WI play for pride


Share post:

WEST INDIES are seeking redemption, England are on a quest for a 3-0 blowout. It may be a dead rubber but there is much to play for in today’s third ONEINDIG One-Day International at Kensington Oval.

Speaking at team practice yesterday morning, hometown skipper Jason Holder wants nothing more than to erase the memories of the opening two defeats in Antigua while Jason Roy and Adil Rashid say England are bent on maintaining their winning sequence.

“Definitely, we are focused for the game. A lot to play for. I think every point is crucial going into the World Cup qualification and that is the way we are seeing this game. A win here would be valuable, so we need to pick up points. We have Pakistan next, and India later in the year and those are all teams that are ranked above us, so we know the importance of winning every game,” Holder said. (MK)
