Ramnaresh Sarwan, the former captain, has been named to the West Indies men's senior and youth selection panels till 2024.

Sarwan's appointment was ratified at a board meeting of Cricket West Indies (CWI) on Thursday. He'll continue to serve on both committees until June 2024.

On the senior panel, the former top-order hitter joins batting legend Desmond Haynes, the newly-appointed West Indies men's lead selector, and head coach Phil Simmons, as well as former leg-spinner Robert Haynes.

“I want to thank CWI and everyone involved for giving me this opportunity to again serve West Indies cricket, as a member of the selection panels. I’m passionate about the game of cricket and especially West Indies cricket and once asked to contribute, I didn’t hesitate,” Sarwan said.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues, The Most Hon. Dr Desmond Haynes and Mr Robert Haynes, and the two Head Coaches, as well as everyone else involved in the development of this sport we love and respect so much,” he added.

During his two-and-a-half-years tenure, Sarwan, will select the squads for four marquee ICC events including, two T20 World Cups (2022 and 2024), an ODI World Cup (2023) and the World Test Championship Final (2023).
