After a close and entertaining five-match T20I series, West Indies managed to beat England by 3-2. However, it was Jason Holder who stole the show during the series decider. He went on to pick a double hat-trick. Moreover, the fact that he picked it in the final over of the second innings was icing over the cake. Thus, he went on to win both, the player of the match award, as well as the player of the series award. Thus, he will be heading to India with a lot of confidence.
Their limited-overs tour to the Asian nation is all set to start from January 6. Thus, Holder is hopeful of his side doing well against India. While speaking to ESPNcricinfo, he said that West Indies have to believe in themselves.
“We’ve got a couple of days before we start, start over, and then we go again in India. Nothing is impossible. We’ve got to believe that nothing is impossible and continue to be happy for one another’s success and continue to build as a team. I was just pleased with the consistency in terms of the wicket-taking column,” said Jason Holder.
Holder also appreciated the atmosphere in the dressing room. He had heaps of praise for the way everyone in the side co-operated. Further on, he spoke about being consistent as a unit. Holder also stated that they are still not a finished product yet.
“For me, this is the closest that I’ve felt a group be in a very, 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. Even though you might not understand a certain decision, everybody’s still buying in with it,” he said.
“Tough luck to the guys who didn’t really get the opportunity but they never showed it: I ain’t seen a boy sulk. That says a lot about the camaraderie and the strength of the unit. I don’t think it’s a finished product and we’ve got to strive to be consistent,” he added
