Basseterre (St Kitts):

Former West Indies fast bowler Joel Garner has been appointed team manager of the current side for a three-year period and he has already joined the outfit who are gearing up for their Test series against India.

The 63-year-old was West Indies interim manager from 2009 to 2010 and also an 'A' team manager. He also served as a director on the board for West Indies Cricket Board and headed the Barbados Cricket Association as its president.

"I always answer the call in West Indies cricket," Garner was quoted as saying by espncricinfo.com on Sunday.

"It is always an honour to serve in any capacity in West Indies cricket and I'm pleased to be back with the team as manager to share my knowledge and experience to the team and be an ambassador for West Indies cricket and the region."

The legendary fast bowler featured in 58 Tests and 98 One-Day Internationals from 1977 to 1987 and was a key man in the West Indies squad which lifted the World Cup in 1979.

West Indies kick-start their four-Test series against India in North Sound on July 21.
