Powell being tipped for Windies T20 vice-captaincy

Radio Jamaica Sports understands that Jamaican all-rounder Rovman Powell is being tipped to be the vice-captain for the West Indies T-20 team.

Shai Hope was named as Nicholas Pooran's deputy for the 50-over format, but no name was mentioned as vice-captain for the Twenty20 Internationals.

Powell has the experience of captaining the West Indies in three One Day Internationals on a tour to Bangladesh in December 2018, and in recent years, led the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premeir League.

In a recent virtual press briefing, CWI's Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams had indicated that given there was no immediate series, they opted not to issue a name, but they will before the next series.

Bangladesh is expected to tour the Caribbean in June-July, and three T20s are carded as part of the tour.

Before that, the West Indies will have 50-over tours to the Netherlands, and Pakistan as part of the ICC Super League as they seek direct qualification to next year's World Cup in India.

Powell is a member of the Windies squad to tour both countries. The West Indies who are two-time World T20 champions, will have to play an additional qualifying round against the likes of Scotland and Namibia to make the Super 12s at the men's T20 World Cup later this year in Australia.
