Coaches applaud new WICB appointments

St.John's (Antigua), Sep 28 : At least two cricket coaches have welcomed the appointment of two former West Indies players on the coaching staff of the West Indies teams.

Ezra Moseley, the fast bowling all-rounder from Barbados, will join the West Indies Women's team as an assistant coach while Robert Samuels, the former Jamaica captain, will join the West Indies Under-19 team as assistant coach, reports CMC.

Roddy Estwick, long standing coach of the under-19s and West Indies women coach Sherwin Campbell, have applauded the selections announced by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Friday.

"It is great to have Robert on board. He was a successful Jamaica batsman and captain and has worked with the Jamaica Under-19s for a few years now," said Estwick.

"He will know most of the players very well and brings a wealth of knowledge and tactical skills to the team".

The West Indies Women are in Jamaica preparing for the three-match series against New Zealand at Sabina Park and the Windies Under-19s are in Guyana in camp, as they get ready to face Bangladesh in a seven-match rubber.

"Ezra is an excellent coach and it is great to have him join the team as we prepare for the upcoming series against New Zealand and the games to follow in a few weeks," said Campbell who has been in charge of the women's programme since 2008.

"He has been involved with women's cricket for several years now and is passionate about what he does. I'm sure he will fit in very well and make a great contribution to the continued development of women's cricket."

Samuels, 42, has been coaching at the Under-19 level for over a decade and earlier this year he was at the helm as Jamaica won both the WICB Under-19 four-day and one-day tournaments.

Since retiring, Moseley, 55, was a Barbados selector and worked for several years with the Barbados women's team.
