Nicholas Pooran has been named as the replacement of the just-retired Kieron Pollard as the new captain of West Indies’ ODI and T20I teams. Pooran had been serving as Pollard’s deputy over the last year and has also been a stand-in captain leading West Indies against Australia in a T20I series in 2021. Pooran will take over the full-time captaincy from West Indies’ tour of Netherlands later this month. His appointment was also backed by Jimmy Adams, CWI’s Director of Cricket.
