Croft offers coaching help to Bermuda

Will Luke

Colin Croft, the former West Indies fast bowler, has offered his services as a bowling coach to Bermuda.

According to the Royal Gazette, Croft asked the newspaper to pass on his details to the Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB)'s vice president, Allen Richardson. "This guy should be coaching England or the West Indies!" Richardson told The Gazette. "His resume is impressive, but at the moment I don't know what the Board's plans are."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
