Hard hitting West Indies batsman Keiron Pollard says the atmosphere in the team camp has been fantastic since his introduction to the national side.

Pollard, who was recently elevated to the post of vice captain, has described the mood among the players as fantastic.

“Since making my entry into the West Indies team, this period has been the best not only in terms of results on the field but also off the field as well” said Pollard.

“The players are playing for each other, the mood is great and we have a bunch of guys who are happy to be representing the people of the Caribbean.”

The West Indies cricket team has experienced a purple patch over the past few months winning their Test series at home against New Zealand 2-0, as well as their T20 series and 50-overs series as well.

Only Sunday, they completed a sweep of Bangladesh in their Test series 2-0 and will now move on to the limited overs tournament, and the lone T20 clash.

“I am very excited to be in this role, supporting the captain Darren Sammy,” he said.

“He has done a great job in motivating the players and getting them to play for him and I am looking to support him 100 percent, in order to make sure we continue to get good results.”

West Indies are set to play Bangladesh in five One-Day Internationals and one Twenty20 starting Friday.
