But now he’s a full time white ball captain. It’s going to be important that he has a vision along with the coach and investing is there are a lot of issues that did happen.

He’s got to find a way to obviously understand those issues and figure out a way to sort them out and then move forward with the current team that he’s got.”  karthik added

  1. Playing the Netherlands is an absolute excellent trigger for Pooran as young captain, it will give him the opportunity to put some captain qualities in place.
    The Netherlands never won against the West Indies which would be the psychological edge the WI start the game with.
    Pooran and his men should capitalise with the edge they have.
    Best Wishes.
