HEADLINE: Barbadian Chase says Windies captain encouraging unity, self-belief among squad 2024-02-15 14:12:33 

All-rounder Roston Chase believes captain Rovman Powell has been instrumental in improving the fortunes of the T20 unit, as the buildup continues to this year’s T20 World Cup in the Caribbean and North America.

Speaking following West Indies’ 37-run victory over Australia on Tuesday in Perth, Chase said Powell had instilled “a different vibe” in the camp, which had led to unity and self-belief among players.

The 30-year-old Powell was appointed captain a year ago, replacing Nicholas Pooran who quit after West Indies failed to qualify for the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022.

Powell subsequently led the Caribbean side to three straight series wins in 2023, defeating South Africa away and India and England at home.

Now that's how you choose which ass to lick. The captain has a big say in the team he wants on the field.

So when Chase said that Cornwall was top quality spinner and Permaul was the best spinner in the region I guess he was kissing up to those two. Roston is just a nice guy who respects his fellow players.
As long as Sammy his Franchise coach is in charge, Roston will be under consideration, no matter who is captain.
