Celebrated former West Indies speedster Michael Holding has urged Cricket West Indies not to discard outstanding former teammate, Desmond Haynes, but to absorb him into the coaching setup of the men’s team.

Haynes, a member of the legendary West Indies teams of the 1970s, 80s and early 90s, missed out on becoming head coach of the regional side this week after CWI appointed his former opening partner, Phil Simmons.

However, Holding contended that Haynes still had a valuable role to play and said both CWI and Simmons needed to utilise his skills in order to enhance the struggling Caribbean side’s development.

“I would hope that a lot of other people that applied for the job that they are qualified in some respect, especially those that made the shortlist,” Holding told the Line & Length cricket podcast.
