Dwayne Bravo has replaced Darren Sammy as the West Indies ODI captain for the Champions Trophy. Sammy will continue to lead them in Tests and Twenty20 internationals.
“Our results in Tests and T20s have been showing consistent improvement, and Sammy deserves every kudos for the work he has done in leading and moulding the team in these formats,” chairman of the selection panel, Clyde Butts, said. “We remain confident in his leadership in these formats and will recommend that he continues as the captain for Test and T20 cricket. However, our ODI results have not been as strong, and we believe that it is best that we freshen the leadership of the team in this format.
