Former South African First-Class cricketer Ryan Maron has been roped in by the West Indies to be their next assistant coach. Ryan will train the team in the fielding department while his colleagues Toby Radford and Roddy Estwick will take the responsibility of batting and bowling respectively.
Ryan Maron, who is now 42 years old was associated with the Afghanistan Cricket team during their 2015 ICC World Cup campaign. He was also a part of the side when they toured the Caribbean earlier this year. The visit to the West Indies was, however, a pretty successful one for the team.
Speaking about the same, Maron said that he is honored to be a part of the West Indies cricket team. He also highlighted the fact that he has been a long time follower of West Indies cricket and he wants to contribute in every way possible.
What Maron said:
“This is a massive privilege to be involved in West Indies cricket and I’m delighted to join the Windies’ coaching staff. I have followed West Indies cricket over the years, as a kid, and then as a player and a coach, and I’m just happy to be offered this opportunity to make a contribution as a coach,”
Maron started that the West Indies team has a lot of bright, young prospects and he would like to help them grow. He also said that the team looks to regain its lost s position among the top teams in world cricket.
‘The game in the West Indies has a great history, and here in this group we have a young bunch of cricketers who will perform well. I’m looking forward to working with the side, as we look to climb back up the ladder in world cricket.’
‘We are pleased to have Ryan join us. He has a vast knowledge of the game and has done some very good work. I’m sure he will be a great addition to the coaching staff.’ said West Indies Cricket Board director of cricket Jimmy Adams.
