West Indies captain Jason Holder suspended for St Lucia Test

West Indies

West Indies will be without their captain, Jason Holder, for the third Test of the series against England after the ICC suspended him.

Holder was held responsible for his team’s slow over rate during the win in Antigua. West Indies wrapped up the three-match series with a second successive win – this time by 10 wickets – within three days in Antigua. They won the first Test in Barbados by 381 runs within four days.

The man likely to step in for Holder is vice-captain, Kraigg Brathwaite, who led West Indies in two Tests on their tour of Bangladesh last year, which Holder missed due to injury.

After the match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Holder dedicated West Indies’ performance to the family of Alzarri Joseph, who played on despite the death of his mother on the third morning. Victory gave West Indies their first Test series win over England since 2009.
