Ramiz Raza appreciate Holder for leading West Indies to stunning win


LAHORE-Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has lauded West Indies skipper Jason Holder for leading his side to a stunning win against England in the first Test of the three-match series.

West Indies on Sunday registered an inspiring four-wicket triumph against England on the final day of the first Test at the Ageas Bowl, which gave them 1-0 lead in the series. Crediting the victory to captain Holder, Ramiz said: “Jason Holder had written an excellent script for his bowlers and took them along confidently, which helped his side stun the hosts,” Ramiz said this on his YouTube channel.

He said that the West Indies maintained their dominance throughout the first Test and played very positive cricket. “It is a very big victory for them as in the past, they’ve not been able to win many matches in England. Probably, they got this historic win because they’d arrived one month prior to start of the series due to the COVID-19. They got plenty of time to get acclimatised with the conditions, which proved very fruitful for them.”
