Legendary West Indies pace bowler Michael Holding in currently in talks with the Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) to become their bowling consultant.

Holding confirmed that he was offered the position by the secretary of the BCA cricket committee Anshuman Gaekwad.

“I was asked by Anshuman if I could come and do some coaching in Baroda over an extended period,” Holding told ESPNcricnfo. “I couldn’t do the stretch that they wanted because of my already committed obligations. I have told them when I would be available and for what period of time so I am now waiting to hear back from them if it’s acceptable.”

Gaekwad, who is a former India batsman and head coach, revealed that he first contacted Holding in early April.

“He wrote back saying he would be free for about six weeks only in April and May and one or two weeks later in the year around October – November which clashes with the domestic season,” Gaekwad said. “His availability is little too less but it would be still worth having him.

“It would be a big bonus to have him here working with our youngsters. With his guidance it would go a long way for our bowlers.”
