Phil Simmons has been appointed coach of the West Indies for a second spell on a four-year deal, the country's cricket board (CWI) has said.

Simmons, who takes over from interim coach Floyd Reifer, was first named coach after the 2015 World Cup but was suspended for a period later that year for questioning selectors.

The 56-year-old former batsman returned to lead the team to the World T20I title in 2016 but was sacked five months later before subsequently receiving an apology and a financial settlement from the CWI.

Reifer was named interim coach in April as part of a number of administrative changes less than two months before the World Cup in England and Wales.

Simmons' first assignment will be West Indies' series against Afghanistan in November, which will be played in India.

The teams will play three T20Is, followed by three ODIs and one Test match.
