West Indies’ journey in the inaugural edition of ICC World Test Championship has started in a bizarre fashion as they were thumped by India 2-0 in the two-game Test series. In these contests, West Indian batters managed an unenviable distinction of registering their shoddiest ever batting average of 14.95 in any Test series.
Seeing his unit’s winless record against India in Tests stretching to 17 years, West Indian skipper Jason Holder was found extremely disappointed. The skillful all-rounder admitted that India came across as a far superior side, but added that his team failed to apply themselves and that too in home conditions.
Jason also talked about the batting talent of the country as he said that they don’t have a plethora of choices and there can be no quick fix to their muddles. The 27-year old cricketer is of the opinion that his cricket board will have to invest a lot more on first-class cricket to improve their standard and performance in the purest form of the game. It would be interesting to see how West Indies fares in their future assignments concerning the ICC World Test Championship.
