Fast bowler Courtney Walsh has been appointed as the head coach of the West Indies Women up until the end of 2022. 

Courtney Walsh previously held a short-term role in the West Indies coaching staff. There, he worked as a part of the team’s staff during the T20 World Cup in Australia which was held last February and March. He had also worked as a bowling coach of the Bangladesh men’s team. Now, he had been signed to work as the head coach of the West Indies women’s team. 

Walsh says, ‘I've always wanted to give back in any way I can and help with the development of the game in the West Indies. The experience I have, my knowledge of the game, and my overall organisational skills will be key aspects as we try to develop a winning team culture’. 

‘I worked with the team at the Women's T20 World Cup earlier this year in Australia and in the series against India in the Caribbean last year, so I have a very good understanding of what is required. The ability and the talent are there, we have some fantastic players in the West Indies, and it will be my duty and focus to help the women to develop their talents and achieve the goals we are going to be setting together’, he added. 

His signing has also been confirmed by CWI director of cricket who said, ‘He will be overseeing the programme initially until the end of the next two ICC Women's World Cups in 2022, and he will be pivotal in working with CWI's High-Performance Team to move our whole women's programme forward’.
