Sir Curtly Ambrose, a former national and West Indies fast bowler, said he wants to be the new coach of the regional squad when Australian Stuart Law leaves the job at the end of the year.
Sir Curtly, who served as bowling consultant for the senior team from 2013 to 2016, believes he is more than qualified to coach at the highest level.
Meanwhile, Cricket West Indies (CWI) this morning announced that Test and One Day International (ODI) Captain, Jason Holder will miss the upcoming Bangladesh tour due to a shoulder injury.
CWI disclosed that Holder has a partial thickness tear of the subscapularis tendon in his shoulder and will undergo physiotherapy and rehabilitation in Barbados. Sitting Vice-Captain, Kraigg Brathwaite will lead the team in his absence.
The all-format series, which begins on November 22, will see the teams playing in two Tests, three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals.
