,” Riley said.

Haynes, former head coach Phil Simmons and current interim coach Floyd Reifer are in the three-man shortlist. (MK)
