West Indies A player Roderick Estwick replaced legendary West Indies pacer Sir Curtly Ambrose as the bowling coach on 14 May.

The West Indies Cricket Board announced the replacement on the morning of 14 May. The decision was taken ahead of the West Indies one-day international triangular series against Australia and South Africa that is scheduled to begin next month.

Ambrose has worked for the last three years as West Indies' bowling mentor and was also the part of the coaching staff during their T20 triumph.

Estwick, who will join the pre-tournament camp this week, served as a bowling coach for Barabdos in domestic cricket. He has also worked with the U-19's, both domestic and international, cricket.com.au reported.

Estwick, 54, played 37 first-class matches during his seven-year career as a player with Barbados, Transvaal in South Africa and West Indies A, taking 141 wickets at an average of 22.

West Indies will begin their campaign on 3 June against South Africa in Guyana.
