Only time will tell what will happen. Being the captain of the West Indies is a massive job. Pollard and Pooran showed a lot of promise when they started. However, it seems like their performances suffered along the way. A good captain leads from the front. This is why Sammy used wisdom and let the better players shine, while he used his man management skills to get the best out of the team. smile

With that attitude, one is likely to get players to give their all for you since they will tend to trust you.

yuh know brian lara average is 58 when leading the west indies....and his sides had moderate successes, most of which he single handedly engineered(he had walsh and ambrose for two years as cappo before they retired as well) and devastating failures(quite a few of which he scored hundreds and double hundreds in and still ended up on the losing side). thank god he had an individualistic streak because his average would have gone in the same direction as the team. WI captaincy is a poisoned chalice. Managing the personalities and some very insular administrators is a fate i wish on not even my dog

are you saying that the captain should be the worst player on the team?

Being captain of the West Indies is difficult but not impossible as you seem to be making out.
What is required is a smart, honest,hard working captain, who the players can trust.

Well it's true ain't it big grin. Sammy taught Pollard a lesson or two about winning. A champion not only in cricket, but in character.

well that must mean lara and gale are the only smart cappos since 95. They are the only ones with major achievements in the test arena. Lara beating SL(with Vaas and Murali) and drawing a series with the world's best team in Australia. I don't count the wisden trophy win in 98 because that england side was awful. Gayle with our first Wisden trophy win in 11 years against a very good england team (containing Harmison, Flintoff, Anderson, Sidebottom, Swann and Panesar; not to mention pietersen, strauss, cook, prior etc) and our best showing in Australia since 97, a series we would have won if not for poor umpiring. Sammy beat a weak and divided NZ team that was barely competitive and holder beat a weak English side in 2019. Sammy won with a great side and the t20 template pioneered by Daren Ganga's TT red force....he even took using the leggie in the powerplay from ganga, not to mention the sacrificing singles at the table of big hits.....straight out of Trinidad's CLT20 2009 run that caught every team in the competition by surprise.

The reason Dukes that i don't respect Sammy as captain is that he was willing to captain a team purged of its best players, a team he wasn't even close to making(aside from the 3rd string 2009 team captained by pretty boy floyd) and only complained when cameron's excesses personally affected him. It screams selfishness and selfish ambition and that could never be the hallmarks of a good leader in anything, except probably at Apple. Steve Jobs was the same way but he was very successful.

Cricket is the only team sport which use a captain as the on play manager, any west indies captain having an unskilled technical manager like Phil and his cohorts will fail.
The role is obsolete, I have been saying it for almost 4 years.
