KINGSTON, Jamaica – West Indies captain Jason Holder spoke to members of the media after the second Test match against India at Sabina Park on the final day of the MyTeam11 Test Series, co-sponsored by Skoda and KEI.
Shamarh Brooks scored his maiden half-century in his fourth innings – 50 with nine boundaries off 199 balls in over three hours at the crease. Holder made 39 and Jermaine Blackwood made an enterprising 38 after being called up as a concussion substitute for Darren Bravo.
Holder hit nine fours and faced 36 balls before he was last man out. Blackwood’s knock included four fours and a straight six and came off 72 balls. West Indies were bowled out for 210 in the second innings. India on by 257 runs.

“Obviously we are disappointed, we didn’t play a complete game of cricket in both the games. The bowlers gave their 100 percent … on the field every single day of this Test series, and the bowlers have delivered. It has been a heavy workload on the bowlers, and at no point have they dropped their heads. Every time I called on the bowlers they stood up for the team. Kemar Roach was exceptional and Shannon Gabriel was also good again. Rahkeem Cornwall came in for this match and he fitted in quite well. He bowled long spells and showed his quality,” Holder said.
