Shivnarine Chanderpaul named as USA Women’s team head coach

The Women’s game is something I am a huge advocate of, and I have followed the progress of the USA Women’s National team with keen interest. I’ve enjoyed being involved in American cricket over the years as a resident of Orlando, so to be given this opportunity to become the Head Coach for USA Cricket is an incredible one. I’m really looking forward to using my 20+ years of international cricket and my recent coaching experiences, to help the women’s teams progress to World Cups in years to come, particularly the inaugural Under 19 Cricket World Cup in January.

Richard Done, Director of Cricket Operations, USA is optimistic about Chanderpaul bringing in consistency in the team setup. “We are thrilled to have attracted someone of Shivnarine Chanderpaul’s caliber to work with both the Women’s Senior and U19 Teams as Women’s Head Coach, and lead them onto the global stage. We have an exciting crop of young cricketers, of which many are already making their mark at the senior level. Combining the two roles will provide coaching consistency across teams for those players as they develop.”
