Member of Parliament for Couva South, Rudy Indarsingh, is extending congratulations to his constituent and the new captain of the West Indies ODI and T20 Teams, Nicholas Pooran.

MP Indarsingh says his appointment as Captain of our great regional team marks a new chapter of possibilities for him, his teammates and cricket aficionados throughout the region.

In a media release on Tuesday, MP Indarsingh said Nicholas has distinguished himself through a young but exciting career in international cricket, and there is both high hope for and high expectations of his captaincy.

Hailing from Derry Lane, Mc Bean Village, Couva, Calcutta #1, he began his cricketing journey at Mc Bean Sports Club in Couva, over the years.

He had associations with the Kumar Rampat Cricket Academy which has help develop his all-round cricketing and leadership skills and is now headlining across the world.

Nicholas’ appointment as captain is a testimony to the confidence he has inspired through his skill and humility.

MP Indarsingh also thanked outgoing skipper Kieron Pollard for his immediate past leadership of the regional squad, and hope that his experience can be used to as a foundation for future successes of the T20 team.

MP Indarsingh said we will be paying keen attention to the ICC Men’s World Cup 2022 and the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

Mr Indarsingh called on the country to seize Nicholas’ appointment as captain as an opportunity for all to rally around the West Indies, and hope that this will lead to the much anticipated rise of the West Indies to the glory it held in the 1970’s /1980’s golden era of West Indies cricket.
