AS the West Indies players gear-up for battle beginning next week against their New Zealand counterparts, the selectors have elevated Nicholas Poor and Roston Chase to positions of Vice Captain for the T20 and Test matches respectively.
Commenting on the announcement, Roger Harper, CWI’s Lead Selector, described Chase as a very experienced player who would offer support to the current leadership of the side.All-rounder Chase, 28, has so far played 35 Test matches, scoring five centuries and collecting three five-wicket hauls with his off-spinners; while wicket-keeper/batsman Pooran, 25.
“Roston Chase has been appointed vice-captain of the West Indies Test Team for this tour of New Zealand. He is an experienced player who is tactically aware and very purposeful in his approach to the game. He is readily willing to offer advice and discuss ideas with his fellow players and the coaches and I think will offer good leadership support to captain Jason Holder.
