John Dyson has been fired from WI Coach

John Dyson was recruited as a West Indies coach in October when he was a responsible coach of Sri Lanka team from 2003-2007. Now, he has been fired from the responsibility of the coaching just before one month ago of the ICC Champions Trophy 2009. The 55-year-old was the former Australian opening batsman and right arm slow-medium bowlers. The cause of the fire would be the recent white-wash to Bangladesh.

Guardian reported:

The side had a Test record of three wins, seven draws and nine defeats during his tenure and a 9-25 win-loss ratio in one-day internationals. West Indies fared better in the 20-over format, reaching the semi-final of the World Twenty20 in June. But perhaps their greatest achievement under Dyson was their 1-0 Test series victory over England last winter, a result that brought them the Wisden Trophy for the first time since 1998.

In his cricket career he has played 30 test matches and 29 one-day internationals but the average was just 26.64 and 32.82. The recent series lose and controversy decision during the visit of England too. During the absent of the head coach the assistant coach David Williams will take the responsibility of the team during the ICC Champions Trophy 2009 that will be held in South Africa from 13 September.
