West Indies captain Jason Holder felt that there is a huge disparity between the Caribbean’s first class cricket and the international cricket.  Holder said this after being humiliated by 237 runs against India in the third Test of the series  in Gros Islet, St. Lucia.

”It is going to be difficult. Test match cricket is very different from our first-class cricket at this point in time. I have had the privilege to play first-class cricket and I’ve also had the privilege to play Test cricket and I can see a vast disparity between the two. It is a situation where many of us coming to international cricket and are trying to learn on our job. It is definitely not easy, but it is something that we are faced with and I hope the guys can learn quickly,” Holder was as quoted s saying by EspnCricinfo.

In reply to 346 targets on day 5, West Indies were all out for 108. Darren Bravo was the only batsman who showed resistance and crosses the 20 run mark. In the first innings, West Indies all out for 225. At one point of the match, they were at a comfortable position as they started their day with 203 for 3.

“Hope that our guys’ bodies are accustomed to the workloads of international cricket because it is far different from first-class cricket. For instance, you get a first-class game where a fast bowler hardly bowls a number of overs we have bowled in this series. For the last five to 10 years we have had spinners dominating first-class cricket in terms of wickets taken. So it is a transition that we have to try to open up and adjust to as quickly as possible. It is by no means easy and sometimes we don’t make it easy for ourselves,” the 23-year-old lanky all-rounder Holder said.

The final Test of the series will start today at Queen’s Park Oval.
