The West Indies Cricket Board have reportedly removed head coach Ottis Gibson ahead of this month's ODI series against Bangladesh.

According to the <i>Trinidad and Tobago Guardian</i>, Gibson will be replaced by former South Africa and Australia coach Mickey Arthur, after Gibson did not feature at training in Grenada.

WICB president Dave Cameron reportedly told the newspaper: "He is not in Grenada, that much we can confirm. Nothing [else] that I wish to confirm at this time. We are in discussions."

Arthur coached the Jamaica Tallawahs in the recent Caribbean Premier League – and was on the shortlist to replace Sri Lankan head coach Marvan Atapattu.

The Windies and Bangladesh will meet for three ODIs, a one-off Twenty20 International and two Tests from 20 August to 17 September.
