Henderson Springer has been named the new interim coach of the Windies Women cricket team.
He replaces Vasbert Drakes who along with the entire management staff for the recent ICC Women’s World Cup in England, which included assistant coaches Ezra Moseley and Stuart Williams, were fired in August following a dismal showing by the WIndies Women at the World Cup.
Springer’s first assignment will be the upcoming One Day International and T20I home series against Sri Lanka next month which will serve as the first round qualifiers for the 2021 Women’s World Cup.
An 18-member squad will gather for a camp from September 25 to October 4 from which the final 13 will be selected for the three ODIs, three T20 series, scheduled for Trinidad and Tobago and Antigua.
The interim team will consist of Henderson Springer (head coach); Gus Logie (assistant coach); Ariane Mangar (Physiotherapist), Shayne Cooper (Sport and Conditioning Trainer) and Gary Belle (Analyst).
