Guyana Amazon Warriors have announced the appointment of Carl Hooper as their head coach for the 2015 Limacol Caribbean Premier League season.
The former West Indies captain was assistant coach for the Antigua Hawksbills in 2014 and has experience as coach at the West Indies Cricket Board's High Performance Centre in Barbados.
"I'm extremely delighted to be appointed as head coach of Guyana and to be part of CPL 2015," he said.
Hooper represented Guyana at first-class level during a superb career that also saw him play in England with Kent and Lancashire.
He made his Test debut for the Windies in 1987 and became the first cricketer in the world to score 5,000 runs, take 100 wickets, 100 catches and earn 100 caps in both ODIs and Tests - a feat since matched by South African all-rounderJacques Kallis, who has signed on to play in CPL 2015.
The Guyana-born Hooper, 48, said he was particularly looking forward to helping develop young local cricketers from the island who will be part of the squad.
