Holder stands firm
CAPTAIN JASON HOLDER struck his fifth Test half-century but only 69 balls were possible as rain wrecked the second day of the opening Test between West Indies and Pakistan yesterday.
Heavy rain at Sabina Park brought an abrupt end to the already truncated day’s play at 3:05 p.m. after just 55 minutes of action. West Indies, having resumed on 244 for seven reached 278 for nine, with Holder unbeaten on 55.
He faced 69 deliveries and struck seven fours and two sixes.
Wet spots in the outfield and on the bowlers’ run-up had earlier forced the abandonment of the opening session, pushing back the start to an hour and a half after the scheduled lunch break.
