Former West Indies fast bowler Anthony Gray left T&T on Wednesday to take apart in the Cricket West Indies (CWI)/ECB Level III coaching programme as a presenter.
The programme which features 25 regional coaches from all six territories and the ICC Americas, all of whom already have the Level 2 certification.
Some of the areas of focus during the eight-day programme will be decision-making, captaincy, individuality for coach and player, team coaching and leadership, to name a few. Video analysis is also a key area. The course will be completed when final individualassessments are carried out in February 2018. The Lead Tutor from the ECB is Tim Dellor and he will be accompanied by seven other colleagues. The course will take place at the Coolidge Cricket Ground.
Gray said :”I am happy to be part of this exercise because I am fiercely loyal to West Indies cricket. I give it my all as a player and now I am trying to do the same as a coach. I have already gotten past level III and as a matter of fact I have been invited to try for my level IV which is the highest level in the game.
“CWI in my opinion continues to be very good work in terms of organising these exercises for the regional coaches and they must be commended. I have been asked to participate on Friday and speak on what made West Indian fast bowlers so great. The guys who structured this programme said it would be great to hear about the greatness and what created that for our fast bowlers. It is great to see so many guys reach the Level III and this augurs well for West Indies cricket”.
