Holder tells team to stay hungry
SHARJAH – Captain Jason Holder has urged his West Indies side to “stay hungry” after they broke a prolonged slump to beat Pakistan by five wickets in the third and final Test yesterday and post their first Test win in 19 months.
The all-rounder said the Windies had the makings of a very good unit but stressed it was important to build on the Sharjah success and begin to produce more consistent performances.
Holder, who was presiding over his first Test win, also called for the unit to be kept together as he believed they had the potential to become a dominant Test force.
“This is a very good group of guys. We’ve shown glimpses that we can compete; we’ve shown glimpses we have what it takes to compete at this level,” said Holder, who turns 25 tomorrow.” (CMC)
