Nicholas Pooran leaves the post of captain of the West Indies Captain
The West Indies failed the T20 World Cup in Australia: the “maroon” could not make it to the second stage, losing the competition to Zimbabwe, Ireland and Scotland. Such an unsuccessful performance of the team came as some surprise — more was expected from the West Indies. And after a serious failure, the team leader made a bold decision: Nikolas Pooran leaves the post of captain of the West Indies in white-ball formats.
Recall that Nicholas became the captain of the West Indies national team in ODI and T20 formats after the resignation of Kieron Pollard. Pooran has already commented on his decision. The player noted that he does not see himself as the captain of the West Indies team right now.
“I’ve been thinking a lot about my captaincy lately. I took this role with great pride, and I can say with full confidence that I gave the West Indies 100% of my capabilities. Now I feel that I need to give up an important role to another player,” said Nicholas Pooran.
Recall that the next time we will see the West Indies national team in the white-ball format on a tour of South Africa in March 2023.
