HAMPSHIRE: Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has showered praises on 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 pulled off a four-wicket on the final day of the first international Test at the Ageas Bowl since the coronavirus break on Sunday. The win gave the visitors a 1-0 lead in the series.
Ramiz Raja credited the win to West Indies’ captain Jason Holder, who he said led his from the front. “He had written an excellent script for his bowlers and took them along confidently.
The cricketer-turned commentator said that the West Indies remained a dominant side as they played a positive brand of cricket on all the five days of the match. “It is a very big victory for them as in the past they’ve not been able to win many matches in England.
Ramiz said England had a strong bowling attack but West Indies’ got an upper hand on them at that front.
