Clive Lloyd, the former West Indies captain, has been appointed manager of the West Indies team for the four-match one-day series in India. Lloyd had earlier toured with the side as an advisor during the Champions Trophy in India last year, where West Indies finished runners-up.

Lloyd takes over from Tony Howard, who has served as the team manager since April 2004. Howard has been appointed as acting chief cricket operations officer of the West Indies Cricket Board.

The board also announced that Hendy Springer, the Barbados coach, will assist Bennett King, the West Indies coach, during the tour due to the unavailability of regular assistant coach David Moore.
