Rawle Lewis new
Cricket West Indies (CWI) has made some
sweeping changes to their management
team as they bid to improve on the perfor-
mances of the regional outfit.
After news that bowling coach Roddy
Estwick has been removed, comes further
news that manager of the team Joel Garner
has been reassigned to another portfolio.
Guardian Media Sports understands from
a source who is close to the latest devel-
opments and who spoke to us on the con-
dition of anonymity that Garner has been
reassigned to the role of ambassador of
CWI and will be utilised for special pro-
jects. The ambassador role is in line with
other big cricket boards around the world.
Barbadian Garner will be replaced by for-
mer West Indies leg-spinner Rawle Lewis
who has been with CWI for quite a while in
the operations department.
Lewis of Grenada managed the team dur-
ing the successful World T20 run in 2o16.
Estwick, who replaced the legendary
Curtly Ambrose in 2016, is expected to be
replaced by a foreign bowling coach and
his role will either go to Ian Harvey out of
Australia or Alfonso Thomas out of South
Africa. The two are the leading contenders
for the job and a decision on who wins out
will be made later this week. Head coach,
the Australian Stuart Law remains in his
position. Englishman Toby Radford will re-
main in his role as assistant coach to Law.
The source also revealed that the next
fast bowling coach either Thomas or Har-
vey will also be working with the West In-
dies Under-19 team and A teams.
CWI has embarked on these changes
before the team leaves for the ICC World
Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe in March. The
Windies will be looking to win the 10-team
tournament and head into the World Cup
that is to be played in England in 2019.
The team has not been returning good
performances over the last year or so
after regional teams won three titles in
2016. They won the ICC Men’s World T20,
the Women’s World T20 and the ICC U-19
World Cup titles. Since then they have lost
to Australia, Pakistan, England and New
Zealand and is now ranked eight in Test
cricket and 9th in ODI. In the shorter for-
mat the Windies continue to hold their
Naparima College shot to
the top of the standings
in the PowerGen Sec-
ondary Schools cricket
league Premiership divi-
sion, when they defeated
Barrackpore West by six
wickets in their second round encounter in
Naps, which took care of newcomers
St. Benedicts College last week, continued
their winning ways and restricted Bar-
rackpore to 180 all out thanks in the main
to spinner Justin Gangoo 3/12 and Ryan
Bandoo 2/45. Skipper Gangoo had a won-
derful game and returned to score an un-
beaten 59 batting at number three to take
his school home at 181/4. In Port-of-Spain,
Fatima College opened their account after
the team’s first round game against Signal
Hill was abandoned last week. Miguel Paty
boys batted first and scored a healthy 267
for eight with Andel Nicholas making 94 to
lead the way. Carapichaima in reply could
muster only 102 as Jacobs Young-Kasim 3/47
and Joshua Wilson 3/25 proved a handful.
The other two Premiership games were
not played. Hillview’s clash against Ben-
edicts will be played today due to an un-
prepared ground and Signal Hill could not
get airline tickets to travel to Trinidad for
their game against Presentation College,
In the championships, Manzanilla con-
tinues to catch the eye, as they hammered
QRC by 217 runs. Alex Ali who scored 87
last week scored 129 to lead his school to
310/9 and Christoph Lewis nabbed 3/10 to
bowl out QRC for 93.
