HEADLINE: Skipper Mohammed will bring 'calm presence' Estwick 2021-01-12 13:01:56 

DHAKA, Bangladesh (CMC) — Assistant West Indies coach, Roddy Estwick, has backed stand-in one-day Captain Jason Mohammed to bring a high level of maturity to the position during the three-match series starting here later this month.

The 34-year-old, who has not represented West Indies in nearly three years, was recalled for the series after regular skipper Kieron Pollard declined selection due to fears over the COVID-19 situation here.

Estwick, who has worked in the past with Mohammed, said the Trinidadian's excellent temperament was one of the key features of his leadership ability.

“I think he's a very good leader [but] I think it's going to be very, very important that he leads well but the support staff, we try and give him as much support as possible because it's a young team [and] a lot of these players haven't played ODI (One-Day International) cricket and those who have played are starting over again," said Estwick.

It is really amazing how the coaches and Selectors think about the future of WI cricket. Mohammed might bring a cool head, but how about him taking the place of a younger player who could reward WI cricket with 10 years service in the future if he had gotten the opportunity to be expose to difference conditions and develope his game because of the exposure? It is one of the duties of the coaches to bring cool heads to the squad while on tour.
