Bishop and Dujon back Pollard


Share post:

New West Indies white ball captain Kieron Pollard has the unequivocal backing of former Test stars Jeffrey Dujon and Ian Bishop.

Both Dujon, the most accomplished wicketkeeper/batsman in the history of West Indies’ cricket and Bishop, one of the best fast bowlers of his era, are of the view it is time for a change.

Dujon told THE NATION that the time had come to move in a new direction, adding that Pollard will bring a more dynamic and aggressive approach than Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite, the outgoing 50-overs and 20-overs captains.

“Holder has had plenty of opportunity to prove himself and I don’t think he has. If we are going to move forward, we are going to need a difference tactically and more aggressive leadership,” he said. (MK)
