Cricket West Indies appointed Kieron Pollard as captain for ODI and T20I

Kieron Pollard is now the new team captain for white-ball cricket. He replaced Jason Holder as the ODI captain and Carlos Brathwaite in Twenty20 Internationals. The selection process took place after West Indies’ defeat in the home series against the Indian Cricket Team. 

The CWI board of directors had a meeting in Tobago led by Ricky Skerritt. They later released a media statement that Pollard will lead the West Indies. ‘I'm truly honoured to be appointed captain of the West Indies and I would like to thank Cricket West Indies' Board of directors for placing their faith and confidence in me’,

‘I can't wait to work with the coaching staff and players as we start building towards future World Cups and give the fans more reasons to get behind the team’, said Pollard in the media release. 

Pollard’s captaincy will have its first assignment. The team will have a match against Afghanistan in November in India. The two teams are set to play three T20Is and ODIs before a one-off Test.

Pollard’s last ODI match is in October 2016. He recently participated in the T20I matches of the home series against the Men in Blue. The all-rounder is the leading run-scorer in the series. 

Kieron Pollard plays for Trinidad Knight Riders. It is a participating team in the Caribbean Premier League. The odds for the CPL will be available soon at Betwala.
