Stuart Law, head coach of the Windies cricket team has resigned from his post, one which he took up in February 2017. His last assignment will be the Windies tours of India and Bangladesh.

"I have had to make the difficult decision to leave my role of Head Coach with CWI," Law said in a press release on Monday (September 24). "It has been very enjoyable, and I believe we have made tremendous strides forward as a Team during the past 2 years."

"I will be taking a role with Middlesex CCC which will keep me close to my family, whilst continuing within the cricket family. I wish the players and staff of CWI every success in the future."

Law was appointed to fill in the role that had been left vacant following the sacking of Phil Simmons on disciplinary grounds in September 2016. He oversaw Windies across 32 Tests, nine of which ending in victories, and 19 T20Is with eight wins.

Johnny Grave, the CWI chief executive, said he was disappointed with the resignation."I am disappointed that Stuart is leaving as I believe that we have made real progress under his leadership. I know it was a difficult decision for him and that ultimately the opportunity to work in England, where his family is now based, was a major factor in his decision. We will start the process to appoint a new Head Coach immediately."
