Richie Richardson is to captain the West Indies on their tour of England, which starts next month. The reappointment of Richardson, currently leading the team in their home series against Australia, was announced by the West Indies Cricket Board of Control last night.

The WICBC confirmed the previously-announced appointments of the former Test fast bowlers Wes Hall and Andy Roberts as tour manager and coach respectively. The touring party will be named this week.

The West Indies open their tour on 13 May with a one-day game against Lavinia, Duchess of Norfolk's, XI at Arundel.
