T&T's Kieron Pol­lard has been named West In­dies 'white ball' cap­tain and will re­place Ja­son Hold­er and Car­los Brath­waite re­spec­tive­ly.

A source close to the sit­u­a­tion who spoke to Guardian Me­dia Sports on the con­di­tion anonymi­ty ex­plained that the de­ci­sion was tak­en by Crick­et West In­dies (CWI) Board of Di­rec­tors. Guardian Sports un­der­stands that the CWI di­rec­tors made the de­ci­sion on Sat­ur­day, the first day of their two-day reg­u­lar quar­ter­ly meet­ing at the Hilton Trinidad Ho­tel in Port-of-Spain.

Pol­lard, 32, who is cap­tain­ing the Trin­ba­go Knight Rid­ers (TKR) in the ab­sence of reg­u­lar cap­tain Dar­ren Bra­vo, who is in­jured and will be out of ac­tion for two months, was the play­er pro­posed by the se­lec­tion com­mit­tee and when the vote was tak­en, he got the sup­port from six di­rec­tors while the oth­er six ab­stained.

A Trini newspaper “reporting” this news?

Will believe it if it comes from CWI itself. Vinode Mamchand has previously given out wrong info of a similar nature

I think it's true though I don't know why it's not CWI announcing it.

The thing is, he wasn't picked for the recent ODIs. How come he make captain now?

He deserved to be in place of either Russell who was injured or one in a blue moon Carlos

Well, that doesn't quite answer my question. I , actually, was advocating for his ODI inclusion in spite of his sketchy one day record, and I feel he will be a better captain than Jason and Carlos but of course time will tell.

I just don't understand how people don't play the format and then suddenly become captain. But is West Indies. It's traditional. smile

We are in dire straits in ODI

Do we leave Carlos there and let things go worse?

Give him a chance we already at rock bottom

Was carlos a fixture on the team when chosen as T20?

Was Jason an experienced Captain when chosen?

A drastic change is needed to see if we can change the fortunes of Windies team; neither men nor women can win ah lick.

I can't recall a more barren period for Windies cricket. At least when we started our decline, after '95, every once in a while we would win a match to show we were still keen competitors. Now, we can't win anything. Rather than turning the corner, these teams are "back backing" and unable to get out of the curve. In fact, even the once minions are throwing curveballs at the once-mighty Windies.

Skerritt and Shallow are politicians. You should know how they "get their wheels greased."

Serious question. How does Cricket West Indies voting work? If there are 12 total votes and six directors vote in favor of a motion while the other six abstain, does the motion at issue carry or would a majority of the 12 eligible votes be necessary for a motion to carry? In other words, can a captaincy recommendation by the selectors be approved by a 6-0 vote or would at least 7 votes be necessary for the motion to carry?

CWI gats 12 votes from shareholders

Then, they have one from the President.

Majority carries , except Guyana.

Why be a critic at this time, we dont know if its factual.

When CWI announces, why not give the player a chance to see if he has such leadership capabilities.
Holder was.

Now if he fails, one can be critical.

Until then, it sounds like sour grapes.
