Barbados - Former wicketkeeper-batsman Courtney Browne has replaced Clive Lloyd as West Indies' chairman of selectors with immediate effect, according to their cricket board (WICB).

Browne, who played 20 Tests and 46 one-dayers for West Indies, has been a member of the senior men's selection panel and was given a two-year term as the chairman.

The WICB said that Lloyd, who led West Indies to two World Cup triumphs, will be appointed as a special ambassador effective from October 1.

"The time as chairman was quite rewarding and I am hoping my contribution would have added value to the current system," Lloyd said in a WICB statement.

"I made every attempt to serve with distinction and I was pleased to contribute to the game again."

West Indies will face South Africa in Bridgetown in the ongoing triangular series on Friday for a place in Sunday's final against Australia.
