‘No problem’ with Kraigg as captain
BARBADOS Pride head coach Emmerson Trotman says he has no problem with Kraigg Brathwaite leading the team for the Regional Super50 Cup ahead of Jason Holder, who was at the helm of the triumphant side last year.
“Both Kraigg and Jason are professionals, they have respect for each other and I expect we will blend as one nice unit. This situation doesn’t bother me at all.
“I have a say in the selection of the team, but the decision on the captaincy is dealt with at the top. It has nothing to do with me. Both men have a lot to offer and it does not matter who the captain is,” Trotman said.
Holder, 26, will be available for just a few matches before heading off to Zimbabwe for the ICC World Cup qualifiers in March, as the West Indies look to book their spot in the 2019 one-day showpiece in England.
However, it is still surprising that Holder is not captaining the team he led to the championship last season. (MK)
