PORT OF SPAIN – Newly appointed West Indies white-ball captain, Kieron Pollard, has reassured the region that insularity in selection will be eradicated during his tenure.

The Trinidadian will take on his first assignment next month when West Indies take on Afghanistan in India in three Twenty20 Internationals and three One-Day Internationals.

And after participating in his first selection meeting, Pollard said he was focused on ensuring that performance and not nationality would determine the composition of teams going forward.

“One of the major things we [selectors] talked about is the insularity that has been going on in the Caribbean and it is something we want to [stamp out],” Pollard said here in a wide-ranging radio interview. (CMC)
