After sealing the Test series against Bangladesh 2-0 at their backyard, Windies skipper Jason Holder, who bagged 11 wickets in the match, admitted things have started turning good for him now.
Meanwhile, Holder led the team from the front as they routed the Tigers in the second Test at Kingston in Jamaica.
“I just think it’s coming together for me now,” Holder said after the game.
Talking after the match, Holder stated that it takes time for one — to get going particularly in the longest format of the game.
“I’m probably 30-odd Test matches into my Test career, and I’ve always remembered Clive Lloyd saying that he learned to play Test cricket after three years. It’s good to see the selectors have given this group [of players] some confidence in terms of sticking with them,” he asserted.
Holder has had a brilliant start to this year returning with 28 wickets with three five-wicket hauls.
“I guess I’m now getting into my own in terms of my cricket at the international level, I felt the skill level was always there. It’s just a matter of putting it together,” he added.
Moreover, he has also chipped in with the bat while scoring 265 runs at the average of 37.85. Holder, however, admitted having been the beneficiary of conditions that assisted his bowling.
“Quite frankly, I think the surfaces obviously helped me in terms of my movement and conditions were in my favour pretty much in terms of this home series. I would say things are really coming together for me, both with bat and ball. I still would like to be a little more consistent in terms of getting a few more scores,” he continued.
However, Holder admitted that he wants to play the role of a genuine all-rounder for the Caribbean.
In conclusion, talking about his team, Jason Holder feels they need to improve in certain areas to expand their game.
