Following the disappointing T20 WC campaign in Australia, West Indies Women are now set to get a permanent head coach who could replace Gus Logie, the interim head coach and in-charge of the Women's team since October last year.

"We have now begun the recruitment process for finding a permanent Women's team Head Coach," Jimmy Adams, Cricket West Indies' (CWI) director of cricket, confirmed on Friday (May 22). The successful candidate will be expected to drive our women's program forward and improve our results across both formats," he further added.

Gus Logie, who had been the assistant coach of the women's team since 2017, was appointed as the interim head coach in October 2019, ahead of the India bilateral series in the Caribbean.

In the Women's T20 WC campaign earlier this year, the Windies Women failed to qualify for the semi-finals with just one win out of the four games in the group stage. The Windies won their opening game against Thailand and lost their next two successive games against Pakistan and England respectively. Their final league game, against South Africa, was washed out and therefore, finished third in the group stages.

Speaking of Logie's contribution to the Women's team, Jimmy Adams said: "We are grateful for the efforts of interim Head Coach, Gus Logie, who has led the squad during this transition period and will continue in his interim role until the [Recruitment] process has concluded"
