On Sun­day, the T&T Guardian broke the news of the board's de­ci­sion to ap­point Pol­lard to lead both the ODI and T20 teams.

The 32-year-old T&T play­er, who is the cap­tain of the Caribbean Pre­mier League (CPL) team Trin­ba­go Knight Rid­ers (TKR), re­places Ja­son Hold­er, who pre­vi­ous­ly led the one-day unit and takes over from Car­los Brath­waite in the short­est for­mat.

Pol­lard, 32, large­ly a T20 spe­cial­ist, av­er­ages 25 from 101 One-Day In­ter­na­tion­als with three cen­turies but has not rep­re­sent­ed West In­dies in the for­mat in near­ly three years.

In T20s, Pol­lard, of Queen's Park Crick­et Club, has played 62 match­es with an av­er­age of 21 with three fifties.
