New Delhi: After a crushing defeat to India, the West Indies have decided to change the captaincy of the team. Kieron Pollard could possibly be appointed as the new captain for the limited-overs. The ODI and T20 captains Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite are set to be discharged after disappointing performances in the ICC World Cup and the recent series played against India. According to a report, Kieron Pollard can be given the responsibility of both formats.
In the World Cup, the team lost in the first round itself. At the same time, the captaincy of Holder and Braithwaite is in danger after the recent ODI and T20 series played against India. According to the information, the team will now be in the hands of Pollard in both formats. On Thursday, the CWI Board of Directors proposed the name of the team's all-rounder Pollard for the captaincy. In Pollard's favor, six directors supported him, while the remaining six gave no opinion on this and kept that safe.
Pollard last played an ODI for the West Indies in 2016. He was named as a reserve player in the team selected for the World Cup. Pollard was named in the playing eleven in the domestic T20 series with India. Kieron Pollard has played 101 ODIs and 62 T20s for the West Indies. He has scored 2289 runs in ODIs and 903 runs in T20s. Pollard is considered an explosive batsman of the team.
