Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron has said the board will look for an apt replacement for the current head coach Stuart Law who recently announced he will be leaving the post by the end of the year.

Law has signed a four-year deal with English county side Middlesex to take over as their coach from next season and will leave after the tours of India and Bangladesh.

Cameron says CWI will hunt for the best in the business and someone who aligns with their culture. “We will be looking for the best available coach that fits with our culture going forward,” Cameron was quoted as saying by The Gleaner. “We have a couple more months with him (Law), so hopefully, we will get somebody in the interim to understudy him and try and have a seamless transition.”

“It is a great privilege to be asked to coach Middlesex and to accept one of the plum jobs in world cricket,” Law had said on his appointment. “I have very much enjoyed my time with the West Indies and wish the staff and players every success. There is never a good time to leave, but the opportunity to work with Middlesex for four years at the home of cricket was too good to decline.”

Law took over as West Indies coach in February 2017 and in under his charge, they managed just two Test series wins against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe – out of six. While West Indies qualified for the 2019 ICC World Cup, they failed to win any of the eight ODI series under him.
