JOEL GARNER has taken over as chairman of cricket selectors in Barbados, replacing Richard "Prof" Edwards in an entire panel change by the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA).
Joining Garner, fellow former West Indies players Philo Wallace and Thelston Payne, are in three of the hottest seats in local cricket.
The 52-year-old Garner, known as "Big Bird", is a fast bowling legend who took 259 wickets in 58 Tests matches. He is also a former Barbados and West Indies selector.
Appointing the new panel is one of the first moves made by the new BCA board headed by Tony Marshall. Wallace takes over as chairman of the youth selection panel.
The BCA has also named former Barbados off-spinner Lawrence Maxwell as the new manager, replacing Roland Holder, who is working in Jamaica as a senior officer
in the Cricket World Cup 2007 secretariat.
Maxwell was Barbados manager in 1995 and 1996. These decisions were made as the new board held a meeting at the BCA office on Friday night.
Anthea Ishmael, an international scorer, has been appointed to the BCA board
to fill the spot left vacant when Vernon Williams was elected honorary secretary. Ishmael is the second female on the board. The first was Pat Greenidge, who was treasurer five years ago.
The BCA has not yet selected the captain and coach for the President's Cup, which will be held in Barbados in October. SUNDAY SUN understands that Courtney Browne is expected to be retained as captain.
Sources have however suggested that coach Hendy Springer could face a challenge as some senior officials are interested in former West Indies player Vasbert Drakes.
