Cricket West Indies (CWI) announces the appointment of former West Indies captain, Ramnaresh Sarwan, as a Selector to the West Indies Men’s Senior and Youth Selection Panels, which are led by the Most Hon. Dr Desmond Haynes and Robert Haynes respectively.

Ramnaresh Sarwan is a former West Indies captain who played at the international level for over a decade. His appointment was confirmed during a meeting of the CWI Board of Directors on Thursday January 6, and he will be stepping down from his current role as Chairman of the Guyana Cricket Board’s Senior Selection Panel to focus on this role and avoid any conflict of interest.

CWI President, Ricky Skerritt, said:

“I am delighted to confirm that Ramnaresh Sarwan has agreed to accept the post of selector on CWI’s Men’s Senior and Youth Panels. He is a student of the game, and knows what is required of our young cricketers in order to achieve international success. The Board of Directors are confident that Mr. Sarwan will add enormous value to the cricket system.”

Dr Desmond Haynes and Mr Robert Haynes, and the two Head Coaches, as well as everyone else involved in the development of this sport we love and respect so much.”
