CareerEdit

Following a successful playing career with the Trinidad and Tobago (1978 to 1992, captaining the side in 1990) and West Indies. His 52 Test matches returned two centuries, including his career best 130 against India in April 1983.[1]

Logie also served as West Indies coach between 2003 and October 2004, and also as coach of Canadian cricket team. After leaving the West Indies, Logie went on briefly to coach the W Connection Wanderers Cricket Club before taking over the Bermudian team. Since taking over as head coach, he has led the team to qualify for the 2007 World Cup in his native West Indies (Bermuda's first qualification in history for the event).

Logie was awarded the Humming Bird Medal Silver in 1993 for his service to sport in Trinidad and Tobago. He was chosen as Man of the Match despite him neither batting or bowling in an ODI against Pakistan on November 28, 1986. Adjudicators awarded him for his three catches and two run-outs, which helped The West Indies dismiss Pakistan for 143.[2] With this, he also became the first cricketer to win a Man of the Match award for fielding.
