Desmond Haynes appointed West Indies’ chief selector

The 65-year-old’s contract will run till June 2024

Former West Indies batsman Desmond Haynes, who played 116 Tests for the country between 1978 and 1994, has been appointed the chief selector of the West Indies national cricket team. Haynes replaces Roger Harper in the role.

It is believed that the 65-year-old has signed a contract that runs till 2024, meaning Haynes will be overseeing two T20 World Cups and a 50-over World Cup.

"I would like to thank president [Ricky] Skerritt and the CWI board of directors for giving me the opportunity to serve West Indies cricket once again," Haynes said, reported ESPN Cricinfo.

"Being a selector is a thankless task, but a critical role in our cricket system and I am honoured to be appointed.

"I have always indicated that I would assist West Indies cricket in any way possible and I see this as an opportunity to do just that. I pledge to carry out my duties in a fair and professional manner."

Haynes’ appointment comes on the back of Cricket West Indies (CWI) not renewing former selector Roger Harper’s contract that expired in December.
