ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Two major changes have been made to the management of the West Indies Women’s team as they prepare for a home series against India Women.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) appointed Gus Logie interim head coach of the West Indies Women’s Team and Evril Betty Lewis is the new team Manager.

Long-time manager Anne Browne-John is now chief selector for the women’s and girls’ games.

Logie will take over Barbadian Henderson Springer who will continue to provide assistance to CWI’s Coaching Education programmes.

The Trinidadian, who has been the assistant coach since 2017, will guide the preparations of the West Indies Women for their month-long series against the visiting Indian Women’s team, which starts on November 1 in Antigua.

“Gus has a long history with West Indies cricket, both as a player and as a coach. He has been a part of the women’s team for the last two years and knows the players’ techniques and skillsets. I have no doubt he will continue his hard work in preparing the team for India Women and then the T20 World Cup next year,” said CWI’s Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams.

He thanked Springer for his contribution.

“We are extremely grateful to Hendy for his contribution to the women’s programme over the last two years and we will continue to exploit his prior experience within Coaching Education.”

The recruitment process for a new long-term Head Coach will begin immediately.

Meanwhile, Lewis will take charge of the team immediately for the upcoming home series which includes three Medical Insurance One Day Internationals and five T20 Internationals. (PR/SAT)
