WE KNEW WE CAN DEFEAT INDIA: HOLDER

The captain of the West Indies cricket team said that he had a strong indication that the team could hold up the pressure and could definitely grab up a win against India who looked very confident in the last three matches.

 

Holder is a surprised man now after his team crowned up a win of 11 runs which was almost seeming impossible at some point of time, but the boys did a wonderful job and finally glammed up a win against India

 

The hosts defended a below par score of 189 and sent the visitors hurtling for just 178, 11 runs shy of the target. Skipper, Jason Holder, led from the front, finishing with career-best bowling figures of 5 for 27, his first-ever five-wicket haul in ODIs. "We knew we could beat India. Just needed some application," a jubilant Holder said, at the end of the match on Sunday (July 2).

 

Kesrick Williams, who bowled the crucial 49th over, conceding just two runs and taking the massive wicket of MS Dhoni, also came under special praise from his captain. "I want to make a special mention of Kesrick Williams - showed a lot of maturity in his second game, showed a lot of heart as well," the captain said.

 

 

Chasing the modest score, India never quite got going, despite Ajinkya Rahane's steady 60. Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli - who looked in fine form during the just concluded Champions Trophy, were dismissed cheaply while Dhoni dawdled his way to an unconvincing 114-ball 54. Holder said that picking early wickets was the key for his team's victory.

 

 

India has won the previous match against West Indies and was looking in a very good forma throughout the series but as of now West Indies crushed team India for a memorable win.

 

The pitch seemed to be very slow and the batsmen are facing a lot of trouble during the series as they are not able to score and the run rates over the series are going at a very slower rate as it used to be in different conditions
