Former West Indies youth team captain Dudnath Ramkissoon has replaced Ian Bishop as chairman of selectors for the senior Trinidad and Tobago cricket team.

Former Trinidad and West Indies player Bishop, who was one of the fastest bowlers ever to reach 100 wickets in Test cricket, was selector in 2002 but opted out of the post next year because of other work commitments, including a job doing television commentary, the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board said yesterday.

Ramkissoon, who captained the first-ever West Indies youth team to tour England in 1970, held the top selector position in 1991. He is currently a vice president of the local cricket board as well as chairman of the National Cricket League.

Joining him on the panel will be former West Indies stars Anthony Gray and David Williams, as well as former national all-rounder Roland Sampath.
