Legendary West Indies captain Clive Lloyd has been appointed as the head of the country’s selection panel.

Lloyd, who led the West Indies to victory in the inaugural edition of the World Cup in 1975, will hold the position for the next two years.

“We welcome the introduction of Clive Lloyd – one of the true legends of West Indies cricket -to the selection panel for the first time,” West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) director of cricket Richard Pybus said. “We are also glad that an iconic fast bowler like Courtney Walsh, and highly-experienced, former international player and coach like Eldine Baptiste have accepted to perform this important function.

“Courtney Browne is retained on the panel as both selector and regional talent manager, with a specialist focus on youth and women’s cricket.”
