Sebastien replaces Walsh as WI selector
Lockhart Sebastien has been appointed for a two-year term as a selector for the WICB, filling the place vacated by former fast bowling great Courtney Walsh. Walsh had stepped down from the selection panel last month after signing on as Bangladesh’s new bowling coach.
Sebastien, a former opening batsman for Dominica, has served in various capacities within the WICB over the past few decades. He has managed the Windward Islands team for the last 12 years and has served as a director on the Windward Islands board for the last ten years. He also served as manager for West Indies A in 2013 and 2014.
While thanking the Board of Directors for approving his appointment, Sebastien spoke of his determination to contribute as a selector. “I have always been a team player and, together with the other selectors, we will ensure the best West Indies team is selected at all times,” he said.
“Selectors have not always pleased everyone in the Caribbean but I am part of a team who will try the utmost to make Caribbean people happy.” (ESPNCricinfo)
