The former captain argues that West Indian coaches would be better able to communicate with regional players.



According to him outstanding former players are best suited for these coaching roles.



Kallicharran also says regional coaches will better suited to communicate with the environment and the players from the respective territories.



West Indies have been without a head coach, since former Barbados and West Indies fast bowler Ottis Gibson left last August.



Prior to Gibson’s appointment, West Indies were coached by Australians John Dyson and Bennett King.



In the meantime, Kallicharran says one of the keys to unlocking the potential in West Indies cricket is a return to grassroots cricket.
