The T20 players, who have already arrived in Dubai, start their tour with a warm-up game against Emirates Cricket Board XI on Tuesday.

"He has been contracted just for this series," WICB CEO Michael Muirhead said in an interview with ESPNcricinfo on Saturday.

"He knows the youngsters well and had done well especially with them. We'll engage as and when we need him."

Radford worked as assistant coach under former head coach Ottis Gibson when the West Indies first won the World T20 in 2012.

He will work alongside Henderson Springer, who has been appointed caretaker coach after the controversial dismissal of Phil Simmons last Tuesday.
