West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard has been named as the new captain of their one-day international and Twenty20 teams, the country's cricket board (CWI) said on Monday.
Pollard, who has not played an ODI for West Indies since October 2016, replaces Jason Holder at the helm. Holder, who led the team at the last two 50-over World Cups, will continue to lead the side in test cricket.
"We believe Kieron Pollard is the right person at the right time now to lead the West Indies team in white ball cricket," CWI President Ricky Skerritt said at a news conference.
"Jason Holder is a very important force and he is still going to be our red ball captain."
Pollard will begin his captaincy by travelling to India for a series against Afghanistan. They will play three T20s followed by three ODI matches in November.
