Gus Logie has signed on for a second stint as Canadian cricket coach.

The native of Trinidad and Tobago coached Canada during the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup in South Africa.

Logie made 52 test appearances and played in 158 one-day internationals for the West Indies in the 1980s.

"We have huge confidence in Gus and his coaching capabilities," Vimal Hardat, Cricket Canada vice-president and high performance manager, said in a statement Friday. "He comes in with great knowledge and we will give him time to settle in with his ideas to help us achieve the target of being a leading associate country."

Since his first stint at Canada's helm, Logie has held coaching positing with the West Indies, Bermuda and Jamaica.

Logie will lead Canada in its upcoming ICC Intercontinental Cup and Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Championship series in Scotland in July.
