Holder hoping Dominica debut pays dividends
All-rounder Jason Holder is hoping his first game of competitive cricket in Dominica turns out favourably for the West Indies when they clash with Australia in the opening Test at Windsor Park starting on Wednesday. The 23-year-old set foot on the Nature Isle for the first time on Saturday when the West Indies arrived to begin their final preparations, reports CMC.
And despite not having played a single <g data-gr-id="11">first class</g> game here, Holder said he was looking forward to the experience and also hoping the West Indies could get a positive result.
“We’ve had a good week in Barbados of preparation and we’re here just raring to go,” Holder said here on Sunday. “This is actually my first time to Dominica so I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve heard a lot of things before and obviously seen the last Test match when Australia played the West Indies here so hopefully it is a little better than our last time in terms of the pitch and we get a good game.”
