T20 master Kieron Pollard has been named chief of the West Indies in white-ball arrangement supplanting Jason Holder, who will keep on driving in Test matches.
Pollard, who hasn’t played 50-over cricket for over three years has acknowledged his new job. This was after Cricket West Indies president Ricky Skerritt made an official declaration with Kieron Pollard close by.
The 32-year-old has played 101 ODIs and 62 T20 Internationals, having scored 2289 and 903 runs, separately in the two arrangements.
“Jason Holder was called by me yesterday morning and we spoke,” Skerritt said at the public interview.
“He’s a significant power is as yet going to be our red-ball commander. Holder will presently vie for a spot in Pollad’s group and utilize this as a chance to improve as a cricketer. Pollard is the correct man at the opportune time to take our white-ball groups forward. What intrigued me the most about Pollard was his perception and responsibility to offer back to the game,” CWI president saod.
Kieron Pollard’s opening task as chief will be against Afghanistan in November in India, where they will play three T20Is and three ODIs before a coincidental Test.
