West Indies slam 'crippling' Jason Holder ban ahead of third England Test

West Indies slam 'crippling' Jason Holder ban ahead of third England Test

"We will of course abide by the ruling, but have to wonder if such punitive action at a pivotal stage of the series is good for cricket", he said. They bowled out England under 200 in both the innings of the 2nd Test. Roach was among the highest wicket-takers once again as his team went on to win the Test by 10 wickets and took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match Test series. "What a shame if the series is remembered not for the sparkling play of the reinvigorated West Indies players but for a crippling decision made by a rule that ought to be modified", ESPNcricinfo quoted Cameron, as saying.

Cameron advised Holder to use the break to recuperate for the pending five-match One-Day International series.

But he is struggling in this series after scores of four, 22, seven and seven against West Indies, dipping his career average below 50. And then to get out leaving one second time was very frustrating.' Now he knows the importance of what is anything but a dead rubber.

Critics argue that forcing the team's captain to sit out is exactly what test cricket does not need in its struggle to stay relevant in the Caribbean.

Priyanka Chopra added Jonas to her name because of this reason
Even so, Chopra Jonas said: "I don't take away my identity". "I didn't realize it was that much of a big deal until I did it". After stressing out about finding the ideal location, it was her husband's sweet suggestion that sealed the deal for India.

Holder, 27, third on the charts behind Bangladesh's Shakin-al-Hasan and India's Ravindra Jadeja at the start of the game, leaped to the top position following his unbeaten double century against England in the opening Test at Kensington Oval last month.

The match ended in three days with variable bounce evident throughout; however, several batsmen were struck on the hands or body and a couple more received unplayable deliveries.

"With Jason Holder missing out on the last test, Kraigg Brathwaite will take the reins of captaincy", chairman of selectors, Courtney Browne said.
