For Dwayne “DJ” Bravo, the decision to make Kieron Pollard the West Indies’ white ball captain is a “brave” move, but the right one.
Bravo was present yesterday when Cricket West Indies officially confirmed his friend’s appointment as One-Day and T20 skipper at the Hilton Trinidad. Pollard has not played One-Day cricket for the Windies in nearly three years, but Bravo, a former skipper himself said the change was necessary and spot-on.
“For the last five years, this is the lowest we ever see West Indies cricket, especially in the white ball format,” Bravo declared, before saying of Pollard, “He’s a leader, not just a captain. That is what West Indies need, leadership...Hopefully he gets a good run, a good chance to build the team he wants and people allow him to take the team in the direction he wants it and give him that respect.”
