ICC World Cup: Looking forward to quarterfinal against Kiwis, says Jason Holder
Following their International Cricket Council World Cup Pool B match victory over the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Sunday, West Indies captain Jason Holder is looking forward to their quarterfinal fight against New Zealand on 21st March.
The West Indies snatched the 4th position from Pool B with 6 points, the same as Ireland. But the Jamaican team went through to the super-eight stage on better run-rate. They will compete Black Caps at the Westpac Stadium.
He said that New Zealand is surely playing quality cricket. The Jamaican side are looking forward to the clash against them.
Selecting to bowl first on Sunday, the West Indies started with a blast as man of the match Holder struck thrice in quick succession, removing UAE’s Andri Berrenger, Krishanchandran Karate and Amjad Ali.
Holder said at the post-match presentation ceremony that he is extremely impressed with their boys about how they played the match. It was a must-win situation for them and they were able to accomplish it.
The 23 years old said that the ball came out really well for him at the start, also got some good bounce. He just concentrated on bowling in the right areas and that paid off quiet well.
Speaking about how the wicket behaved at the start of the innings, he added that it was a wee bit slow, but he was happy to get some movement.
The captain was well supported by pace spearhead Jerome Taylor who claimed three wickets for 36 runs.
