Haynes appointed Barbados manager
Former West Indies opener Desmond Haynes has been named the new manager of Barbados for the upcoming Caribbean T20 tournament which starts on July 22. Haynes takes over from Jeff Broomes, who managed the team for the West Indies Cricket Board's four-day tournament.
The team has retained allrounder Ryan Hinds as captain and Emmerson Trotman as head coach. Vasbert Drakes will be the assistant coach while Jacqui King has been appointed the team physiotherapist.
Since retiring from cricket, Haynes has served as the first-vice president of the Barbados Cricket Association and been the chairman of the West Indies selection panel. Over the course of his 16-year playing career he made 7487 runs in 116 Tests and 8648 in 238 ODIs.
Eight teams are set to compete in the Caribbean T20, with the winner going on to represent the West Indies in the Champions League T20 tournament in South Africa in September.
