The 44-year-old cut his teeth as a coach with the Leeward Islands, West Indies Under-19s and West Indies A Team, and is now looking forward to the chance to work at the highest level.

“I’m a worker…I love the game of cricket and I love to work so this a natural fit for me. I am really delighted to be given this opportunity to work with the West Indies team and I’m looking forward to this up-coming series here (in New Zealand),” Williams told WICB Media.

“I felt I did some good work during my time with the Under-19s, working alongside Roddy Estwick, and with the A Team, working with Hendy Springer and Junior Bennett.

“This tour will be a chance to make another contribution. I have worked with just about everyone on the group, so I know them and they know me.”

Williams played 31 Tests and 57 One-Day Internationals for West Indies between 1994 and 2002. He captained Nevis and Leeward Islands in a regional career which spanned 1987 to 2004, during which time he made 25 first-class centuries.

West Indies will play three Test matches, five One-Day Internationals and two T20 Internationals against New Zealand in the coming weeks.

The first Test match will be played at University Ground in Dunedin starting on Tuesday (Monday 5:30 pm Eastern Caribbean Time/4:30 pm Jamaica Time).
