Haynes joins coaching raceAdam Collins |
Former West Indian opener, Desmond Haynes, has joined the list of contenders for India’s coaching position. The list of contenders is now down to four, after Sandeep Patil announced his intention to no longer be considered. Interviews are expected to take place in Delhi on May 19.
Aside from an impressive Test and ODI record for the West Indies, Haynes also has coaching experience, with Barbados in 2002. He was also chairman of the National Sports Council of Barbados, and most recently has been secretary of the West Indies’ Players Association.
Other contenders are Australians Greg Chappell and Tom Moody, and former Indian batsman Mohinder Amarnath. No clear favourite has emerged as of yet, though there is some speculation that the selection panel may prefer an Indian candidate, namely Amarnath.
