FORMER Jamaica cricket captain Tamar Lambert says he is so far satisfied with the transition to the next chapter of his career in the sport.
Lambert, 38, holder of a Level II coaching certificate, was yesterday announced ambassador for the hugely popular Social Development Commission (SDC) Wray & Nephew National Community Twenty20 cricket competition.
Between coaching and helping to market the game in whatever way he can, Lambert said retirement from regional cricket has its upsides.
“Retirement is going well so far — I just need to put things in place. I should have started doing that from I was playing but it's never too late to get those done,” the former wristy middle-order batsman told the Jamaica Observer, while noting that the Level III would certify him to coach senior teams in the region.
“I'm really looking forward to going into the coaching world. I'm looking to get Level III [certification] this year,” Lambert continued.
Lambert, among the most successful captains in the history of regional cricket who led Jamaica to five consecutive four-day titles between 2007-08 and 2011-12, played 99 first-class matches before retiring in 2015.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
