Nicholas Pooran: The absence of senior players in the West Indies squad announced for the T20 World Cup 2022 is a matter of discussion, as the team does not include legends like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell. Now captain Nicholas Pooran has given a big statement on this issue.
Nicholas Pooran said that he believes that the presence of star players is not a guarantee of success. He said that ‘we do not have big names, but we have formed a team, which is very important. When these people come together and play for each other, all will be well and well.
What did Puran say?
Nicholas Pooran said in his statement that “I believe there should be a balance between experience and young players. You must have seen that when we won two World Cups, we had many famous players, but last year also we had many famous players in our team and we didn’t even qualify.
Australia team example
Citing the example of Australia team, Nicholas Pooran said that Australia won the title last year and they didn’t have many famous players then, but they proved that they have a team that can win the World Cup.
Let us tell you that this time West Indies are not being considered as a strong contender for the title, as 12 of their players who participated in the World Cup last year are not included in the current team.
