Skipper Jason Holder believes West Indies cricket could be set for a return to the glory days after upsetting Pakistan by five wickets in the third and final Test in Sharjah on Thursday.
Holder is confident that the struggling West Indies — indomitable in the 1980s with 27 consecutive Tests without a defeat — can return to the top.
“I have no doubt we will get back on the track to take West Indies cricket back to the top,” said Holder, appointed captain in October last year.
“I can only hope this is a very good win for guys,” said Holder. “For us it is just a matter of consistency. We have no reason to be complacent with just one Test victory.”
Holder urged fans back home to continue supporting the West Indies.
“Stay with us and keep supporting us. We have shown people that we can do it and we have what it takes and not a roll over team and been competitive,” said Holder, who showered praise on Brathwaite.
“I think Brathwaite was outstanding,” said Holder of the opener who finished the series with 328 runs.
“Kraigg is one of those people who has come up playing cricket his entire life and he has dominated in most of the matches…”
