Fast bowling legend Sir Curtly Ambrose wants to return to coaching, after becoming one of the latest batches of 25 officials from the Caribbean and North America to complete the Level Three certification.

Former Test players Reon King, Pedro Collins, Stuart Williams and Ryan Hinds joined Sir Curtly in undergoing the course organised by Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Since his retirement from international cricket 18 years ago, the 54-year-old Antiguan had a short stint as bowling coach with the Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners as bowling consultant with West Indies.

He was replaced by Roddy Estwick in the Windies position two years ago.

A team of ECB instructors, led by Tim Dellor, conducted the course while former West Indies Test players Jeffrey Dujon, Gus Logie and Tony Gray, along with experienced coach Hendy Springer, provided assistance with specialist modules.

Jimmy Adams, CWI’s director of cricket, said the Level 3 course was crucial to the development of cricket in the region as it allowed coaches to proper prepare elite players.
