Antigua and Barbuda - Former Pakistan coach Richard Pybus was on Thursday named as director of cricket with the West Indies Cricket Board on a three-year deal.

Pybus, 49, coached Pakistan from 1999 to 2003 and also led the Titans and Cobras to a total of nine titles in South Africa.

"I am particularly looking forward to working with the West Indies teams, the First Class sides, the High Performance Program and the educational structures to ensure a rigorous, competitive system that feeds through elite players to international level."
