Former Windies fast bowling legend Courtney Walsh says he will be very much interested in taking up a role with the current West Indies team, this after his contract with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) ran out following the ICC World Cup, report agencies.

The former Windies captain, who took up the role of bowling coach back in 2016, did not get a contract extension with the BCB, and immediately made his intentions clear of continuing his coaching in the West Indies.

“I had a good run with the Bangladesh team and I believe it is time for me to come back home,” Walsh told The Gleaner. “I made it clear to the Bangladesh Cricket Board that I will not be available after the World Cup.

The West Indies have always been in my heart and I believe I can make a tremendous contribution to this new group of players.”

Since retiring in 2001, Walsh has played varying roles in cricket, working as a West Indies selector as well as a mentor for the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) back in 2014.
