Bridegtown:David Moore was named the West Indies cricket team's assistant coach, joining fellow Australian Bennett King on the staff. The announcement late on Monday came two days after the West Indies Cricket Board named King as head coach with a three-year contract.

Moore, 40, is a senior coach at Australia's Commonwealth Centre of Excellence.

He is a former player for New South Wales in the Australian first-class competition and was assistant coach to the Australian team at the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh earlier this year.

"Moore's experience and training in coach education and cricket development will also be a tremendous asset to the development of cricket throughout the region," the cricket board said.

The West Indies' next matches will be a limited overs series with Australia and New Zealand in January. They then return home for five Tests and five one-day internationals against South Africa in April and May, followed by two tests and five one-day matches against Pakistan in May and June.
