Former West Indies Women’s captain, Merissa Aguilleira, said she was “a bit saddened” by the sacking of the entire management unit following the recent failed Women’s World Cup campaign, but says she is excited by the prospect of working with the new interim management team.
Head coach Vasbert Drakes, assistant coaches Ezra Moseley and Stuart Williams along with operations manager Ann Browne-John were all shown the door by Cricket West Indies, after presiding over a wretched run at the showpiece in England last July.
In a complete overhaul, physiotherapist Oba Gulston, fitness coordinator Hector Martinez-Charles, performance adviser Donald La Guerre and analyst Trent Sargeant, were also replaced.
“I was a bit saddened by it. He (Drakes) has been a good coach. He had been with us for a little while now,” Aguilleira, a veteran of the squad with 103 One-Day Internationals and 81 T20 Internationals, told CNC 3 Television.
