The 32-year-old has been a part of the West Indies team for over a decade now.

The decision comes after West Indies' finished ninth among the 10 participating teams at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England earlier this year.

Pollard's first assignment as a limited-overs captain will begin from November 5, when Windies face Afghanistan, for a full-series in Dehradun.

Jason Holder will revert to the Test captaincy alone as Pollard takes over from him in 50-over cricket and from Carlos Brathwaite in T20.

Not to forget that Pollard has not played an ODI for almost 4 years.

In the aftermath of a disappointing performance at the World Cup and a complete whitewash against India barring the abandoned ODI (washed out due to rain), Cricket West Indies (CWI) have reportedly chose to sack the existing captains- Jason Holder (ODI) and Carlos Brathwaite (T20I) and have named Kieron Pollard as captain in limited-overs cricket.

L'agent de défenseur de 34 ans n'a donc pas écarté définitivement l'idée d'un départ de l'ancien du Milan AC. Paulo Tonietto a ajouté: " S'il peut partir dans un autre club à partir de janvier? Nous verrons.


The release said the Selection Task Force recommended the immediate introduction of "red ball" and "white ball" captains to support a long-term strategy to focus on the different formats of worldwide cricket. Holder was named the captain of the side then.

On recognising the contribution of Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite, Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams said: "I would like to place on record the significant contributions and leadership that both Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite have provided the West Indies "white ball" teams and we look forward to both players focusing on their own games and enjoy the freedom of playing with the reduced responsibility". Now, it has been learned that Kieron Pollard is set to take charge of the national limited-overs teams. Following their disastrous performance at the showpiece ODI event, West Indies also suffered defeats to India in a T20I series (0-3) and ODI series (0-2) which they hosted. "During CPL (in the previous seasons), he was the best with the bat", Richards said.

Less than two months after the end of the World Cup, Pollard will now lead West Indies in two formats.
