West Indies Head Coach Ottis Gibson says the West Indies Cricket Board spin bowling clinic being conducted by former Pakistan off-spin master Saqlain Mushtaq will be vital to the development to a number of players.

A group of senior and emerging spinners from the Caribbean have been benefiting from the expertise of the legendary Pakistani spinner.

The clinic is taking place at the Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre based at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill campus in Barbados.

A number of West Indies sides will be taking to the field in the next few months and spin bowling could play a key role in their bid to overcome opponents.

West Indies-A team is now in India.

The West Indies Women will be playing an international home series against New Zealand and England that also includes a tri-nation Twenty20 tournament.

The senior West Indies men’s side head to India at the end of October for a series of two Tests and three One-day Internationals before flying to New Zealand for three Tests, five One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20s.

In between, the West Indies Under-19s also host Bangladesh for a series of seven One-day Internationals in Guyana.

Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul and off-spinner Ashley Nurse both attended the clinic last week before flying out to India for the A-Team series.

Other attendees include Windies off-spinner Shane Shillingford and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, as well as Windies Women’s trio of Anisa Mohammed, Shaquana Quintyne and Stafanie Taylor.
