Not only the pacers, I think he will help all the players in the dressing room. I hope our bowling department will benefit hugely, especially in Test cricket.“I am expecting a lot from him and I hope all the players will think the same,” Mortaza said.“I was always a huge fan of Walsh. I watched him bowl since my childhood,” he added.Walsh occupied the post of West Indies selector for the last two years and was recently manager of the Under-15 select team on tour of the UK.The team had three wins, 2 losses. Prior to that Walsh served as manager for the Under-19 team to the 2012 World Cup and has toured with the men’s senior team as an assigned selector. (Sportsmax)last_img read more
