ST JOHN’S: West Indies turned to former batsman Jimmy Adams to help rebuild the side as he was named their new director of cricket on Tuesday after signing a three-year deal.

Adams played 54 Test matches for the Caribbean side and will be able to draw upon a wealth of experience as he turns his focus to overseeing the development of West Indies cricket at all levels.

The 49-year-old returned to Jamaica after ending a five-year spell as head coach of English county side Kent last October.

“I am very excited to be directly involved in Caribbean cricket once again, and I look forward to working with all those committed to moving the game forward in the West Indies,” said Adams in a West Indies Cricket Board statement. He replaces Englishman Richard Pybus who had been in the position since November 2013.
