HEADLINE: David Miller named captain of Barbados Royals replacing Jason Holder 2022-07-28 16:21:24 

South African David Miller has been named the captain of Barbados Royals for the 2022 CPL season, replacing Jason Holder, who had been at the helm for the last four seasons.

Miller, who will return to the CPL for the first time in three seasons having last represented Jamaica Tallawahs in 2018 and St Lucia Zouks in 2016, was snapped up by Royals earlier this month along with his South African team-mate Quinton de Kock. He has scored 332 runs in 15 innings at a strike rate of 146.90 in the tournament.

Miller is also coming off a superb run in the IPL, where he scored 481 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 142.73 for champions Gujarat Titans. He will now renew ties with a Royals franchise, having played for Rajasthan in the IPL in 2020 and 2021.

Tallawahs = Jamaican captain

Knight Riders = Trinidadian captain

Barbados = Foreign captain

Holder won as captain when the team was rightfully called The Tridents. The IPL has muscled in and taken control. Where has our identity gone?

How many non-Indians captain teams or have captained teams in the IPL? What is the issue? It is franchise cricket. How many Guyanese have skippered the Amazon Warriors? Everything is a problem for the Caribbean people, the most insular people to each other. Some of you need to get a life and stress yourself out over real issues.

Not really, why can't the two aforementioned teams do the same? One can make an observation without being insular or xenophobic. We are all entitled to our personal opinions and mine is that you are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

How do you know you are not a female lol. The truth of the matter is that bobby seems to think that people are upset about the changes made to the Royals and the simple fact that 2 teams have only had local captains since the inception of the CPL. I believe in being fair and it would be good to see the same apply across the board. No one is losing sleep over this.
