Capturing the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup could revive the spirit of the West Indies people and the game, says Jason Holder.

The West Indies Test and One-Day International (ODI) captain was speaking on Tuesday at Kensington Oval, one of the stops on the Nissan Trophy Tour, which showcases the grand prize in the build-up to next year’s 50-overs tournament.

“It would mean a lot, not only to us as players but also to the Caribbean people,” Holder said.

“Obviously, we have been plagued by a number of negative things in the light of West Indies cricket over the last couple years, so it would be something very positive,” he said. (RG)
