Pothas, who had previously been fielding coach, will take on the role for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh following the departure of Stuart Law.

Law, the former Australia batsman, will shortly begin his new job as Middlesex head coach.

Windies director of cricket Jimmy Adams said: "Having Nic lead the team at this juncture is important for continuity and we look forward to strong and positive performances from the squad under his leadership".
