West Indies Twenty20 captain, Carlos Braithwaite has praised the influence of coach Floyd Reifer for the victory in the recent Twenty20 series against Bangladesh.

The regional team produced a strong all-round performance in the final match at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, to come away with an emphatic 50-run victory to clinch the series 2-1.

Braithwaite revealed that Reifer had taken up the post of interim head coach ahead of the series and his encouragement to the squad has had a galvanizing effect.

He said Reifer has been tremendous for the team since he came on board, bringing a lot of positivity.

Reifer, a former West Indies captain, is an experienced coach who has worked extensively with the Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC), based in Barbados.

He was coach of the West Indies A team and was drafted into the senior West Indies team for the recent tour of India when Toby Radford fell ill.
