Carl Hooper, the former West Indies batsman, has been appointed batting coach at the Sagicor High Performance Center in Barbados. Hooper, who scored 11,523 international runs in 102 Tests and 227 one-day internationals for West Indies will move to Barbados from Australia, where he has lived since retiring in 2004.
He has been appointed for the ongoing semester and will work with the centre's head coach Andre Coley, the former Jamaica wicketkeeper. Hooper's appointment comes after another former West Indies batsman, Desmond Haynes, agreed to be batting consultant to the national side for the ongoing series against Pakistan, as the WICB makes efforts to involved more ex-players in the development of cricket in the Caribbean.
