Shai Hope has been recommended as the vice-captain of the West Indies ODI team. 

CWI’s Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams said, “We believe Nicholas is ready for the challenge of leading our white-ball teams given his experience, performances, and the respect he has within the playing group.”

He added saying that “the selection panel believes that Nicholas has matured as a player and were impressed with his leadership of both teams when Kieron Pollard had been absent. The experience he has gathered playing in various franchise leagues around the world was also a factor in the decision to recommend him for the T20 captaincy.”
