In a move aimed at improving West Indies' standing in limited overs cricket, Kieron Pollard has been appointed West Indies' white ball captain with immediate effect by Cricket West Indies.

Pollard, who is 32, was recently recalled to the T20I squad in the home series against India, but has not played an ODI since 2016. However, West Indies' poor showing in the World Cup, where Holder's team won just two matches in the 10-team event, finishing just above Afghanistan, led to CWI setting up a task force to revamp the selection process including recommending appointing a new white ball captain.

Pollard said he was keen to lead West Indies and make the fans believe in the team. "I'm truly honoured to be appointed captain of the West Indies and I would like to thank Cricket West Indies' Board of directors for placing their faith and confidence in me,"

 Pollard was quoted as saying in the media release. "I can't wait to work with the coaching staff and players as we start building towards future World Cups and give the fans more reasons to get behind the team."
