CRICKET: Former Windies cricketers welcome Lloyd’s appointment as chief selector

Published:Friday | August 15, 2014 | 8:12 AM

Former West Indies cricketers Deryck Murray and Michael Findlay have supported the decision by the West Indies Cricket Board to appoint former captain Clive Lloyd as chairman of selectors.



Murray says the changes to the selection panel were a good move and a step in the right direction.



However, he says the future of the game does not only depend on selecting a team but on preparing future players for the international arena.



Findley says with his experience, his quality of leadership and his exposure to cricket at all levels, Lloyd will bring to the selection committee that kind of thinking that is needed at this stage in West Indies cricket.



Lloyd was announced last Saturday as the new head of selectors, replacing fellow Guyanese Clyde Butts.



He will be joined by Jamaica and West Indies fast bowling legend Courtney Walsh, along with ex-West Indies players Eldine Baptiste and Courtney Browne.
