Holder was appointed West Indies ODI Captain in 2015 after Dwayne Bravo was relieved of his duties following the debacle of the Indian tour. A great all-rounder in the making, Holder has the talent and importantly the mental strength to become a great cricketer.
This young attacking Jamaican batsman is known for his never say die attitude. His coming of age was during the series against England in April/May of 2015 where he scored his maiden century and a brilliant counterattacking knock of 85 helped West indies record a rare test victory at Kensington Oval. Definitely one for the future.
20 tests, 1325 runs, Ave. 36.80
Churning out hundreds since he was at Under 13 level, Kraigg didn’t have the best of starts to his test career. However, he has worked hard on his game and has come back stronger than ever. Only 22 and having over 1000 runs under his belt, this level headed right-handed batsman will be the rock of West Indies batting for years to come.
Having only featured for the West Indies in one international game so far, Miguel Cummins is a fantastic prospect for the future. Tall and quick, his pace has unsettled many a batsman at regional level and once he harnesses his talent, he can become a great fast bowler for West Indies in the future.
West Indies Cricket is still admired worldwide. However, it is up to the players to regain that pride and passion representing your nation brings, and it is also up to the board to ensure the right structures, and personnel are in place for us to rise to the top again. This has been the dream of the West Indies fan for over 3 decades. Time to make this dream a reality.
