St John’s (Antigua and : It will be a herculean task for the new West Indies coach to bring back the team on its foot. Former Australian international Stuart Law has taken the role of new coach of the West Indies on a two-year deal.

The 48-year-old will bring lots of experience being a former head coach of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to the job.

Law played just one Test for Australia but featured in 54 one-day internationals while building a solid first-class career with Queensland, Essex, Lancashire and Derbyshire.

He scored the most runs at that level -- 27,080 runs in 367 matches. Law was also named one of five Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1998.

Law will replace Phil Simmons, who was sacked by the board latter in 2016.
