The West Indies sacked controversial coach Richard Pybus has been removed from his post only seven weeks before the start of the World Cup. Floyd Reifer will become interim head coach, with Robert Haynes replacing Courtney Browne as interim head of selectors, while the entire selection panel has also been changed.
“We are confident that in Mr Haynes we have found an interim chairman who shares the philosophy of inclusiveness and shares our selection policy,” Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Ricky Skerritt said. “(Reifer) has lived the same principles of West Indian excellence that we now insist must prevail in our cricket.”
Pybus originally took over as high performance director in February 2018 having previously served as West Indies’ director of cricket from 2013 to the end of 2016, when he chose not to renew his contract.
