Holder wants for the team to show improvement before the year ends
West Indies skipper Jason Holder talks about the team’s loss to India in the last Test match of India’s tour. The team has not won against India in Tests for 17 years. India also dominated the earlier series of the tour, winning over West Indies in the ODI and T20I matches. Holder admits that a quick fix will not solve the team’s problems.
‘The situation we are in the Caribbean…we are not really spoiled for choices in terms of batsmen coming through. We’ve got to put things in place and make sure we keep developing players and make sure players are doing the right things to be successful’, explained Holder. He also stated that the team needs more experienced players in the future.
West Indies will play one more Test match this year against Afghanistan. Despite the team’s loss to India, Holder still believes that the team will perform better in Test cricket. ‘I think we have enough in this Test group to put up better performances. We have match-winners with the ball and one or two bright spots in batting, what we need is consistency’, Holder said.
The West Indies Test captain was the only batsman in the team to score a fifty across the Test series of India’s tour. The one-off Test match of West Indies and Afghanistan is part of the latter’s tour that kicks off in early November. Test cricket is one of three cricket formats played today.
