Joel Garner to Lead WI following Simmonds Sacking

Former West Indies fast bowler, Joel Garner will lead the regional side for the Pakistan tour following the sacking of head coach Phil Simmons.

Simmons had been in charge since the end of the 2015 World Cup, when he accepted an offer from the WICB and left his job as Ireland’s head coach.

He was informed of his sacking days before the Windies squad was scheduled to leave for the United Arab Emirates, where they will face Pakistan in three Twenty20 Internationals, three ODIs and three Tests.
