- West Indies made invincible progress in three consecutive winning series
- Nicholas Pooran is captaining the Windies team for the first time
The stars of West Indies wicket-keeper batsman Nicholas Pooran are on a high these days. Pooran was given the command of West Indies for the first time and he did wonders. Under his captaincy, West Indies have won the five-match series against Australia. West Indies have managed to take the lead in the series by winning the first three matches. After winning the first series as captain, Pooran opened a big secret and called the dashing all-rounder Kieron Pollard his mentor. He also challenged the Kangaroos for the last two T20Is, saying that the West Indies team will go into the series with the intention of cleaning it up.
‘We executed our plan well’
After the third T20, Nicholas Pooran said it was a top game. We keep asking for improvement and we did better in the third T20. We executed our plan well with bat and ball. Chris Gayle (67 runs in 38 balls with the help of 4 fours and 7 sixes) batted brilliantly. He is the greatest batsman of T20. I am very happy for them. After his innings, the dressing room is going to be even more special. At the same time, on winning his first three matches as captain, Pooran said that I am very grateful and it is something that I had not dreamed of. This has been possible only because of the players present in our team.
‘Pollard wants to see me do well’
Pooran said that this is a special group of people and I cannot expect better T20 cricketers from them around me. There is no dearth of experience and knowledge in the dressing room. Thanks to all for supporting me. Pooran further said that I want to thank Kieran Pollard and the senior players also for their support. Pollard is my mentor and I have a special feeling for him. He is someone who always wants to see me do well. He shared a lot of knowledge with me in the last few days. He also gave advice on making decisions under pressure. Regarding the upcoming two T20 matches against Australia, Pooran said that we want to achieve consistency. Match three is nothing. We should try to win all five games.
