Stuart Law appointed coach of West Indies team

Former Australian batsman Stuart Law will be the coach of the West Indian cricket team for a two-year stint.

West Indies is the third country that Law will be working for as the coach. He was earlier the head coach of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

“I think this assignment has come at an important time of my career,” Law said.

Law had an offer to be the coach of the Pakistan team last year. He had expressed inability to take up the assignment.

Law played 54 one-day internationals for Australia and just one test during the 1990s. He also made a mark for himself for the English and Aussie club sides.

“We are delighted to welcome Stuart,” outgoing director of cricket WICB, Richard Pybus said. “He comes at an exciting and critical time in the development of the West Indies men’s team,” Pybus added.
