Caribbean Cricket team skipper Jason Holder has admitted that the exclusion of all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard is a crucial loss for the West Indies team. West Indies lost their first warm-up match against England by 8 wickets moments ago.
Caribbean Media Corporation reported, about the Jamaican’s 1st official practice match against England and Jason Holder said the duo were seasoned crusaders but was quick to focus on that players selection remained the repeal of selectors. Dwayne Bravo, the most experienced all-rounder in the Caribbean, was dumped as captain and replaced by Holder.
He said that not having the duo would be a major loss to any team but it is beyond their control and they have to admit it and move on. As he said before, they are 2 players, who have performed well in world cricket. At this time they are not there and that is beyond their control. So they have to admit that and move on.
In the previous month both players were excluded for the 5 match series against South Africa and were also missed the ICC World Cup campaign. The decision to drop Pollard and Bravo led to asserts of victimization, particularly against the backdrop of the players’ parts in the stranded tour of India last October.
Most of the attention as hoped has come to rest on superstar opener Chris Gayle, as two senior players out of the World Cup. Holder said the unit was expecting for his return to form.
Holder was quoted saying: “No doubt Chris is a big player for any team he’s played for. He’s been one of the most prolific batsmen for us in the last few years. So it’s just for Chris to play himself, be his normal self and just get the best out of him.“
