Former Australia batsman Stuart Law is the new West Indies head coach.

The 48-year-old joins West Indies having acted as Australia's batting coach for the 2016 Sri Lanka tour.

Law completes the new-look West Indies coaching team, headed by director of cricket Jimmy Adams and chairman of selectors Courtney Browne.

The former one-day specialist batsman has signed a two-year contract, starting work on February 15.

"I am excited at the opportunity to contribute to what I think is an interesting time for West Indies," said Law.

"I think this assignment has come at an important time of my career."

The departing cricket director Richard Pybus helped appoint Law, and hailed the addition.

"He has great experience and breadth of knowledge as a player and coach and his cross-cultural experience and winning attitude will be key assets in the development of the team," Pybus said.
