Brian Lara, a former West Indies captain and batting great, has agreed to assist Cricket West Indies (CWI) in his role as a Performance Mentor. He will work with all of CWI’s international teams and provide input into the West Indies Academy. This was announced by Cricket West Indies (CWI).
Lara’s new responsibilities will include assisting the various head coaches in providing players with strategic advice and enhancing their game sense, as well as working closely with the Director of Cricket on the strategic planning for the ICC World Cup Tournament. In addition, Lara will be responsible for providing support to the various head coaches.
According to Jimmy Adams, Director of Cricket at the CWI, “I am particularly excited for Brian to make a substantial contribution to our cricket system by supplying our players and coaches with vital assistance and advice. I am looking forward to it very much.
We are certain that Brian will contribute to the improvement of our high-performance mindset as well as our strategic culture, both of which will bring us increased success across all forms. Everyone is thrilled that Brian will be helping to support our players in this capacity.”
Brian Lara remarked, “As a result of my time spent in Australia with the players and coaches there, as well as my conversations with CWI, I believe that I am in a position to assist the players in becoming more effective with both their mental approach to the game and their strategies.
I’m excited to be joining the group in Zimbabwe, and I’m also looking forward to the possibility of collaborating with other West Indies teams later on in the year.”
The West Indies Test squad will serve as Lara’s initial task when she joins the team. He will be assisting the team in their preparations for the first Test Match, which will take place in Bulawayo on February 4, 2023. He has recently been added to the Test squad in Zimbabwe.
The West Indies competed in their final Test series in Australia a month ago, where they were swept by Australia 2-0. This came after the West Indies were eliminated from the Twenty20 World Cup in the first round of competition. Later, in November, Nicholas Pooran handed in his resignation as captain of the white-ball side.
Lara was a member of the review committee that was established by CWI in order to analyse West Indies’ poor performance at the Twenty20 World Cup.
Lara joined multiple teams with fewer than ten months until the ODI World Cup in India and approximately eighteen months until the T20 World Cup in the United States and the Caribbean the following year. Despite this, the CWI did not indicate for how long Lara will work with each team moving forward.
