Toronto:Canadian Cricket Associations (CCA) appointed Andy Pick, England under-19 team head, as new team coach and begun preparations for next year's World Cup in the Caribbean.

''I was pleased to get the job and I'm looking forward to the challenge for sure,'' said Pick speaking from England in a telephone interview before his departure.

''We were looking for someone who has the knowledge, the expertise and the technical ability. said Howard Petrook, the Canadian Cricket Association's (CCA) first vice-president, about Pick's appointment

'' Former Nottinghamshire bowler Pick was due to fly to Toronto on Sunday with his wife Jennie and 12-year-old ice-hockey-playing son Greg, to take up the only full-time, salaried role in Canadian cricket.

''I've got a stack of ideas which I'd like to implement and I'm sure that when I get there I'm going to be told that quite a few of them aren't feasible, due to the geography of the country, due to finance. I'm going over there with a wish list of things I'd like to do. Said Pick
