In another reshuffle in West Indies cricket, CWI president Ricky Skerritt has announced Kieron Pollard as the new ODI and T20I captain. Pollard has not played an ODI in nearly three years but CWI has decided to give him the captaincy after Jason Holder led them in the format recently in the World Cup and against India at home.

Hope this is the dawn of a new dispensation.

With the departure of the H&H axis, and its last remnant Dave Cameron,it seems the victimization of our top players is at an end and reconciliation can now continue apace.

As Gayle asked almost a decade ago "A Who De People Dem Come Fi See?"

One can only hope this is the end of the era of the egotistical, autocratic and overbearing administrators who apparently believed it was all about them so they competed with the players for the spotlight.

If we must lose let us at least give ourselves the best chance of competing by at all times selecting our best possible teams, without regard to the passport.

What kind of fcukrey is this? The guy is not good enough to make the World Cup squad, but you turn around and make him captain? Prediction: Skerritt will be buried in a shallow grave for this idiocy smile Welcome to the dawn of the traffic cop captaincy folks, not seen since Darren Ganga was at the helm briefly smile

Man it is official now. I jump on AUS bandwagon. Its too hard to watch this nonsensical charade - even a selection of Pooran as ODI skipper I coulda a swallow.

Entirely appropriate to have Pollard as WI T20 captain.

His record in that form of the game makes sense in that form of the game

Poland’s ODI record is poor and doesn’t warrant selection on the current ODI team. So once again, CWI appoints a “specialist captain”

You’d think they’d learn by now.

"Jason Holder was called by me yesterday morning and we spoke," Skerritt said at the press conference while sitting next to Pollard and other CWI officials.


Holder will now compete for a place in Pollad's team and use this as an opportunity to become a better cricketer


No call to Braffit?

Skerrit forgot the name arready big grin big grin big grin big grin

Someone posted above that one better be careful what you ask for.... Skerrit after 1 month is making Cameron look like a genius.

My gosh someone better hurry up and find out what else Skerrit promised in order to become president, cuz this ship could be sinking faster than the titanic.

In reply to CaribbeanCricket.com well it appears that names were put into a hat and Pollard was the lucky one to be drawn. When I think I have seen and heard everything the WICB comes up with a new gimmick. Incredible to name someone captain of the West Indies team in two formats when they have not been selected on the team and is a fill in captain for Dwayne Bravo in the CPL.
