KINGSTON – Cricket West Indies (CWI), along with several members of the West Indies women’s fraternity, have expressed sadness at the passing of Cleon Smith, the highly-respected and hard-working coach of the Jamaica Women’s side.

The 60-year-old died in hospital in the capital here Thursday following a long illness.

CWI director of cricket Jimmy Adams said Smith had made cricket development his life-long passion.

“It is with a deep sense of loss that all of us at CWI heard of the passing of Cleon Smith,” the former West Indies Test captain said.

“He has been an integral part of the Jamaica cricketing landscape serving as head coach of the country’s women’s national programme for over ten years.

“Cleon dedicated his life to coaching the game at community, school and regional levels and the game will be left that much poorer by his passing. (CMC)
