Walsh wants in on Windies

Add the name Courtney Walsh to the list of candidates for the position of head coach of the West Indies team after the Cricket World Cup.

The current bowling and former interim head coach of Bangladesh, sat on the other side of the pavilion when the Tigers crushed the Windies at Taunton last Monday, but he is looking to switch seats as he has confirmed that he has not sought renewal of his three-year contract.

Instead, the 56 year-old leading all-time Windies wicket-taker in Test cricket says he is keen on getting in the West Indies camp. “I will definitely put my name in for the position. So, let’s see what happens,” Walsh said yesterday after Bangladesh lost to Australia at Trent Bridge.
