West Indies hero in the five-match T20 series against England, Jason Holder, was full of praise for his teammates and looked motivated and passionate ahead of the West Indies tour to India.
Holder, on Monday, with an interview with ESPNcricinfo, said that West Indies is building something special and the enthusiastic togetherness in the dressing room he has been feeling since a couple of series is something scarce. He hasn’t felt this way during his nine-year international career.
On Sunday, Holder was named the man of the series after his stunning performance against the series decider versus England. In the most crucial match of the series, Holder created history by taking four wickets in 4 balls. He became the first West Indies male cricketer to take a hat-trick in T20 internationals. Also, Holder took 15 wickets in the series against England, which is the most by a bowler in a bilateral series.
Holder also said about his teammates, “For me, this is the closest I’ve felt a group be in a very long time. Honest to God, the energy I felt from the meetings, most contributions I’ve ever seen in a West Indies dressing room.”
Holder talked about the shock Team incurred after a 2-1 series loss against Ireland. To rise from a 2-1 series defeat to winning a series against the world’s best, England, showed the side’s real character and players’ grit and determination to keep moving forward. He said that the series defeat against Ireland made the team come together and pull themselves up to come out with a big performance against England.
