The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has appointed Jimmy Adams as its new director of cricket.

Adams was linked to the head coach role when he stepped down from his position at Kent in October, but has agreed a three-year contract to replace Richard Pybus.

The 49-year-old represented West Indies in 54 Tests and 127 one-day internationals during his playing career and is pleased to have returned.


"I am very excited to be directly involved in Caribbean cricket once again, and I look forward to working with all those committed to moving the game forward in the West Indies," he said in a WICB statement.

The outgoing Pybus added: "I look forward to Jimmy bringing the breadth of his international experience and knowledge of cricket in the Caribbean to continue the work of rebuilding West Indies Cricket.

"It is an exciting time for cricket in the region, with the momentum of the World Cup's success and the professional cricket structures beginning to produce players capable of competing and excelling at international level."
