Nicholas Pooran replaces Kieron Pollard as West Indies limited-overs captain | Cricket News


ST. JOHN’S (Antigua): Nicholas Pooran has replaced Kieron Pollard as captain of the West Indies and Twenty20 One Day International teams.
Pollard retired from internationals last week. Pooran has been Pollard’s deputy for a year.
Cricket West Indies confirmed the captaincy on Tuesday.

Pooran’s appointment covered the T20 World Cup in Australia in October and the Cricket World Cup in India in October 2023.
He has already led the team in Pollard’s absence, a home T20 series win over Australia last year.
His first assignment will be in the Netherlands at the end of this month for three ODIs.
“I follow in the footsteps of several gaming giants who have created an incredible legacy for West Indies cricket,” Pooran said in a statement. “It is, indeed, a prestigious role, a pivotal position in West Indian society, because cricket is the force that brings all of us West Indians together. To be made captain is, indeed, the highlight of my career until here.”
