Desmond Haynes out as Cricket West Indies lead selector

Former West Indies opener Dr. The Most Honorable Desmond Haynes will no longer serve as lead selector for Cricket West Indies.

The Barbadian’s contract expired on June 30 after he was appointed to the post in January 2022. The same applies to the lead selector for women’s cricket Mrs. Ann Browne-John who was appointed in October 2019.

CWI Director of Cricket, Mr. Miles Bascombe, expressed appreciation for their services, stating, “We extend our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Haynes and Mrs. Browne-John for their dedicated service as Lead Selectors. Their insights and commitment have been invaluable to our cricketing endeavors.”

Cricket West Indies will continue the quest for excellence in the selection system with ongoing restructuring efforts, including the implementation of new and improved processes.

Bascombe elaborated on the new directions, stating, “We are committed to selection system that reflect the current needs of our cricketing landscape which will give us the best chance to identify and develop talent across all levels. The new system will have an increased focus on scouting, depth charting, alignment with cricket strategy, and human resource management. These decisions were taken following careful considerations by the Cricket Development and Performance Committee.”

It is anticipated that the new system will take effect following ratification at the upcoming CWI Board of Directors meeting that will take place later this month (July 2024).
