West Indies fast bowling great Michael Holding has urged Cricket West Indies (CWI) not to discard outstanding former teammate Desmond Haynes but to absorb him into the coaching set-up of the men’s team.

Haynes, a member of the legendary West Indies sides of the 1970s, 80s and early 90s, missed out on becoming head coach of the regional side last week after CWI appointed his former opening partner, Phil Simmons.

However, Holding contended that Haynes still had a valuable role to play and said CWI and Simmons needed to utilise his skills in order to enhance the struggling side’s development. (CMC)
