Former West Indies head coach Ottis Gibson believes that Jason Holder should not be captaining the national team.
Gibson’s comments come after the West Indies made up for their four-wicket loss to Ireland by thrashing Pakistan by 150 runs in the World Cup on Saturday.
“I think [the] captaincy is too much for him at this point in time,” Gibson told Sky Sports. “I know Jason and he has got the character to elevate himself to captain over time and loves taking responsibility but he has to work on his game at the moment.
“To do that and make sure he is casting an eye in the nets to see how people are performing, sitting in selection meetings, picking players and dealing with media [is difficult], so I am surprised [chairman of selectors] Clive Lloyd has burdened him with the captaincy.
“Darren Sammy will help him as that’s his character but I just hope the other seniors give him the support he needs and go to him rather than wait for him to come to them, as he needs a lot of help.”
