Heroic Holder

Date:

Share post:

NORTH SOUND – Jason Holder gathered the ingredients for a colossal and classical maiden century here yesterday that ensured a draw in the first cricket Test match of the Wisden Series and maintained England’s winless run in Antigua.

Identified by chairman of selectors Clive Lloyd as a future, longtime leader in West Indies cricket, Holder’s masterful, unbeaten 103 saw the regional side finish on 350/7 chasing a highly improbable 438 to win at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

A consistently large crowd that converged here all week with an England fan bias, suddenly swelled with West Indian flags, not outnumbering the English, but certainly the local presence was heavier felt and Holder’s Man Of The Match innings took centre stage.

Please read the full story in today’s Saturday Sun, or in the eNATION edition.
