- South Africa
''Being a Selector is a thankless task, but a critical role in our cricket system, and I am honored to be appointed,'' Haynes said in a statement issued by Cricket West Indies (CWI).
''I have always indicated that I would assist West Indies cricket in any way possible and I see this as an opportunity to do just that. I pledge to carry out my duties in a fair and professional manner.'' Haynes scored 7487 runs in 116 Tests and played 238 ODIs for West Indies between 1978 and 1994, during which he won the 1979 World Cup and also captained the team in four Tests.
