PORT OF SPAIN – Newly-appointed white-ball captain Kieron Pollard says performance and not age will be the ultimate consideration for the selection of teams going forward.
Pollard also believes young talented players like Shimron Hetmyer have been disadvantaged in the past by a lack of senior players in West Indies squads.
In recent years, seasoned campaigners like Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Darren Sammy and Pollard – all over 30 – have been phased out of the selection frame with the focus placed on incorporating young players.
Pollard said, however, that the new selection panel of lead selector Roger Harper, head coach Phil Simmons and Miles Bascombe, intended to focus on the assets players brought to the team rather than simply age. (CMC)
