Kieron Pollard named as West Indies’s T20 and ODI captain


Kieron Pollard, who played his last ODI in 2016, will captain the team in the limited-overs cricket, announced the West Indies board after their meeting. West Indies team which is looking for a turn-around has advertised for the Head coach position and is looking out for candidates till September 20.

While Pollard takes over the captaincy from Holder and Brathwaite, Holder will continue to captain the Test side.
“Holder will now compete for a place in Pollard’s team and use this as an opportunity to become a better cricketer. Pollard is the right man at the right time to take our white-ball teams forward,” said the board immediately after the meeting on September 7,8.

“I’ve played franchise all over the world and I hope to use this experience to help the West Indies in my role as captain,” Pollard said at the press conference. “In the short term as captain, the immediate aim is to defend the T20 World Cup. One of the discussions I hope to have is to bring back the idea of specialists playing in their best positions,” said Pollard. Pollard’s first assignment will be in November against Afghanistan.
