Bajans ready to show pride


Share post:

CAPTAIN OF THE Barbados Pride Jason Holder is confident his team has what it takes to reclaim the title when they face Guyana Jaguars in the West Indies Cricket Board’s Regional Super50 competition.

And while Holder has admitted the team has not played One-Day cricket at Kensington Oval in a while, he expects the crowd support to give the home team the advantage.

“A lot of the guys are really looking forward to that. they’re quite excited, and I will expect good crowds at the games. We have avid cricket fans here in Barbados and people who really adore cricket, so we should have decent turnouts.

“We have an experienced team with lots of international players. I wouldn’t say there is any added pressure at the moment. We’re all professional athletes, accustomed playing in front crowds, albeit our own home crowd. It’s just a matter of us relaxing, being focused and prepared to do the job for Barbados. (RA)
