Roston Chase has been appointed West Indies Test vice-captain for the tour of New Zealand, according to reports yesterday.

The Daily Nation reported that Chase had replaced compatriot and long-serving opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite in the position for the Test series against the Black Caps.

“When I got the call from head coach Phil Simmons, he told me that he had a chat with the selectors and the board, and they agreed that I was the player for the vice-captaincy role for the tour,” he told the newspaper.

“At first, I was a bit shocked because I was never in that vice-captaincy capacity. Not even in a Barbados team. I was never a vice-captain, and I thought there were players in the team that has held those positions.

“I captained West Indies ‘A’ in a One-day series previously, so I guess they took it from there to nominate me for the position.”

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board president, “Azim Bassarath has backed experienced left-hander Darren Bravo for the post of vice captain”.

He will not be too happy with selectors today.
However, Chase is almost a sure pick on the team, so this might have influenced selectors decision.

Congrats to Chase, he is a serious person and he plays the game responsible. I thought that Bravo would have been the person next in line, but I guess all the absences might have worked against him.
