Ryan Maron has replaced Andre Coley as West Indies' fielding coach. He joins the West Indies team in England ahead of their three-Test series which begins on August 17.

Maron, the 42-year-old former opening batsman who played 18 first-class matches for Western Province in South Africa, has previously worked as fielding coach with Dolphins in South African domestic cricket as well as with the Afghanistan national team. Coley, meanwhile, has taken over as head coach of Windward Islands Volcanoes.

"This is a massive privilege to be involved in West Indies cricket and I'm delighted to join the Windies coaching staff," he said. "I have followed West Indies cricket over the years as a kid and then as a player and a coach and I'm just happy to be offered this opportunity to make a contribution as a coach.

"The game in the West Indies has a great history and here in this group we have a young bunch of cricketers who will perform well. I'm also looking forward to working with the ODI and T20 sides as we look to climb back up the ladder in world cricket."
