Port of Spain, Aug 1: Trinbago Knight Riders will stick with veteran all-rounder Kieron Pollard to lead the team in the 2020 edition of the Caribbean Premier League.

Pollard led the team to play-offs last time around after regular captain Dwayne Bravo missed the tournament due to injury. Bravo had earlier led the team to back-to-back CPL titles in 2017 and 2018.

The management, however, seems to be happy will Pollard leading the side, who is currently the skipper of West Indies T20I team as well.

"We are happy that Kieron who is the West Indies captain is our leader at TKR," Venky Mysore, the CEO of the team as well as Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, told T&T Guardian. "The champion DJ Bravo has been coming to me year after year and asking me to give someone else the captaincy because he wants to just concentrate on playing and enjoying the game. I always told him not until I am ready and that time has come and he is very happy to play under Pollard."

The 2020 edition of the CPL will take place in Trinidad & Tobago from August 18 and September 20. The tournament will have a full season and will feature overseas and Caribbean players. IANS
