Cricket bosses will cast the net far and wide in search of a successor to outgoing national coach Gus Logie.

BCB president Reggie Pearman dismissed suggestions that UAE coach Colin Wells had approached the board about the post and insisted there had been no applications for the job - which only became vacant on Wednesday and has yet to be advertised.

He said the board would consider local and international candidates but cautioned that whoever replaced Logie would need to be a highly qualified coach with international experience.

But he insisted the new man would be facing an uphill battle unless the players showed more hunger than was evident in the last days of Logie's reign.

Former Bermuda skipper Clay Smith said yesterday he would be interested in leading the team if the board opted to cut costs, following the $1million budget cut, by going for a local applicant.

Herbie Bascome, Logie's assistant for the bulk of his tenure, would be another in the frame if the BCB did decide to go down that route.

The early indications, however, are that they will look to replace former West Indies star Logie with an overseas candidate of similar stature.

In reality the search for a new head coach is unlikely to begin until the International Cricket Council reveals its decision on whether to include Bermuda in its global four-day competition - the Intercontinental Cup.
