New West Indies women’s cricket coach Courtney Walsh is keen for competitive games before the ICC World Cup qualifiers in Sri Lanka.
Walsh is currently overseeing a training camp at Coolidge, Antigua with a group of 24 women. It is his first opportunity to work with the women since his appointment last October and he says his priority is getting his players tournament-ready.
Courtney Walsh is a man of endurance. He came off a long run to bowl. And he could bowl and bowl all day. He earned every one of his West Indies record 519 Test wickets. Walsh was also a man for difficult times, being captain in one of the more turbulent periods of the last 25 years of decline, so in many ways, he’s suited for the major task he’s taken on to revive the West Indies women’s team programme.
