INDIA TOUR OF WEST INDIES- Jason Holder, the Windies captain, was a relieved man after his team surprised India by 11 runs in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) at North Sound, Antigua, to keep their chances of leveling the series alive. With the final ODI to be played on Friday (July 6), India now lead the five-match series 2-1, after the first match was washed out in Port-of-Spain, last Friday.
Kesrick Williams, who bowled the crucial 49th over, conceding just two runs and taking the massive wicket of MS Dhoni, also came under special praise from his captain. “I want to make a special mention of Kesrick Williams – showed a lot of maturity in his second game, showed a lot of heart as well,” the captain said.
“Throughout the series we’ve spoken about taking new-ball wickets. India’s top order has been doing well” said Holder. “It’s all about getting Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat (Kohli) as soon as possible,” he added.
