Kraigg Brathwaite has been dropped as West Indies Test vice-captain in order for him to be able to concentrate on improving his batting, CWI chief of selectors Roger Harper has revealed.

Brathwaite was replaced as vice-captain by all-rounder Roston Chase and batsman Nicholas Pooran ahead of the start of the team’s tour of New Zealand.  The opener, who was first appointed the Test vice-captain in 2015, had averaged 21 from his last 15 Tests heading into the England series.

“We thought it important at this time to allow Kraigg Brathwaite, who has been the vice-captain for a while, to just pay a little more attention, to focus a little more on his batting,” Harper told members of the media from the team’s training base in New Zealand.

Harper is being diplomatic, he is saying to Kraigg that he is no longer a sure pick, a 21 runs average over the last 15 Tests is poor, Devon Smith could give the team those numbers.

The real point is that Kraigg is the losingist Test Captain ever. His figures are even worse than Trump's electoral challenges to date.
