Windies skipper Jason Holder has urged the players, management, and the selectors should work collectively following their whitewash against India.
Meanwhile, Windies lost by an innings and 272 runs at Rajkot while he suffered a 10 wicket defeat in the second innings. Speaking at the post-match press conference, Jason Holder seemed clueless regarding the current situation of the side.
He also urged all the stakeholder of this side to work in together to find the solutions of the problems.
“Honestly, it’s hard to take it. I am trying to understand the reasons why it is happening. It’s a case where we all need to put our heads together — the management, the selectors and the players. The onus must be on the players and we must be responsible for our actions,” said Jason Holder.
“We got to come together a little bit more and find ways and solutions to deal with the problems that we have at the moment,” he added.
Speaking about the positives from this two-match Test series for Windies, Jason Holder spoke about Roston Chase and Sherman Lewis.
“It’s a tough series and we didn’t play our best cricket. We look back in the last two years and we have some good results. India is the No.1 team in the world and we expected to be pushed by them. They’re quality cricket side, especially in their own backyard. We all saw some positive performances from Roston Chase. I thought Sherman was awesome,” he continued.
Batting has been an issue
Jason Holder admitted that batting has been a key area of concern for the Windies side for quite some time now. They have clearly struggled to put runs on the board except for the first innings at Hyderabad.
He also noted that the top five batsmen need to raise their hands and score runs for their team,
“You can look and honestly say we didn’t put enough runs on the board. Quite for some time now, we’ve been relatively inconsistent and that has really let us down in the recent past. We haven’t been getting the runs we’ve been looking for.
“We have heavily relied on middle and lower half which is not ideal. So we need to rectify at the top. The guys in the top five have to put hands up and come to the party,” Jason Holder concluded.
