Former West Indies batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan will mentor the West Indies side ahead of their next month's tri-nation ODI series against Bangladesh and hosts Ireland, and the World Cup following it.
Sarwan, who retired in 2016 after a 13-year long international career, has already joined the ongoing week-long training camp in Barbados ahead of next month's trip to Ireland.
Incidentally, Sarwan was not part of the support staff announced by Cricket West Indies (CWI) on Monday for the Ireland tour and the World Cup. However, Sarwan has been roped in specifically to work with the batsmen. It is not yet clear whether he will travel to the UK for the World Cup.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
Sarwan pointed out that one of the key areas he wanted the batsmen to focus on was strike rotation
and stated that it would take them time to improve it.
"I know our batsmen have struggled in the past with rotating the strike,
so I am trying to see how best we can get them to improve in this area," he said.
"It's not an overnight fix, but it's important to share ideas with them,
so that they have something to build on."
He spent time with batsmen Darren Bravo and Shai Hope
in the nets on the second day of the team's training camp
currently underway at the Cave Hill campus of the University of the West Indies, on Tuesday.
