Simmons not ruling out a return to the head coach position

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Former West Indies head coach Phil Simmons would consider returning to the position, once his current contract with Afghanistan comes to an end following this year’s World Cup in England and Wales.Simmons, who celebrates his 56th birthday on April 18, was fired from the position three years ago, but came to an amicable settlement with Cricket West Indies, following the election two Sundays ago of Ricky Skerritt to the post of president and Dr. Kishore Shallow to the position of vice president, after a long-running, legal challenge to his dismissal.“At the mo­ment, I am con­tract­ed to Afghanistan and there can be no talk about West In­dies crick­et,” he said in a radio interview with I95 FM in his native Trinidad.“I’m fo­cused on Afghanistan and how we get ready for the Crick­et World Cup start­ing in May. But af­ter the Fi­nals on Ju­ly 15, my con­tract is up with Afghanistan, but no­body knows the fu­ture. . .My whole aim now is to win the World Cup, so af­ter Ju­ly 15, let us see what hap­pens.”Simmons added: “Every­one who knows me un­der­stands how much I love this re­gion and how hard it has been for me over the last three years deal­ing with that mat­ter. I am just glad it is over, and my name has been cleared.“Most importantly, the apology from the new president Ricky Skerritt goes a long way in clear­ing up a lot of the talk under the previous administration. I believe that this shows that this new team is about the interest of cricket and not about themselves.”Simmons, a former West Indies opener and parttime fast-medium bowler, claimed he had experienced many ills during his period as West Indies coach, although he enjoyed success with the team, winning the 2016 ICC World T20 in India.He said he was surprised to hear that Dave Cameron had lost the presidency of CWI to Skerritt, but he was looking forward to a different approach from the new administration.“I was very happy for all of those that love West In­dies cricket,” he said. “How many persons know who is in charge of the England Cricket Board? And how many cricket board pres­i­dents are on tele­vi­sion or busy tweeting? West In­dies cricket can look for­ward to Ricky and Dr. Shallow and that is the pos­i­tive going forward.”Skerritt and Shallow unseated Cameron and Emmanuel Nanthan 8-4 for the top posts in West Indies cricket.last_img read more
