LUCKNOW – West Indies may be ranked eighth in Test cricket right now, but captain Jason Holder believes that by the time the World Test Championship is done, they have a “realistic” chance of being in the top four.

Holder led West Indies to a nine-wicket win against Afghanistan at the Ekana Stadium, with the match completed in just over two days.

Holder himself hastened the end on the morning of the third day on Friday, making short work of Afghanistan after they had resumed on an overnight score of 109 for seven on Friday.

They were bowled out for 120, with Holder picking up all three wickets, and West Indies chased their target of 31 in just 6.2 overs. (ESPNCricinfo)
