Holder confident


CAPTAIN Jason Holder says he does not foresee Barbados Pride experiencing any major issues with acclimatising to new conditions in Antigua for their Regional Super50 semi-final against Leeward Islands Hurricanes on Thursday.

Pride, the tournament favourites, hosted Group B where they won seven of their eight games to finish top on 33 points, five clear of the second placed Jamaica Scorpions, who also advanced to the final four.

Holder, the West Indies Test and One-Day captain, said they did not anticipate any surprises with the switch from Barbados to Coolidge Cricket Ground in St John’s.

“I don’t see it as a big challenge. We’ve been seeing a few of the games on TV. We’re obviously professional athletes and many of us play for the West Indies team as well, so we have to adjust,” Holder said. (CMC)
