Stuart Law resigns as Windies head coach

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Stuart Law has resigned as head coach of the West Indies Men’s team to take on a new role in January 2019.

Law, who took over as head coach in February 2017, leaves after guiding the Test team to series wins against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh and the ODI team through the ICC World Cup Qualifiers and into the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Law also oversaw the first Windies Test Match win in England for 17 years with a five-wicket win at Headingley.

Cricket West Indies (CWI), in a release today, said Law will continue in his role for the upcoming away series against India and Bangladesh and will leave to join Middlesex CCC in the New Year.

The outgoing coach was quoted as saying: “I have had to make the difficult decision to leave my role of head coach with CWI. It has been very enjoyable, and I believe we have made tremendous strides forward as a team during the past two years. I would like to thank the players, staff and the fans for their support over this period, I have appreciated it greatly. I will be taking a role with Middlesex CCC which will keep me close to my family, whilst continuing within the cricket family. I wish the players and staff of CWI every success in the future.”

Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams, expressed regret at Law’s leaving but said he fully understands the reasons.
