The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has appointed former Middlesex and Sussex batsman Toby Radford as batting coach for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) tour.
Radford will join the West Indies squad, which is already in the UAE, where they will play three ODIs, three Twenty20s and three Test matches against Pakistan starting later this month.
The WICB said Radford has been contracted just for this series.
Radford had left his job as coach at Glamorgan last December with one year remaining in his contract.
He is well acquainted with West Indies cricket and most of its players having worked as assistant coach (batting) during the tenure of Ottis Gibson who was coach of the West Indies when the regional team won the World Twenty20 for the first time in 2012.
Radford will assist Henderson Springer, who has been appointed caretaker coach after the WICB fired Phil Simmons recently.
