May 22 : The Cricket West Indies (CWI) on Friday began the recruitment process within the Caribbean to find a permanent head coach for the West Indies women’s team. ''Following the recently concluded Women’s T20 World Cup, we have now begun the recruitment process for finding a permanent Women's team Head Coach," Cricket West Indies' (CWI) director of cricket, Jimmy Adams said. ''The successful candidate will be expected to drive our women's program forward and improve our results across both formats," he added.
The new coach will replace Gus Logie, who had been the assistant coach of the women's team since 2017 and was appointed as the interim head coach in October 2019. In the Women's T20 World Cup earlier this year, Windies Women failed to qualify for the semifinals with just one win out of the four games in the group stage. The Windies won their opening game against Thailand and lost their next two successive games against Pakistan and England respectively.
Their final league game, against South Africa, was washed out and therefore, finished third in the group stages. Speaking of Logie's contribution to the women's team, Jimmy Adams said, "We are grateful for the efforts of interim head coach, Gus Logie, who has led the squad during this transition period and will continue in his interim role until the recruitment process has concluded."
