DEFYING THE ODDS, Jason Holder delivered a match-saving century to save the West Indies from defeat against England in the opening Test of the three-match series at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.

The imposing Holder scored a superb unbeaten 103, his maiden first-class hundred, in an innings spanning 216 minutes, and with help from Denesh Ramdin and Kemar Roach, guided the team to safety.

West Indies,set 438 for victory, finished on 350 for seven, a performance that will boost the team’s morale for the second Test in Grenada starting next Tuesday.
