“…he (Pollard) will have to build a team…playing against India in India is always a tough proposition, and he must leave here not necessarily winning, but he must leave here a better team after this tournament,” Lara said at an event.

‘Kieron Pollard is the right person’

In the ODI series against Afghanistan, under Pollard’s captaincy, the West Indies first time won the ODI series after five years. However, the champions of the last T20 World Cup can not win the T20I series against Afghanistan (lost by 2-1 margin).

Lara showed faith in the captaincy of Pollard. He marks it as a good decision to appoint Pollard as the captain in keeping mind the T20 World Cup 2020.

“He (Pollard) has easily gained the respect of his team-mates, and he can move forward. There is a (T20) World Cup in under 12 months, and you are looking for the right person, someone who can keep the ground running. He has that experience to do so. It is a good decision, but it is still going to be an uphill battle,” explained the 50-year-old.
