A day after Jason Holder led West Indies to a historic series win against England, the International Cricket Council suspended the skipper because of his team’s slow over rate during the second match in Antigua.
West Indies have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series after crushing victories in the first two matches but Holder, the world’s top-ranked test all-rounder, will sit out the last game in St Lucia starting on Saturday.
Holder, 27, was named man of the match for his innings of 202 not out and two wickets in the 381-run win over England in the first test in Barbados.
However, former Australian spinner Shane Warne has slammed the ICC for this decision and also urged Holder to appeal against this ban before the third Test in St Lucia. He also questioned ICC’s common sense in the ban.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
