The Barbados-born player after the game said that he was pleased with how he came back after bowling a no-ball and took a double hat-trick to win the game for his team.
“Classic finish, not the best of starts but just trying to stay in the game. Total opposite to [yesterday], not starting well but being able to finish. Pride myself on [not bowling] no-balls, pleased with how I came back, bowled a dot ball next up and then they had to go at it with wickets in hand. Nothing to lose on their part but plenty to gain on mine. Pumped up for the moment, I love playing at Kensington Oval. We have the best fans in the world. Want to thank the England fans as well for coming out. The atmosphere is electrifying,” said Holder after the match.
