Holder: Windies in a tough phase

KINGSTON – Embattled West Indies captain Jason Holder conceded yesterday his inexperienced side were enduring a difficult period, after they suffered a seven-wicket thrashing at the hands of Pakistan on the last day of the opening cricket Test at Sabina Park.

Behind by 121 runs on first innings, the Windies started the second day on 93 for four but failed in their bid for survival as they were dismissed for a paltry 152.

Pakistan then scored the 32 runs required for victory to condemn West Indies to their 11th defeat in their last 15 Tests, with just one victory to show in that period.

“It’s a tough phase. It is very tough but it is what it is,” Holder said moments following the Windies defeat. (CMC)
