Lloyd disappointed that Haynes was not chosen

Former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd, commenting on the appointment of Englishman Richard Pybus, expressed the view that Cricket West Indies need to tap into the talents of homegrown stars.
Speaking on The Mason and Guest radio show which was aired on Voice of Barbados last Tuesday night, he expressed his dissatisfaction that great former players continued to be ignored for the position.

Desmond Haynes who played played 116 Tests and 238 ODIs, and previously worked as a batting consultant with the Windies was one of the persons mentioned for the position by Jimmy Admans, a director of Cricket West Indies

“What I would like to see in the future of our cricket that people like Gordon Greenidge, who has coached all over the place, and Desmond Haynes, These guys know about cricket and our cricketers and they are not getting a chance to show what talents they have, and I think it is about time we start to do something of that nature” Lloyd said.
